-A.S.
It’s just after 1:00 here at Bonnaroo and today’s press conference should begin any minute. The participants today are Mike Birbiglia, Janeane Garofalo, Michael from What Made Milwaukee famous, Henry Butler, Abigail Washburn, Cory from Minus the Bear and Glen from the Swell Season.

Here are the highlights. Enjoy friends.

Janeane Garofalo:

-We’re doing comedy in a circus tent. How can you not be funny in a circus tent? How can you not be funny doing comedy during the day with music in the background?
-On what Chris Rock opening for Metallica in front of 70,000 people: Chris Rock is huge, it’s also culturally a good time for Chris Rock to perform.
-Don’t say anything bad about Pearl Jam, because they’ll kick your ass.
Mike Birbiglia:
-On hippies: I’m getting my hippie on. I washed my ass with handsoap today.
-There was a baby at our set last night. That seems safe.
-The fans here have good taste. I’ve been here three times and I heard songs here before they got played on Gossip Girl.
On political comedy: It is preaching to the converted here. You mention Obama’s name and people go nuts.

Abigail Washburn:
-On being at Bonnaroo for the 3rd time: I feel like I’ve started to connect with the people that make this thing happen. It’s a family full of love and devotion and fun.
-On her decision to do a Chinese incantation during her set Saturday: I ordinarily wouldn’t do it, because I think it might freak people out. I think people want to be freaked out at this festival.
-It’s an amazing thing to be booked here. People are coming here to dig and to take new music home. It gives me a sense of fearlessness.

Glen from Swell Season (pictured below):

-The moment Metallica goes on I’m gonna lose it. That’s what these festivals are so good for. To get out of your head.
Mike from What Made Milwaukee Famous:
-I got a text from the guitar player yesterday saying I needed to check out a band, and usually that means they suck (He neglected to say what the name of the band was though), but this band rocked. We got there to see the second half of “I Want You (She’s So Heavy).
