Reptar, Futurebirds to Play Bonnaroo 2013

The lineup for this year’s Bonnaroo was unveiled today, and the initial reaction from the Interneterati was a resounding “meh.” BUT! There was good news for the Athens music community, as the country-rocking lads in Futurebirds and the world-pop freaks of Reptar are scheduled to perform in the sweltering summer heat.

Also appearing: Mumford and Sons (blah), Macklemore (meh), Daniel Tosh (fart). And R. Kelly, which is cool! And Billy Idol, which is not so cool. And so on.
