We did some traveling outside our normal stomping grounds this weekend, landing in East Bernard and, natch, Tennessee. But don't worry, we still got plenty of nightlife photos in the Bayou City too, not to mention the weekend baseball wrap.

Bonnaroo 2008 in Manchester, Tennessee

Mark Austin hopped a plane and hit up the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, bringing back photos of Les Claypool, Jack White, M.I.A., Pearl Jam, Cat Power, Ben Folds and B.B. King, among plenty others.

The Women of Bonnaroo 2008

Sure, Bonnaroo brought dozens of great musical acts to the Volunteer State, but it also drew plenty of pretty women. See if you can spot the Olsen twins... for real.

1:11 a.m. at XO

Bill Olive got a late start on the night of Saturday, June 14...

2:13 a.m. at Sculptura

...and then it was after-party time.

The Kolache-Klobase Festival in East Bernard

Jay Francis headed outside the loop and found sausage, barbecued chicken, buttered potatoes, sauerkraut, sweet tea, polka music and kolaches.

Yankees vs. Astros

Houston lost to New York. Three times.

As you can see, that's a lot to recover from. Here's hoping your week is (as) peaceful (as you want it to be). -- Keith Plocek

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
