Outside Lands SF

What do you think of the Outside Lands Festival lineup here in San Francisco? The most interesting thing about it was following clues dropped over the weekend via Twitter, then watching blog-rocosims (new word?) form around the hints. Now that we have the lineup,would you go if tickets were free? That’d be one way to get a crowd. And perhaps a lineup that had, back-to-back, without schedule conflicts: Pearl Jam, MIA, The National, Callexico.

The rest of the bands, meh. Considering that last year had Radiohead, Beck, Wilco, and so many others that were stored in long-lost braincells, this year, given the price, well, really, who gives a shit?
