This is one of our favorite cities and we booked a last minute show here so we could get our act together for Friday’s Bonnaroo set. And for the first time in like a year, Kishi Bashi isn’t opening for us. Some guy named Michael Flynn is opening. From where I’m sitting backstage, I was grooving along as one of his songs had a nice deep Portishead-like beat to it, so I googled him just now and clicked on his website where I read this:
How incredibly cool. We’ll gladly reciprocate and suggest you check out Michael’s music. The show with Run DMC was at Boston College, wasn’t it? I specifically remember how pissed they were to be opening for a band they’d never heard of, who couldn’t rap for shit. Either way, Godspeed Michael Flynn. It’s okay to be That Guy.
