On Saturday, I went into the city with my friend Katie and her best friend Abby. The weather was great (at first). We watched Portugal the Man and Explosions in the Sky. Had some wine. Laughed a lot. Then, we went over to see Passion Pit (as shown above). They were not our favorite so we just waited for Katie's favorite song before moving on to Dr. Dog.
I ended up losing Katie and Abby and since I'm not really into crowds, I found my way out and bought some tea. The weather was all the sudden so freezing, I half expected it to start snowing. And unfortunately, I was dressed for 70-80 degree weather. Whoops. We ended the night with Sigur Ros. Followed by In-in-Out. It was a lovely evening :)
But the main reason I decided to go to Outside Lands was for Sunday. My friends and I decided it would be The Best Day Ever and I really think it might've been, though I really truly say that about so many days. I don't have many complaints except for that maybe Stevie Wonder was too good, and I didn't get to meet him and become one of his backup singers or something.
Okay, debriefing time. I feel the need to do this captain's log-style:
11:00am: T.J., Shelby, and I got to the city in the morning and found the greatest parking spot.
12:00pm: We went over to Golden Gate Park as Allen Stone was singing with his soulful, beautiful voice. SO good.
1:30pm: Next up was fun. Again, beautiful, beautiful voices. They were so good and I felt bad for having only listened to them on the radio.
2:40pm: During Franz Ferdinand, we sat on the grass. Because we only knew one song...you know the one.
4:00pm: I accomplished my life long dream of seeing Regina Spektor. This lady!!! She was adorable and kind and everything had I hoped for! Except she didn't play any of my favorite songs. Soviet Kitsch, y'all.
5:25pm: Jack White. I tried so hard to get into his music. I mean he's Jack White. I waited... and waited... and then he played the catchiest country song and I decided that I love him.
7:20pm: Stevie Wonder!!!!! Oh my goodness. I don't have words... we danced a lot. We were happy. It was so good.
10:30pm: Wonderful conversation. Delicious tacos.
I'm struggling to come up with any adjectives besides "wonderful" and "good" and "perfect" and "beautiful", so I'll just leave it at that.
