William Hung: Bonnaroo Grand Marshall
Manchester, TN- The second annual Bonnaroo Mardi Gras parade took place on Friday night (technically Saturday morning) with a special, curious guest of honor. William Hung, the American Idol cast off appeared as the Grand Marshall. Hung delivered flat, off-key versions of a few songs including Can You Feel The Love Tonight and She Bangs. No word as to whether this was intended as a commentary on the vocal quality of performers within this scene.The Inverted Umphrey’s>moe. Switch
Manchester, TN- Two months ago in Las Vegas, Umphrey McGee emerged during moe.s set. On Friday night moe. returned the favor, appearing mid-way through Umphreys McGees late night performance at the Other Tent. The members of the quartet emerged one at a time during a jam that developed out of Triple Wide and remained on stage for Recreational Chemistry and Brent Black (the latter song also featured String cheese Incident drummer Michael Travis who was cajoled out of the audience by moe.s Rob Derhak). Then the group brought out Umphreys manager Vince Iwinski for a version of Enter Sandman with Iwinski looking particularly Hetfieldesque. Following the song, Umphreyss returned and kept the metal momentum going with a take on And Justice For All.
