As you probably noticed in this morning's liner notes post — or in one of the 50,000-and-change dead-tree editions of the Scene floating around — this week's cover story is all about the 'Roo. As you read this post, my fellow Cream Teamers and I are indeed on our way down to Manchester, Tenn., ready to clock some serious hours under that ass-toasting Middle Tennessee sun and bring you all the coverage that's fit to (digitally) print on this year's Bonnaroo haps.
But before all that, let's talk about what, without fail, is among my favorite things to put together every year: Bonnaroo Bingo. This year's card was illustrated by PJ McQuade — who also doodled our absolutely outstanding, Dirty Dozen-referencing cover this week. You can see it above or download it as a PDF here. As you'll see, we've swapped in some new action this year. Gone are the Skrillex hair of last year's Bonnaroo Bingo and the vuvuzela of 2011's, but new action includes those damned ubiquitous Macklemore haircuts, a dusty old Dust Bowl refugee and more. If you're down in Manchester, play along and send your completed card (honor system!) here to Scene HQ — address and instructions are on the PDF. I'll scrape together some sort of prize pack for one lucky winner. I hope you like promo CDs, stickers and an old leather vest!
