Welcome, rocker nation, to the second episode of Rock it Out! Blog in its brand new format. Every Friday, host Sami Jarroush rounds together an esteemed panel of critics, musicians, and comedians to discuss the week’s biggest headlines live from our new set at JBTV in downtown Chicago.
This week, Sami sits down with Consequence of Sound News Editor Chris Coplan, Twin Peaks guitarist Clay Frankel, and music critic Ernest Wilkins (Rolling Stone, Vice). They assess Bonnaroo’s 2015 lineup, specifically the rational of booking Billy Joel as a headliner and the acts you should make a priority over the course of the weekend. They also discuss Run the Jewels’ upcoming gig opening for Jack White and H&M’s new clothing line inspired by Coachella.
