Frontman Matt Berninger strolled into the spotlight in a three-piece suit, sipping what appeared to be a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from any one of the festival’s Wine Lands vendors. The band then launched into one of the best sets of the day, breaking into “Fake Empire” within the first three songs and interspersing their typically melancholy lyrical matter with a fun, humorous stage presence (Berninger made sure to note that his daughter’s pre-school teacher was in the crowd, putting himself in strong position for the “Best Dad on Stage” award this weekend). And to cap it all off, Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead popped up on stage, grabbing a guitar and singing along to the bands’ last number.

The 2013 Outside Lands Festival happened last weekend across seven stages at San Francisco’s sprawling Golden Gate Park. The fest kicked off Friday (8/9) and included headliner Paul McCartney, plus sets from Chromatics, The National, Chic (subbing for an ailing D’Angelo), Jessie Ware, Rhye, The Men, Smith Westerns and more. Pictures from their sets 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.
