Outside Lands 2017 Saturday pics (Metallica, Real Estate, Thundercat, more)
Outside Lands continued on Saturday (8/10) in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, unfortunately without Queens of the Stone Age or A Tribe Called Quest; both cancelled their sets. Metallica delivered a great two hour headlining set, returning to the festival for the first time since playing in 2012; more on their set HERE. Saturday at Outside Lands also had sets from The Avett Brothers, Foxygen, Josh Wink, Kaytranada, S U R V I V E, Dawes, Thundercat, Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, The Lemon Twigs, Real Estate, Temples, and more. Check out pictures from the day in the gallery above (and more of Metallica HERE)
San Francisco Examiner reviewed some of the day’s acts:
On the more laid-back Sutro Stage, Los Angeles’ Dawes served up catchy, 1970s California rock-reminiscent songs, concluding with a big sing-along; they were followed by earnest Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy sporting an acoustic guitar and heartfelt, personal songs.
Same goes for North Carolina folk rockers, The Avett Brothers. Siblings Scott and Seth shared lead vocal duties on a set varied with rockers (“Slight Figure of Speech”), covers (Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun”) and intense ballads (“I And Love And You”).
Over on the Panhandle stage, Foxygen frontman Sam France (in white makeup) headed up the California band’s exuberant indie rock, with local nods, playing the song “San Francisco” second, and greeting the crowd, “We’re queer and we’re here.”
