First off, no Chris Crofton Show (Crofton has a cold; feel better, Chris) or Weekend Round-Up this week. If you're in Nashville and want to check out the show haps, visit this weekend's Critics' Picks and music listings. Also, there's always the CMA Music Fest.
The rest of Team Cream and I are currently embedded at the 'Roo, and we've got Thursday recaps coming your way on Rubblebucket, Yelawolf, White Denim, Brian Posehn, Phantogram, Alabama Shakes, Glossary, Cherub and more. Stay tuned. Also, there's this: Artist laminates have been replaced with wristbands, which have a scannable chip attached to them just like all the plebes' wristbands. We certainly would never indicate that we condoned sharing/trading/purloining artist laminates in past years. We're only saying that if you were planning on doing that, don't. See a picture of this year's artist wristband — courtesy of Jeremy Bullock from Road to Bonnaroo winners Wild Cub — after the jump. RIP, artist laminate. I didn't do anything to earn you, but I always embraced the unwarranted sense of entitlement and VIP status/access that came with inheriting you by sheer luck.
