Man, to be young and carefree… that’s something you never get back. I think I lost that right around when the first student-loan repayment bill showed up. Something changed, mostly responsibilities, but the shit in the back of the head, that changes too.

We camped real close to the boys from Stoplight Observations at Bonnaroo 2013. I don’t know their exact ages, but I know they still seemed to be in that carefree mode. Taking everything in with excitement, nothing behind their forehead telling them to slow down.

This was their first Bonnaroo. It was also Spud’s first Bonnaroo. Talk about your different worlds. Young dudes from Charleston, SC, and an OG from Venice, CA. It’s funny how some places make you forget your age altogether. I think that’s what happened here. Just a bunch of dudes getting to know one another in a place where there are no worries, and of course very little cell phone service. Dig on…
