On August 9-11, San Francisco's Golden Gate Park erupts with the Outside Lands music festival, featuring more than 75 performances by an insanely-eclectic lineup of artists. This year's headliners are Paul McCartney, Nine Inch Nails, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'm most excited to see The Head and the Heart, The National, D'Angelo, and Thao & The Get Down Stay Down (video above)!
