SPONSORED – Spin @ Bonnaroo

So as may or may not be evident, this here site has been part of a network run by Spin in which they handle the bulk of the advertising you see along the top and right of the site and I’m provided the means by which to expand my Faberge egg collection. And as such, I will occasionally be putting up some content provided by them which I would hope is of interest to visitors. Such as some of these interviews at Bonnaroo last weekend, conducted in a backyard setting provided by Jeremiah Weed beverages with the likes of Mumford & Sons (below), Phoenix and Fanfarlo, amongst others.
