The Duhks perform "Mighty Storm" Live at WTMD

The Duhks (http://www.duhks.com), fly down from Winnipeg, Canada, to visit the WTMD studios for the third time.

It's their first visit, however, since the band's lineup change in which brother and sister Sarah and Christian Dugas replaced singer Jessee Havey and percussionist Scott Senior, respectively.

Watch as Sarah Dugas takes command of the studio while the band tears through "Mighty Storm," a stellar single from their album, "Fast Paced World."

These were my favorite acts at Bonnoroo in 2007, my only time there...but I am making a 2009 mix as well for when I win these tickets! :-) Thanks guys!
  • "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart," by Wilco
  • "The Hardest Button to Button," by The White Stripes
  • "Don't You Evah," by Spoon
  • "Professor," by Damien Rice
  • "Tamacun," by Rodrigo y Gabriela

8 a.m. Laura Renner

My favorite Bonnaroo artists.
  • "Measuring Cups," by Andrew Bird
  • "Maps," by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  • "Peacebone," by Animal Collective
  • "Love and Happiness," by Al Green
  • "Funeral," by Band of Horses

10 a.m. Allie Barnes
  • "Stop the Bus," by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
    She's an amazing artist and this song live is awesome.
  • "Road Song," by Steel Train
    It's the ultimate traveling song, and it reminds me of being at Bonnaroo. (And Steel Train is one of the best live bands out there.)
  • "The Ark," by Dr. Dog
  • "So Glad To See You," by Hot Chip
    This gives the mix a different vibe, and Hot Chip is one of the best bands to dance to--especially at a festival,
  • "I'm Amazed," by My Morning Jacket
    MMJ is the ultimate festival band and this is the best encore song.

12 p.m. Ned Samson

The first three are side projects of different members of The Strokes. The fourth is a Strokes cover. And the last if The Strokes themselves.
  • "Brandy of the Damned," by Nickel Eye
  • "GfC," by Albert Hammond, Jr.
  • "Brand New Start," by Little Joy
  • "Last Nite," by Adele
  • "Someday," by The Strokes

4 p.m. Lauren Seserko

I chose these songs because I've never been to Bonnaroo and am not able to attend this year (unless I win!). I hope to attend next year.

If I were there this year, this would be my mix tape on the drive down to get me pumped to see this amazing acts. Its pretty much a selection of my favorite Bonnaroo 2009 artists!
  • "Kids," by MGMT
  • "Next Messiah," by Jenny Lewis
  • "L.E.S. Artistes," by Santigold
  • "Skinny Love," by Bon Iver
  • "Golden Age," by TV on the Radio

6 p.m. Randi Helton

These are my top five bands, with a strong song from each of them.
Each song makes me want to sing along and have fun.

  • "Get Myself Into It," by The Rapture
  • "Daylight," by Matt & Kim
  • "Submarines of Stockholm," by A. C. Newman
  • "Arms Tonight," by Mother Mother
  • "Better Things," by Passion Pit
