Indie-pop band MisterWives showed off their crafty sandal-making skills in Teva’s DIY Lounge at The Grind during Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival. The band spoke to Rolling Stone about their experience at the weekend-long festival.
Held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee, the Bonnaroo experience is unparalleled. Bassist William Hehir explained why. “It’s definitely breath-taking,” he told host, Michelle Marie. “We’ve played at different festivals, but this one has a unique feel. It’s kind of like being isolated on an island for four days.”
Lead singer, Mandy Lee was sill in disbelief about performing on the main stage at the festival and discussed how special the experience was for them. “Bonnaroo has been a dream collectively for us as a band,” she said. “We still haven’t come down from that high. It’s gonna take a while. “
Along with their magnetic stage presence, MisterWives’ eccentric and colorful music carries over into their personal style. “We don’t limit ourselves to one sound, one genre,” said Lee. “We like to mess around with everything and be eclectic, and I think that’s safe to say with how we dress. It’s all about expressing yourself and individuality.”
MisterWives continued to express their eclectic style through DIY activities at The Grind. The band had fun decorating their Teva’s in true, colorful fashion.
