My wife and I are rocking our first Roo this year and we're bringing a bunch of 18 year old boys with us. My son and his friends graduate from high school this June and we're celebrating in style. My son was like water on a rock since November talking us into it, next thing I know, I'm laying down a deposit on a RV and talking other parents into letting their children join us. What no one knows is my wife and I are going to have way more fun than the kids. We are PUMPED!!!
Name: Zach What my username represents: a login name from an old crappy call center job I had that butchered my last name From: Columbus, OH Favorite Bands: Third Eye Blind is my all time favorite, my favorites change with the seasons. Started getting into jam bands after my first Bonnaroo even though I didn't see any but have been listening to a lot of Phish and Umphrey's. I still listen to Taking Back Sunday at least once a week. I like most music anymore except for some reason I still hate The Roots and am not really into funk/soul music. Floyd and The Beatles will always be my favorite classic rock acts. First Concert: Aerosmith and Jonny Lang when I was in the 5th grade Last Concert:Third Eye Blind on Dec 30 but I'm seeing Grace Potter in less than a week First Roo: 2012 though my experience was not what I was hoping for. I went with one of my best friends since the 7th grade and we've not spoken since we got back. I spent the first two days being mostly sick and I had a messed up foot so it was really hard getting around. He made us leave sunday morning coz of the rain so I missed about 90% of the bands I came to see. I can count on my fingers the number of bands that I saw and one of them had to be the Roots so we could get up close for RHCP (moderately worth it). Overall I regret missing way too much and I'm going to do it all over this year and really take it in. Favorite Books: World War Z, Harry Potter, Palahniuk books Favorite Movies: Garden State, anything with Zombies, American Beauty, The Goonies Favorite Tv Shows:Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Mad Men, Office, Parks and Rec, Modern Family, Entourage Roo wishlist: OM+M, Postal Service, ATDI, TAB (since i missed phish ) Lana Del Ray (for my wife), Lumineers, Tom Petty or Macca

Zach from Meeeesheeegan here.
Joined here cause I'm skipping Coachella for the first time in 3 years to attend Roo. God I hope for some better headliners than they got, but close to the same undercard.
My username is the name of a very seldom played Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention song.
My Fav bands are Zappa, Floyd, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Umphrey's, Bisco and about 20 others that won't fit here. Lets just say that my tastes I'm music are vast and enigmatic.
My first concert was the family values tour with Stained, The Crystal Method, Korn, Filter, and Limp Bizkit when I was 18, yeah I got a late start with a few really shizzy bands.
My last concert was Coachella Weekend 1 last year
This will be my first Bonnaroo. Even though this was always the one I wanted to do first, somehow I've made it to 5 different festivals before Roo.
Favorite book is... I don't know, I LOVE The Song of Ice and Fire series by GRR Martin (yes, I'm a nerd for fantasy stories) but I'd have to say my favorite book ever is Fight Club by Chuck Pahliniuck.
My Fav film of all time is Easy Rider. My favorite living filmmaker is David Lynch.
Favorite TV shows are Breaking Bad, GoT (of course) and Shameless
I'd really like to see Roo lock down Macca & Furthur, just so I can get those 2 things off my bucket list (Beatles & The Grateful Dead) but I'd be really happy with a better lineup than Coachella is sporting right now
