We’ve all heard about Coachella, but have you heard about Outside Lands Festival? Perhaps a less strict more eclectic version of a music festival, OLF is a 3 day music festival located in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Not only does it feature musicians of the past and present but it boasts a wide array of local restaurants bringing their favorite noshes,wine and beer tastings and art–all within the gates.

Here is my personal Outside Lands music lineup:

Friday- Beck, Die Antwoord, Andrew Bird, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Justice

Saturday-Zola Jesus, Alabama Shakes, Big Boi, Passion Pit, Sigur Ros

Sunday-Franz Ferdinand, Regina Spektor, Jack White, Stevie Wonder, Skrillex

 

More on my first big music festival experience afterwards!

when our mouths are filled with uninvited tongues of others
and the strays are pining for their unrequited mothers
milk that sours is promptly spat
light will fill our eyes like cats

and they shall enter from the back
with spears and scepters and squirming sacks
scribes and tangles between their ears
faceless scrumbled charcoal smears

through the coppice and the chaparral
the thickets thick with mold
the bracken and the brier
catchweed into the fold

when our mouths are filled with uninvited tongues of others
and the strays are pining for their unrequited mothers
milk that sours is promptly spat
the light will fill our eyes like cats
cataracts

cat eats bird. sees world in whole new way. thinks he can fly.
