As things got dark, so did the music: Phoenix lit up the Twin Peaks Stage with their chartbusting electro-pop that was inescapable from 2009-2010. On the main stage, Trent Reznor came out all shrouded in chiaroscuro for a tense set of industrial metal that has somehow remained ageless since the mid-90s. Flashes of bright white bounced off set pieces and Reznor was looking more ripped and angry than ever in a sleeveless pocket hoodie, ready to devour the microphone whole. But unlike McCartney's set on Friday night, from which we were unable to pull ourselves away, the smart kids knew to hit the buses early and make a breezy exit back towards downtown or BART or Divisadero bars - [SFist]
The sixth annual Outside Lands Music Festival happened last weekend at San Francisco's gorgeous Golden Gate Park. The second day (Saturday, 8/10) featured anticipated headlining sets from Nine Inch Nails and Phoenix, both making their way around the festival circuit this summer. Saturday's performers also included Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jurrasic 5, The Head & the Heart, The Growlers, Gary Clark Jr. and more. Pictures from those artists and more are in this post.

\Like at Lollapalooza and Firefly, and like we'll be doing again at Bumbershoot, BrooklynVegan was set up each day of Outside Lands in the Soundwave tent where our hosts Christen Thomas and Dave Hill DJ'd, told jokes and interviewed and hosted bands that were playing the fest.

Pictures from Outside Lands Day 1 are HERE and Day 3 are on the way. More from Day 2 below...

Ahh the Magdalene Archetype... a favorite, a show-stopper, an equalizer, a love song, a scream for justice, a perfect role, a motion picture, a truth, and a dream.

Great sound ! If you like Indie music and find underground artist, I suggest you to discover a new one by writing "Niko Laetailleurs" in the you tube search bar. One of my favorite..
