we headed down to cali for a long weekend to attend the outside lands music festival in san francisco. the drive was 13 hours from seattle but our excitement made the time pass quick, especially with stops along the way for tasty food at voodoo doughnut in portland and in-n-out burger in redding ca. the outside lands festival blew us away and is one of the best music festivals i have ever attended! when we weren’t at the festival, san fran local and friend, aubrey, took us to some amazing eateries and bars.
ok go performing an acoustic set.
the ‘annie shot’
best interpretive dance goes to the buff dude in the middle. the tune-yards were on stage at the time.
sia is sooo adorable. her chit-chat between songs was funny as she called out a dude for having hairy armpits and told a ginger she’d make out with him.
gorgeous day to sit in the grass and listen to music.
i had to take a gander at amoeba. this place is huge but the los angeles location is supposed to be massive.
the hour and a half wait outside was totally worth it at dottie’s! recommendations: cornbread w/ jalapeno jelly, veggie frittata w/ avocado, black bean cakes, everything!
had to see the golden gate bridge…or half of it at least.
this makes the third time this year to see grouplove live.
electronica artists were the best of the fest in my opinion. eskmo creates all sounds like ripping paper, opening cans, and beating on a pan and loops them. other discoveries were paper diamond, the limousines, and deadmau5.
hitchcock with a stereo!
the main reason for the trip! our first time to see BEIRUT!! his band is incredible and to this day i am still kicking myself for missing his set at sxsw 2007.
deadmau5…wow! he’s playing in seattle this thursday and i really want to go. i was in total awe the entire time. you can kinda see his lit up face and ears. so rad.
the candy forest was fun to walk through. outside lands takes the cake for best decor and just looked cool all around from the food vendor signage to the multi-colored lights in the trees that surrounds the golden gate park.
this is one of the best dishes i have ever eaten and it came from a food truck! the confit pork hash with summer succotash at 3-sum eats makes me want to move to san francisco. the plum cantaloupe lemonade is a must also!!
the diner near our hotel also celebrated lucy’s 100th birthday with a wall of memorabilia inside along with an outfit worn by lucy on display.
