All your diction dripping with disdain | One To Nothin'

All your diction dripping with disdain


Saturday morning I woke up feeling rough and hit the showers. A few blue Gatorades, an egg frittata and kombucha tea (because we're in SF now, y'all) later I was standing in front of Atlas Genius with a big goofy grin on my face.

Then came Young the Giant, who Emma and I first saw in Florida back in this post (so much hair), and they were just as good as they were back then.

We then ventured to a smaller stage to see Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, where we saw two women wearing nothing but paint, panties and hoods and another woman puking. That was exciting. But I love, love, loved this band. I had never heard them before and at one point the super cute singer just busted out "What's Your Fantasy?" by Ludacris. It was very enjoyable.
Next came The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and they were definitely my favorite show of the day. That singer is insane and I'm all about it. She wore this purple, crinkly suit and shoved the mic down her pants at one point. Their energy was amazing and I got so amped up. Definitely a band to see live.
For Saturday's finale, we opted to see Phoenix instead of Nine Inch Nails because we're happy people and we like happy-sounding music. It was super crowded and we couldn't so much see the stage, but we enjoyed the pretty lights and danced around until we once again ended the night on an air mattress (this is becoming me and Emma's thing).
Then somewhere in between I obviously had a moment with the gourmet crispy bacon and maple funnel cake stand, ate a seaweed wrapped taco and other delicious food that will be at the SF Street Food Festival next weekend (if you're in the area, you need to go. Seriously.), drank some local chardonnay and more whiskey and saw one more person puke. I'd call it a success.
On Sunday Emma and I dragged our tired music-loving carcasses back out to Golden Gate Park to catch Hall & Oats (which we enjoyed from afar while scarfing down the most delicious fried chicken and waffles the world has seen, or just the first I've ever had. Seriously, though, it's a great combo) and Vampire Weekend, who I had never seen live before and they blew me away. They sounded perfect live and they were so dancey that you just had to smile. Then we decided to be old together and miss Red Hot Chili Peppers so that we could actually commute back without fighting 500 drunk people wearing three wolf moon shirts to get on a bus. I know, I know, I'm cringing just typing it, but what's done is done and we made it to work on time Monday morning as a result. Whatever.


Outside Lands gets two thumbs way up.

  1. You missing RHCP is so wrong. I don't know if I can forgive you.

  2. Sounds like a good line up. I'd like to see vampire weekend and I hope they stop by my city. Plus I actually support leaving early to avoid hassles, even if it means missing some stuff.

    ps. don't worry about missing Red Hot Chili Peppers - would have totally done it with you. NOT having to deal with 500 drunkos is worth it.
