My Morning Jacket Plays The Who

From Rolling Stone’s coverage of last weekend’s Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee….

“But the best attended gig was a solo set from My Morning Jacket, the eclectic hard-rocking quintet, which made its fourth appearance at Bonnaroo in 2006. The band tread lightly on its experimentalism of its most recent album, Z, and played more straightforward, soaring rock, including covers of the Rolling Stones’ “Loving Cup,” the Who’s “A Quick One While He’s Away” and the Band’s “It Makes No Difference.” “Bonnaroo is kinda like Thanksgiving or Christmas for us,” My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James says backstage. “It’s another day on the calendar that you really look forward to.”
