Go To Bonnaroo Without Leaving Home
(Soundbite of music)
SCOTT SIMON, host:
And if you're looking for a bit of relief from the news, you might consider a quick trip to Bonnaroo. The four-day music festival is now underway on a 700-acre farm outside of Nashville. If you can't make it, you can at least hear some of the performances at nprmusic.org.

THE NATIONAL (Music Group): (Singing) Stay out super late tonight, picking apples, making pies...
SIMON: The National played yesterday. Still to come: Norah Jones, LCD Soundsystem and Kris Kristofferson.
Bonnaroo runs through Sunday. If you listen online, you won't have to wait in line for the port-a-potty.

THE NATIONAL: (Singing) Were half-awake in a fake empire. Tiptoe through our shiny city with our diamond slippers on. Do our gay ballet on ice, bluebirds on our shoulders. Were half-awake in a fake empire.
