The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival released the 10th in their Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup Clue game today, 1/31. As has been the norm for the Thursday edition of this year's twice weekly game, the haiku that makes up this Bonnaroo Clue could be found by visiting the Bonnaroo365 YouTube channel, the Bonnaroo App, and Radio Bonnaroo.
When the three pieces are put together, the haiku is as follows:
A writer now done
inspired pastoral moves
From East to West
After a series of extremely hard clues, this one is only the second of the ten that seems to have gotten a fairly unanimous consensus guess from clue sleuths on the Bonnaroo Facebook page, the Inforoo Message Board, and Twitter. That guess is the already heavily rumored Father John Misty.
The line "A writer now done" likely refers to Father John Misty's song "I'm Writing a Novel." The second line "inspired pastoral moves" is a clue to the "Father" portion of his name, a pastor often being called Father. "From East to West" could refer to the East Coast raised artist who moved West to join Fleet Foxes.
Of course, there's always the possibility that these "easy" clues are a swerve and actually refer to someone else entirely. If you think you might have a different guess that works for the clue, you can play along in one of three ways; by posting your guess in the comments of the Bonnaroo Lineup Clue post on their Facebook page, on Twitter using hashtag #rooclues, or on the Inforoo message board, where some of the most seasoned clue solvers have had success guessing past clues.
While some of the other clues in the Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup Clue series have come to a general consensus guess, most are still open for interpretation. If you'd like to play along and add your brain cells to those already parsing previous clues, you can find all of the Bonnaroo 2013 Lineup Clue game haikus here.
