14 Hot Bonnaroo Cameos And Covers From Saturday
Stevie Wonder Robert Hooman

7. The Avett Brothers


Toward the end of a fire-breathing set of Carolina roots music and heartfelt Americana, rain began to fall - finally - on the crowd at the Avett Brothers show at the Which Stage on Saturday. In the late-afternoon of a scorchingly hot day, the drizzle was a welcome, cooling reprieve which the Avetts promptly celebrated with "Salina," whose evocative imagery about life on the road in America climaxes in a refrain of "the rain it fell / the story went on."
