The biggest crowd in Road to Bonnaroo history watched moody pop six-piece Sol Cat claim the first performance slot up for grabs in the 7th annual Road to Bonnaroo. More than 700 music fans filled Nashville’s Mercy Lounge and High Watt venues for a night stacked with gutsy, give-it-all performances. Fellow favorites DeRobert and the Half Truths and Tesla Rossa claimed second and third place, respectively.
