It’ll Cost You $200 Minimum to See the Outside Lands Music Festival, Or You Can Sneak In – Here’s HowTuesday, August 9th, 2011
All right, at this late date the only way you ticketless souls are going to get into the somewhat mismanaged Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is to fork over $185 (plus TicketMonster fees) minimum OR to try to sneak in.
Now lots of people have a friend on the inside, so those peeps can just walk through the gates, but you, well, you’re going to have to deal with that eight-foot cyclone fencing.
You’re going to have to go under, over, or through the wire.
Here’s UNDER. See how that works? Easy peasy.
Well there’s the problem: No bottom tension wire on the chain link fence + Line posts too far apart = Jailbreak:

And here’s OVER. This here is called the bum rush:
See how that works right here. Oh, and later in the video, you can see one version of THROUGH.
Remember, this is one of those victimless crimes. (Its like punching someone in the dark.)
But if you feel guilty for not paying your fair share, well then you can throw a five-spot into a Recreation and Park donation box sometime – they have them at Strybing Arboretum, for example.
All right, be warned that the 2008 OL was The Best Ever. Remember picking up those nine Euros stranded by MUNI on McAllister and taking them along for the ride on your way home in the Land Cruiser? Good times. Oh, wait a sec, that’s my memory. But remember Radiohead and the sound system trouble? Oh, you weren’t there? Well that was The Best Ever. Nothing can compare with 2008.
Anyway, maybe the Outside Lands should be free for those 21 and younger, something like that?
Here’s the lineup for 2011:
Muse, Phish, Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, Deadmau5, The Shins, MGMT, Girl Talk, The Decemberists, John Fogerty, Erykah Badu, The Original Meters, Beirut, The Roots, Arctic Monkeys, Big Audio Dynamite, STS9, Warren Haynes Band, Big Boi, Major Lazer, Little Dragon, Julieta Venegas, Sia, OK GO, The Greyboy Allstars, Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band, Old 97′s, Mavis Staples, !!!, Latryx feat. Lyrics Born and Lateef, Best Coast, Collie Buddz, Phantogram, Charles Bradley, Foster the People, Lotus, STRFKR, Junip, Pajama Club, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Vaccines, Toro Y Moi, Vetiver (band), The Limousines, The Stone Foxes, The Joy Formidable, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Wye Oak, Ana Tijoux, Orgone, Lord Huron, Tamaryn, Grouplove, The Fresh and Onlys, Ximena Sarinana,Ty Segall, Sunbirds, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Diego’s Umbrella, Ghost Robot, Paper Diamond
Or just buy some three-day (that’s all that’s left for GA ticks) or single-day “VIP” tickets, I don’t care.
Anyway, enjoy the show!

World Series Update: Watch Games Three and Four Outdoors with Gavin Newsom, But Leave Your Beer at HomeWednesday, October 27th, 2010
[UPDATE: Word on the street is that this isn't going to happen after all....]
Erin Sherbet has the deets on the coming Jumbotron-style showings of games 3 and 4 outside in the rain this weekend. But please remember:
“This is not a party zone,” said Newsom spokesman Tony Winnicker. “It’s a place for families and true baseball fans who want to cheer Giants on — there are lots of other places to party and buy pitchers of beer.”
Harsh. “True baseball fans” don’t drink beer, apparently.
“I never realized how boring this game is”
Conflict Betwixt Skaters and Skateboarders in Golden Gate Park – The “Green Line” of the “Skatin’ Place” at 6th Ave.Friday, October 15th, 2010
I’ll tell you, I never before noticed this painted oval at our relatively new “Skating Place” in Golden Gate Park near 6th And Fulton.
It’s the Green Line of Golden Gate Park ’cause it divides the skaters from the skateboarders, apparently.

Here’s a veteran skater laying down the law to a couple of Sk8tr Boies with skateboards. Boarders should stay inside the line and skaters (both inline and regular) should stay out.
Or something like that.
OTOH, if Heather Graham ever comes back to town, she can skate wherever she wants, right?
Can’t we all get along?
I don’t know, I think they could have figured out a way to have Pride Weekend and the World Cup at the same place at the same time this A.M.
Or, in other words:
They were still setting up this stage when the action started in South Africa:

Fans forced indoors tried to make the best of it, craning their necks as if they were in the front row of a Metreon movie theatre:
(Of course, batting practice precluded AT&T Park’s JumboTron from showing the contest.)
Fans arriving at Civic Center this morning were told to go to “some bar” to catch the match. One fan announced that he was “mega-bummed.”
San Francisco is a “world-class” city so it deserves a “world-class” symphony, of course. Brace yourself for a brand new season of whatever conductor Michael Tilson Thomas has in store for you this time around, for 2009-2010.
OMG, it’s MTT in the JHP! Click to expand:
Don’t miss MahlerFest ’09!
