When I read Manchester on the main page, I though "Ohhhhhhh... Manchester" but then Andy pointed out that it's name was stolen by a place in Tennessee... Grrr...

Whatever next? A Birmingham in Alabama? I SCOFF at the thought!

 :D

There is also a Birmingham in Michigan, as well as a Memphis and a Richmond.

Sorry that the Manchester you saw wasn't the one you wanted it to be, Alex.

Something I'd like to know is where the hell is Old Zealand? Why do we have NEW Zealand? I've never heard of Old Zealand (well, technically, it would just be called Zealand because when they named it, they wouldn't have realised it would be old). It's all just a big Geographical conspiracy AGAINST me, isn't it?  >:(

AHHH!! G. Love is going to be there too, and i only just missed him last week when he was here!!! i wish i lived in Bonnaroo...
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

That's a very good question, Alex. Of course, that could apply to a few other places as well. Was there ever and Old York, an Old Jersey, or an Old Hampshire? Hmmm? What about Old England?

Huh??

The first tickets will be priced at a special rate of $169.50 each- from bonnaroo website.
well i guess my definition of special is a bit off.

So lucky you guys live in the States. AGAIN us poor Aussies miss out on the goods. However, I do have a recommendation to anyone going...

While checking out a Aussie bands site, I noticed they were playing there.

If you get the chance, SEE THEM. Their name is The Cat Empire -- they play an interesting blend of jazz, rap, reggee, and whatever else they feel like throwing into the mix -- with a lead trumpetter who also does lead vocals, another guy on lead vocals and percussion, an awesome drummer, a keyboardist, a scratcher (or whatever you call those guys with the turntables), and a backup gang of trumpets and sax.

Seriously, they always have really pumping gigs, so hopefully you'd enjoy if you get the chance.

I was considering roadtripping.

But damn, $200 (after the service charge), plus probably just expenses and food will be $100.

And then tshirts.

f*ck
