Outside Lands 2009 In Photos

Last year, San Fran’s inaugural Outside Lands festival featured Radiohead, but also power outage issues. This year: No Radiohead, but abundant electricity. Trade-offs! While Thom was twisting words at the Reading and Leeds fests in the motherland, Golden Gate park welcomed three days of artists that cut a wide demographic swath, including smart hip hop by way of Q-Tip, fraternity fodder in Dave Matthews Band, vintage South American psychedelics in Os Mutantes, and the iconic panty magnet Tom Jones. The fest made news by inviting Jack Black and Kyle Gass step into Beastie Boys shoes, and having Fergie not pee her pants onstage. If you couldn’t make it, we sent photographer Paige Parsons to race through the pot smoke and abundant recycling stations and take lots of shots, and also there are these videos:
