$ara takes flight

Well, I suppose I'm here to balance out all the DJ Remix Superstar stuff that John Calvin, née Smith, has been posting.

Getting ready for Bonnaroo in a few days, and while I am EXTREMELY EXCITED, I'm also extremly nervous. Saturday night is going to be absolutely insane, and too many decisions are going to have to be made.

1-2am: Chromeo
1:30-2:15am: Lupe Fiasco
1-3am: Sigur Rós
2:30-3:15: Talib Kweli
2:45-4:15am: Kanye West

From 8pm to 1am the only acts are Jack Johnson and Pearl Jam. What the fuck, Bonnaroo.

All I know is that I'm going to be at Sigur Rós for at least an hour. Their new song, "Gobbledigook," is fantastic. You can download it, as well as stream all of Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust at SigurRos.com.

Their new album drops June 16 on their website.

I'll be posting live from Bonnaroo over the weekend, so stay tuned!

I'm totally jealous.
Sigur Ros is the only really decision though.

I'm thinking 1-2 Chromeo, 2-3 Sigur Rós, then Kanye forever. I am sad about Lupe and Talib, but cuts must be made...
