BMI, Mercy Lounge, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and the Nashville Scene presented the third installment of the 2012 Road to Bonnaroo competition at 8 off 8th last night (4/16). Performers included Courtney Jaye, Ravello, Oh No No, Electric Hearts, Fly Golden Eagle, The Captain Midnight Band, Sol Cat, and Escondido.
Fly Golden Eagle, who energized the crowd with some hypnotic psych rock and just the right amount of sax, emerged victorious and secured the final spot at Bonnaroo 2012, set for June 7-10 in Manchester, Tenn. Also earning praise from the audience were Courtney Jaye, who had a charming Stevie Nicks thing happening, and Escondido, whose sprawling, dusty brand of rock perfectly suited the clips of Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly playing on the projection screen behind them.
