Bjork1

I love me some Bjork, but that lady is crazy. I mean that in the best possible way, but you don’t show up to the Academy Awards in a swan dress (and also wear said dress on the cover of Vespertine) if you aren’t a little nutty. Also, if anyone has watched her performance from the Colbert Report last year where shew as promoting Biophilia, you can’t think anything other than “Damn. Bjork is a little insane.” But, of course, that is at least half of why we love her. She’s playing Bonnaroo this year. In fact, she’s the highest billed person on the line-up behind the three headliners (Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers). And there’s a good reason why. Bjork makes amazing music. If Radiohead and pure sexuality had a baby with an 808 machine, it would sound something like Bjork. So, we’re going to use Bjork’s big break-out hit, “Army of Me,” to get the ball rolling on the big ball of crazy and awesome that should define her concert. It’s going to be really great.
