And we’re off …

To a very, very rainy start. This is part of the South’s charm, right? Eh .. not buying it. Right now we’re just thankful we got our tents up during a very brief dry spell. But enough about that, you can read more of our irritated rain ramblings on Twitter. Back to the music:

The Thursday lineup at Bonnaroo is a bit slim, as most festivalgoers are spending this first day in a formidable car line that stretches for miles, but there are a few choice pickings: The futuristic R&B funk of the fabulous Janelle Monae; my former Columbia, Mo., homies White Rabbits; the double hip-hop bill of the Knux and People Under the Stairs; and the uber-buzzed-about Passion Pit.

We’re gonna chat with the Passion Pit boys before their set tonight, in addition to our favorite chicken-eating country-punks, Those Darlins. Here’s hoping we stay dry!
