Apollo Sunshine and Bonnaroo

From the Apollo Sunshine boys:

Hey everybody!

We were recently contact by a fan who is very discouraged about the fact that we were passed over this year for the Bonnaroo Music festival... He want's to start a campaign to get them to change their mind...

Dear Apollo Sunshine fans,

Like many of you, I saw the lineup for Bonnaroo this year, shouted "Beck AND Radiohead!!' and just like that two hundred bucks popped out of my pocket and started packing up my camping equipment.

But then I looked a little closer at the lineup, and you know what? Something is missing. They need the smaller, hipper acts who have something to prove, the sorts of bands everyone will be listening to next year, but right now only the real music fans know about. The folks in Tennessee have booked some of the biggest musicians in the world, but they've forgotten who we all know is the best live act in the country.

Bonnaroo needs Apollo Sunshine.

I'm in contact with Ashley Capps, head of the festival, about this matter but I'm hping to get the help of the rank and file AS fans. What you can do now is email the Bonnaroo site and let them know how much you love Apollo Sunshine, what a great live show the guys put on, and that you think the band could really add to the lineup.

Thanks everybody! I'll keep you apprised of developments, and let you know if there is anything else you can do.
