It seems to be festival season here at the LMP with back to back shows featuring 2008 music festivals. For this episode I will be playing music from the quaint little music and arts festival known as Bonnaroo. As always the lineup this year was stacked which made it pretty difficult to pick just one. However, I recently downloaded a show that distinguished itself from the pack, Mark Lynn's taping of My Morning Jacket.
Up to this point I hadn't heard very much of their music, but I've been seeing a lot of buzz about them in the live music blogosphere. I especially had heard good things about their Bonnaroo set and had to check it out for myself. The first thing that I noticed about this set was the length, just shy of 4 hours. To entertain a crowd for that long you need to bring your A game and they definitely did that. Powerful musical performances, a great selection of covers, and guest appearances by Kirk Hammett of Metallica and comedian Zach Galifianakis all added up to one unforgetable show. The sound quality of the taping was also stellar which is made even more impression when you consider that it was raining for part of the set.
