    I lived there for 5 years and just moved away about 4 months ago. I have heard quite a few people actually getting pulled over for tint, first time is always a warning if they buy the "I just bought the car and have not taken it down yet" line. I enjoyed the city if you embrace the college life. Good bars and every chain restaurant u could ever want. Plus it is only 30 minutes from Nashville, though expensive cab ride back, and 40 minutes from Manchester which host Bonnaroo every year. If you don't know what it is...look it up.

    Thanks for the insight. I'm getting a promotion for moving, so I might just buy a new car. If not, sounds like ill have to remove the tint.

    Bonnaroo is a gigantic music festival with all kinds of artists, rap, rock, pop, folkish stuff.

    Pretty much unanimously a bunch of bands I have no interest in seeing. Tom Petty was there.. he puts on a good show, though,

    Don't go unless you enjoy the smell of piss and feces, not hearing the bands you came to see, paying $5 for a bottle of water, watching assholes do psychedelics and embarrass themselves or do a lot of drugs yourself.

    I see that Bonnaroo 2013 featured White Lung and Little Red Lung..
    WTF are these bands?'

    It's just too much of an eclectic mix of S$%$ for me to be interested. I'd rather just go to one concert.

    R Kelly, Macklemore, and Jack Johnson, all in one festival is just TOO MUCH.

    How have you not heard of Bonnaroo? lol

    I have friends and family in Cali, Texas, and NY, and they know all about Bonnaroo.

    I take it that means you're into rap... ur gay.

    I'm into a little bit of everything, just never been a fan of forking out money to see a concert. I'm cheap like that. I'll go from listening to the Foo Fighters to Led Zeppelin to Tech Nine to Diplo to Jay Z to The Black Keys to 2 Chainz... all depends what mood i'm in haha

    I've never even been to Bonnaroo for the same reasons... It's too expensive, there are only a handful of bands I'd like to see, and I would be miserable and gross for four days. Not worth $250.

    I have a friend who goes every year.

    I'm just surprised you've never heard of it.

    I've heard of Coachella, Lollapalooza, etc, but I've never been. Surely you know Lollapalooza since you live in Illinois, right?
