Best Homage to a Headliner: Diarrhea Planet
The morning after Outkast’s set, Nashville rockers Diarrhea Planet got the day off to a frenzied – and disgustingly named – start. The foursome played tracks off of 2013’s very good I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams with the intensity of a punk show, and ended with eloquent fan-favorite "Ghost With a Boner." Toward the end of the song, however, the band shifted into a killer version of Outkast’s "Hey Ya." It’s worth noting that D.P. did the same thing at Alabama’s Hangout Fest in May, where Outkast were also headlining, but no word yet on which headliner they’ll cover at Bonnaroo, where Outkast will not be performing. Fingers-crossed that they take a whack at an Elton John ballad. C.D.
