The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is coming, coming in a big way baby, August 28-30, 2009. It’s going to be mega. So all you NIMBYs out there should start your yammer now, while you still have a chance to affect this Assault on Your Way of Life.
The problem for you NIMBYs this year is the growing awareness that Outside Lands Makes Money for San Francisco. And if your neighbors start thinking that the money earned from Outside Lands subsidizes free admission at Strybing Arboretum / San Francisco Botanical Garden (and dude, many of them are starting to think exactly this way) then you’re going to need to yammer even harder this go-around.
I mean, just look at these punks raising Hell at last year’s OL. Young people enjoying themselves in YOUR park. Can you imagine?
Anywho, here’s your chance to hear about OL09 in the Richmond District at a rare evening meeting of the monthly Richmond District Police Community Relations Forum. Take care on your way there tonight.
In reality, Outsides Lands is a go, whether you like it or not, but if you’d like to understand how the Richmond Station cops on 6th Avenue are plannning on handling this large event and all the side-effects of noise and traffic and yada yada, then this is the place for you.
Oh, and speak of the Devil, “Ranger Dave” of Outside Lands has an announcement about the addition of ten more acts to the bill of fare:
“The bison were straight giddy this morning. On an expedition to a remote region of Golden Gate Park, Ranger Dave made contact with ten more artists that had been previously unclassified to Outside Lands. The proof lies in the documentation below.
(*species native to the San Francisco Bay Area)
See you there!
