The Strokes

“You ready for some Grateful Dead action after this?” asked singer Julian Casablancas early in the Stokes set, referring to Furthur, the band led by the Dead’s Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, already in progress at the eastern edge of the polo field. The uncertain response suggested fans were staying put – just as others were for Furthur. The Strokes sounded exceptionally muscular in the park’s expansive setting. Fabrizio Moretti contributed heavy beats to “Vision of Division” and “Reptilia,” as Casablancas eased his vocals from deadpan to excited and back again. “This is It” slowly built to a sing-along as Albert Hammond Jr. and Nick Valensi created an intricate overlap of guitars. “I remember playing these songs in front of four people,” Casablancas said, looking out on the tens of thousands of fans. “It’s really surreal.” Even, apparently, after all the year’s of the band’s success. -[Rolling Stone]

The Strokes and Furthur were two of many participants (including Bassnectar and My Morning Jacket and Al Green) at the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco on August 14th & 15th. In addition to sets from Gogol Bordello, Social Distortion, Phoenix, Kings of Leon, and many more (photo sets of all those bands are below), Outside Lands also featured an appearance from “one of the day’s best acts” Chromeo

“…At about 5:50 PM, one of the day’s best acts appeared at the Outside Lands Festival.

The music was thumping, adrenaline pumping, the sun shining, and many in the crowd — tapping into a singular energy — could hold back no longer. They put their inhibitions aside and let themselves be drawn to the beats blasting from the Twin Peaks Stage. Some ran, jumped and moved like they never had before, heading toward a common purpose.

Of course, I’m referring to the bum rush of fans that managed to scramble past the guards and bust down part of the fence along John F. Kennedy Drive, allowing scores of people to hustle in before the riot control guards on horsies and the rent-a-guard dudes in orange t-shirts could stop the inflow.” – [San Francisco Chronicle]
