Outside Lands - Friday

Northern California Bay Area festival Outside Lands kicked off Friday, Aug 25 in Golden Gate park to a crowd numbering over 60,000. A concert of this magnitude has not seen the light (or fog) of day in San Francisco since the proverbial Summer of Love over 40 years ago. Opening night saw some of the biggest draw bands such as Beck and headliners Radiohead, which were the first band in the park's history to ever play after dark (and who blew the power. Twice). A wide range of acts also performed, such as heavy bluesmen The Black Keys, reggae giants Steel Pulse, and Berkeley-based rapper Lyrics Born... a historic testament to the birth city of the band that started festival touring-- The Grateful Dead-- and the legendary concert promoter-- Bill Graham-- that changed live music forever.
