Bonnaroo 2015: Dawes

Since their formation in 2009 Dawes has risen to become one of the most well-known folk-rock groups in America. This year marked their third performance at Bonnaroo, however, Friday's performance--a mere week after the release of their 4th full-length album, All Your Favorite Bands--was their first on the main stage.
The best word to describe Taylor Goldsmith, Tay Strathairn, Griffin Goldsmith and Wylie Gelber's main stage debut? Grateful. Lead singer, Taylor Goldsmith thanked the crowd between every single song. 

The quartet played songs from their catalogue including "When My Time Comes", "Time Spent In Los Angeles" and "If I Wanted Someone", taking a moment during "Most People" to thank the fans for being there for them since the beginning. The set was also sprinkled with new tunes "Somewhere Along The Way", "Right On Time", and "I Can't Think About It Now". 

"Bonnaroo is one of the most special festivals in the whole world. This song goes from the bottom of our hearts to every single one of you," Goldsmith said as the quartet broke into All Your Favorite Bands' title track. 

"I hope that life without a chaperone is what you thought it'd be/ I hope your brothers El Camino runs forever/ I hope the world sees the same person that you've always been to me/ And may all your favorite bands stay together"
