Road to Bonnaroo Round Three at Mercy Lounge, April 18: PUJOL, The Clutters, Uncle Skeleton, Action!, Tallest Trees, Kingston Springs, Sarah Silva & The Rouge

Some say that music is about expressing yourself, telling a story only you can tell via rhythm, pitch and dynamics, and changing people’s lives with what you have to say. Fuck that! Music is a competition, so let’s get these scrappy, penniless young vagabonds clawing at one another for a moderate amount of praise and rewards!

OK, not really. In all seriousness, the RTB Series has shaped up to be a fantastic means of hearing some hungry youngsters play their hearts out, and Mercy Lounge recently announced the lineup of the third and final installment of the 2011 Road to Bonnaroo experience. You’ll recall that Chancellor Warhol handily won the first round and Cheer Up Charlie Daniels vanquished the competition in Round 2 — as tweeted by the official Bonnaroo peeps themselves. But here’s the interesting bit about the April 18 lineup: There are no clear, standout white horses. It’s any man’s game! From Cream faves PUJOL, The Clutters, Uncle Skeleton, Action! and Tallest Trees to weirdo pop songstress Sarah Silva, manic pop-rockers Kingston Springs and mysterious relative newcomers The Rouge, it appears to be a pretty even playing field. So let's get that competish stirring. Godspeed to all the dark horses.
