Bonnaroo 365

[Metro D Took Bad Photos @ Bonnaroo]

Missed Radiohead on tour? They webcast their last show in Santa Barbara. Missed Bonnaroo in '08? They're starting to stream it. Technology is here and we never have to leave our house ever again.

This should mean that Pearl Jam's performance will be streamed at some point. Hopefully they will back catalog 2006, so I can cry my eyes out for days as to why I wasn't in the post-apocalyptic Manchester dustbowl heat for Tom Petty, MMJ and Radiohead.

From Bonnaroo:

We are excited to introduce Bonnaroo 365, a program by which fans can relive the Bonnaroo experience year round! Select performances will be streamed periodically at no charge on All performance footage will be taken directly from the festival’s exclusive master tapes while the audio will be remixed from Bonnaroo's pristine soundboard recordings.

The first installment of the program begins on January 11th, 2009 with The Raconteurs, whose Friday afternoon set was a highlight of the 2008 event. Hot on the heels of their grammy nominated album 'Consolers of the Lonely' (best rock album and best engineered) The Raconteurs delivered a classic Bonnaroo performance. Four of the songs from the set will be available for the first time as free audio downloads – one will be available to everyone, while the other three can be downloaded by Bonnaroo Community members only (membership sign-up is free!) The songs to be available for download are "Consoler of the Lonely," "Old Enough," "Blue Veins" and "Top Yourself." If that's not enough, the full set will be available in streaming video at, and radio stations across the country will broadcast the entire set on Sunday, January 11th. Click here to see a full list of stations. The full setlist from the show is listed below.

Beginning on January 7th, we will stream one song from the performance until the 11th when the complete set will be available.
