I'm disappointed that Sunn O))) is going to be across the Atlantic around the time of Roo. I think they would make such an epic late night.
I like Sunn O))), but I honestly think hearing them live at like 2 a.m. after a full day of rabble-rousing in the Tennessee heat might absolutely scramble my brain. Seriously, I need to be in a stout state of mind to handle their brand of madness, and I don't know if Bonnaroo would be the place.
I was thinking if they started at 3:00 am in the Other Tent and played till dawn it would be a good set to lay down and just zone out to.

If your just getting into mastodon, I suggest listening to the instrumental Crack The Skye. All the tracks are on the limited edition, without vocals, and they are by far my favorite mastodon songs. (no offense to anyone but I'm just not a fan of mastodon vocals for some reason)
I realize this is more of a Warped Tour act, but it's very possible Every Time I Die could be there.. They have a new album coming out in March, and judging by the first single "Underwater Bimbos.." it will be devastatingly heavy. Also, they put on a killer live show.
I would also love to see Torche, Mastodon, Russian Circles, Young Widows, The Jesus Lizard, Deftones, The Body, Converge, or Refused there as well.
So boys and girls. We need some metal. Kvelertak sounds pretty good, Bad Brains is kind of metal I guess. We need one or two metal bands in the additions. May i suggest Dillinger, Mike Patton in any form, Baroness, Valient Thor, and Torche

Between the Buried and Me anyone? They're brutal enough for metalheads, but musical enough to perhaps appeal to anyone with diverse tastes (which is perfect for Roo). I would be there in a heartbeat, LN or not.
