Simon Kerr Opens For Rifkin and Fite - 5/27

Three artists left their bands at home Thursday night and went solo before a modest crowd at The End. A Breakfast Club assortment of weeknight showgoers was more than receptive of the two out-of-towners Jesse Rifkin of the Wailing Wall and Tim Fite. Both came from Brooklyn to rock the venue with something a little unexpected. The only local in the lineup, Simon Kerr (above photo), preceded the New York performers with a brief acoustic set. He is one of the singer/songwriters who lists all the right influences behind his pretty melodies. Kerr has an ear for those, fingerpicking stories of past girlfriends who have songs named after them and a ballad about a grandfather lost in WWII. - Jessica Pace



Bonnaroo 2010 Preview


Tennessee's beloved festival Bonnaroo is fast approaching, and if it's anything as good as it was last year, then you'd better hurry up and buy tickets while they're still on sale.

In case you've been living under a rock for the best few months, the headliners include Dave Matthews Band, Nashville's Kings of Leon, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z. Nashville has more than Kings representing at the festival. Other Nashville bands set to play are Space Capone, The NCOs, Caitlin Rose and John Prine, as well as several other Tennessee bands from Knoxville and Memphis.

Over the course of the festival we will be posting up our favorite acts of the day - which is always a difficult process, considering there are three or four great bands you have to miss in order to see one you know is going to be great.

Bonnaroo is a great festival, and if you haven't been, then we highly recommend it. It's more than 80,000 hippies listening to 100 hippie bands. There is much more to do than listen to music. There's a Silent Disco: a gigantic covered dance floor where everyone wears headphones tuned into the DJs music, so everyone can hear the music loud and clear - no need for bunching up near the front and encroaching on everyone else's space. The best part is that from the outside a hundred sweaty people are dancing to what looks like absolute silence.

There are air conditioned tents to watch the NBA finals and the World Cup.

There is a play that repeats several times during the day.

There are comedy tents and celebrity interviews, also air conditioned.

There is delicious food, and endless water tanks to fill up and ward off the heat of the day.

There are showers provided by Garnier™. 

There are awesome people who are ready to be your friend and share their...food...with you.

Be there, go wild and come back with pics. - Deli Staff

Gee it's swell. - Deli Staff
