Bruce Springsteen and Phish. Trent Reznor’s last concert. An economically-successful music festival in this crappy economy. This year’s Bonnaroo has been making headlines for a handful of reasons, but when we sent Flavorpill shutterbug Mike Newman road tripping down to Manchester, Tennessee, to cover the fest for us, we gave him some pretty specific instructions: Make us smell the patchouli oil. Oh, and don’t take band photos, because people can find tons of those here, here, and here.
