Outside Lands

August 14, 2010 by Post Team 

Outside Lands, No sign may be the biggest ever land outside, but the music of this great weekend Honkin ‘(and wine and food!) Festival of packages from a bike baskets full of bands that are stroked (hey, we mean Aviva) to see. Here, in no particular order, 10 of them, plus some honorable mentions that we had to whisper about.

1. The Strokes (Saturday, 8:45 to 9:45 p.m.)
Yes, the Strokes are playing together again, which means I would have enough to do something catastrophic and / or pill-y-induced 4Loko not be a highlight of the festival. Julian Casablancas can hopefully find a precarious precipice at and singing on stage at the festival. What if there is new album? Hell, if the Strokes just played the song “New York City Cops” and again for an hour, which would be fine with us.

2. Furthur (Saturday, 7:25 to 9:55 p.m.)
Dude, it’s Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead. In Golden Gate Park. Maybe even in the sun. (Remember the sun?) All the Deadheads followed the band’s legendary San Francisco jam psychology around for a reason, you know, and it was not because their records were great. (OK, a few.) This game is scheduled to go two hours, which means that you have time to get your inner hippie before heading out to listen to the Strokes.

3. Janelle Monae (Sunday, 3:05 to 3:55 p.m.)
This is very essential if you have not seen, and very attractive, even if you have. Monae future and its soul / rock let it all out for a spectacular show live – painfully pristine voice, dance moves MJ-esque funk of James Brown, jazz guitar solos, and his signature look and black- white. Come now – in a couple of years, will be leading this thing.

4. Al Green (Sunday, 4-5 pm)
Speaking of soul, no one in the bill for OC is the Rev. Al Green, and lack a whole would be a huge mistake. Too bad there are plenty of other good artists playing at the same time. But no boy of Green, and few in the park this weekend can claim to have written songs as a durable and perfect, “Let’s Stay Together”, “Tired of Being Alone” and (our favorite) “Love and Happiness . Best view 64 years of age, while still on the road.

5. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (Sunday, 3:40 to 4:30 PM)
People walking-rock of this group LA has a way to inject your extended grooves in your mind and allow them to fester there – and that’s a good thing. Mystically sunny and optimistic like many other products of the land of this set is a perfect outdoor classroom-in-the-park-in the band. I wish extra hard for this star glowing gas in the sky to appear.

6. The Soft Pack (Sunday, 12:45 – 1:25 p.m.)
Formerly known as Muslims (wonder why he changed his name?), East San Diego four-piece practice minimized, catchy rock ‘n’ roll. No tangled enough to be punk and hipster is not enough to be neo-garage, The Soft Pack is a nice middle ground between the corners and the great sea, a variety of indie rock in general. Unflashy, but totally fun – The Soft Pack will have to start high energy for Sunday afternoon.

7. Cat Power (Saturday, 7:05 – 7:55 pm)
Meditating, fragile folk may not seem like a natural choice for a big party, but we feel will Cat Power for a nice break mid-afternoon big beats and bursts of guitar. Chan Marshall songs are thoughtful and deliberate, penetrating, and beautiful. In other words, worth showing up for. If you want to get deaf, noisy-ass band called Wolfmother is playing at the same time.

8. Nneka (Sunday, 1:25 to 2:05 p.m.)
Raised in Nigeria, and rose to fame while living in Germany, Nneka Egbuna is the rare pop artist who has experienced the third world struggles sings. His proud soul and hip-hop anthems having plight of Africa with the more sober than they do positive. But her voice airy, bouncy hip-pop beats, and crafting fun tuning skills hope a lesson otherwise the frustration in the exploitation and violence.

9. Phoenix (Sunday, 5:55 to 6:55 p.m.)
This group of French indie-rock was one of the most acclaimed albums of 2009 – the perception, Wolfgang Amadeus infectious Phoenix, best known for the irresistible and now omnipresent single “1901.” (You know, that song is catchy-ass in the Cadillac commercial.) This is possibly the best rock-ish band on the entire bill again (back to the U.. S., anyway). And because Phoenix is made up of synth-and euro-beat-happy, there will be some time get-together also.

10. Garage A Trois (Sunday, 4:30 – 5:10 pm)
Lint-jazz? Psych-funk? Jam-noise? No pre-existing gender territory seems very appropriate for this collaboration of three parts, which employs sax, drums, keyboards, fuzz-out, and an eight-string guitar to spin some tunes challenging, funky instrumental. Garage A Trois is definitely the best group of disturbance, the distortion happy jazz musicians on the bill this year. And yes, it is also unique.

Honorable Mentions:

Social Distortion (Sunday, 6:55 to 7:45 pm) – We never going to overcome these songs SoCal punks aging ‘gritty on love, vice, and cars.

My Morning Jacket (Saturday, 5 – 6:30) – Jammy hectares of southern rock with reverb vocals, guitar solos, wetlands, and a jovial atmosphere, this is the ideal rate Saturday afternoon.

Tokyo Police Club (Saturday, 5:25 to 6:15) – Honest, smart indie rock with melodies borrowed short, fast tempos and precise lyrical detail.

So those are our choices. Who are you excited to see? Tell us your must-see bands in the comments.
