I went to the Outside Lands music festival last weekend. Really, how could I not — it was walking distance from my apartment. The fest was in Golden Gate Park — so you could wander through the trees between concerts — terrific venue.
It was fun to see MGMT, Girl Talk and some others. Actually, my favorite part was dancing to Miguel Migs deejaying in some igloo-like tents.
They really put some effort into the props and "furniture" for the event, including these latticed windmills.
There were art installations in the trees, including this kind of steampunk tree house with a rustic diamond. Reminded me of my diamond earrings.
At the Girl Talk concert, drugged up 20 year olds petted my hair and backpack, and remarked on how soft they were. This was my cue to leave.
And I was rewarded for doing so. We went to an after party at the Boom Boom Room, where Gypsyphonic Disko was playing. Amazing! Their sound is a crazy Balkan-Urban fusion, with an accordian, Balkan horn, a drumbeat, and a dj. Super fun, boisterous and danceable.
