The Princes do Bonnaroo

Henson Flye won the Princes' Bonnaroo tix give-away with this design.

Shortly, I'll post Sam Eifling's Bonnaroo recap with photos. He caught all four of the American Princes' shows this weekend as well as just about everything else you'd care about. But for a behind the scenes peak at the festival, it looks like it'll be worth checking in soon with the Princes' fine new website.* Here's what the band had to say on Saturday:

In brief: the shows have completely rocked so far.  Rolling Stone called us a quartet from Lexington, KY and David's dad said that this was "off the hizzle" (text to follow).  Matt hung out with John Oliver and Rob Riggle from The Daily Show (picture to follow).  Collins went backstage with Phoenix and Public Enemy (intra-band acrimony to follow).  Will donned a pith helmet (adventure to follow).  Luke did an astounding hippie dance in between the Beastie Boys and Phish, only to be caught, mid-dance, by a dude who couldn't stop telling him what a sweet band he had (narration to follow).  All told, this has been an incredible weekend.  You guys are in for some treats as soon as we gather our wits about us.

Will Boyd, earlier today, updated his Facebook status to "just crash landed at home, and no amount of soap will make this right," so I'm betting the road to recovery and more posts will be relatively long. I'll let you know.

*Also, check the website for the a full list of everything the dudes did on their 90s covers night back on Riverfest weekend.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
