The redheaded stranger turned 80 this year and he's no worse for wear. Like the whiskey he often sings about (he opened with 1973's "Whiskey River") Willie Nelson only seems to get better with age -- his voice deeper, his words wiser -- even if he's increasingly aware of his creeping mortality. That the man closed his triumphant set with "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" seemed a little morbid if not too on the nose, but that combination of libertarian spunk and unblinking truthfulness is what makes Nelson a living classic. Which must be the reason John "Uncle Jesse" Stamos felt compelled to slip onstage and play bongos in Willie's Family band for the second half of the gig (he did fine, now let's move on). "Still Is Still Moving to Me" was another latter-day highlight, though the Outside Lands audience was most thrilled to hear old soulful numbers like "Georgia on My Mind" and "Night Life," and outlaw tales like "Beer for My Horses" and "Me and Paul." - [SPIN]
The 2013 Outside Lands Music Festival came to a close back on Sunday (8/11) with performances from country music legend Willie Nelson, Vampire Weekend, Hall & Oates, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foals, Fishbone, and more. Pictures from Sunday's fun are in this post.

Much like we did at Lollapalooza and Firefly, BrooklynVegan commanded the SoundWave Tent for two hours each day with hosts Dave Hill and Christen Thomas. Sunday we had live performances with Dawes and MSMR and interviews with King Tuff and Camper Van Beethoven. Pics from that are HERE and in this post as well.

FOALS FOREVER

WAY higher percentage of better bands, hotter girls, and non-douche guys at this festival than at any I've seen reported here in the past year or so.

Likely because the festival is not in NY or Chicago...

My most favorite band is the red hot chili peppers. Especially their song the californication, one of the best. Hope to watch this band live one day.

I've been to a million concerts and that was maybe the most beautiful performance I've ever seen. The story, the song, the sing along. Thank you Sir Paul for that song and last night.
