Bonnaroo Announces Comedy Lineup!



"I dove into the crowd at my show and suddenly realized that no one had bathed in four days.
It was a strange combination of erotic and disgusting."
-Conan O'Brien

Superfly and A.C. Entertainment have confirmed another exceptional comedy lineup for the Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival's hugely popular Comedy Theatre. In keeping with tradition, Bonnaroo, which will take place on its 700-acre farm in Manchester, TN, from June 12 - 15, will host a dynamically diverse collection of national headlining comics at its famous air-conditioned venue, where fans get a chance to experience sets from some of the most hilarious personalities working today. The full list of comedians confirmed for the festival is below.

"I'm excited to be performing at the 35th annual Bonnaroo food and wine festival," joked Hannibal Buress. "It's an honor to have Kanye West sing lowly under my comedy jokes." Neal Brennan said, "I guess you could say the festival combines three of my greatest passions: music, comedy and porta-potties."

The 2014 event marks the 11th year since Bonnaroo came up with the notion to add this all-important entertainment option to its already monolithic menu of events. From its inception, the Comedy Theatre has been one of Bonnaroo's most popular attractions and has since made a palpable impact on the comedy industry as the festival is now considered to be one of the biggest comedy events in the country.

"I'm excited for the great mix of styles this year," noted Bonnaroo's comedy producer, Rocky Benloulou-Dubin. "I'm really looking forward to another year under the comedy big top with these hysterical heavyweights, ascending stars and the BEST audiences."

As the only round-the-clock major U.S. music festival, Bonnaroo packs an unparalleled amount of entertainment options into its four days. The event has offered its attendees the amenities and community spirit of a small city, with 24 hours of activities including a comedy theater, cinema festival, broo'ers festival, silent disco, salon, sustainable gardening lessons, arcade, Internet cafés, restaurants, yoga classes and hundreds of high quality food and craft vendors.

The 2014 comedy lineup is below:

Craig Robinson & The Nasty Delicious
Taran Killam
Hannibal Buress
Neal Brennan
TJ Miller
Rory Scovel
Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments
Sasheer Zamata
Seth Herzog
Emily Heller

New Music: The Black Keys - "Turn Blue"

the black keys
During The Black Keys’ three-year break between albums, drummer Patrick Carney launched his own SiriusXM show. While Serious Boredom usually features Carney’s favorite indie artists from past and present, today’s episode featured the world premiere of “Turn Blue”, the title track of the Keys’ upcoming eighth studio album.

Following the psychedelic “Fever”, “Turn Blue” is a slow and sauntering blues-rock ballad, with Dan Auerbach crooning ache-filled lines like, “In the dead of the night I start to lose control… but I still carry the weight like I’ve always done before.” Depending on your mood, it’s either the Keys lulling you into their boudoir or singing you a little lullaby.

Watch its accompanying visualizer below:

New Music: Lana Del Rey - "West Coast"

As previously reported, Lana Del Rey has enlisted the services of The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach to produce her new album, Ultraviolence. Today, we get out first taste of their collaboration in the form of “West Coast”, a sultry, atmospheric track that combines elements of 80s-inspired pop with the bluesy grit of The Black Keys. Watch the song’s corresponding video below.
