The Weight has a great post up on the somewhat cryptic messages that have been playing on Radio Bonnaroo that many seem to believe are clues to who will be on this year's line-up - read their thoughts here.
Here are the messages:
Clue #1 "There is more than one Manchester."
Clue #2 "Memphis isn't Albany"
Clue #3 "Clouds taste this way"
Clue #4 "Some Herrings are red, Jimmy"
Clue #5 "Hard Substance, Soft Substance"
Clue #6 "Janis Joplin's reserves will be preserved"
Clue #7 "Rumors are just rumors, but twist them sideways, grow your humor hair and they become a more yen reality. No, this is not about Fleetwood Mac"
Clue #8 "It's not sour, what is sowed in the earth"
Clue #9 "Three certain birds, add one"
Clue #10 "Look to the center of Europe to get the sound, but the band comes form all around."
Clue #11 "Here is another clue for you message board people. Open up the church and you will see the steeple. Some of your guesses have been way off but correct for the wrong clues. Now I must cough."
So let the guessing games begin. Thoughts? Leave your guesses in the comments section.
Word on the street is the initial announcement will be this Wednesday so sit tight and get out your decoder rings in the meantime.
