Under the Bridge


Here’s a view from a Riverside Drive bridge on the edge of Silver Lake, the cool East Hollywood ‘hood that was once the old stomping grounds of iconic L.A. rockers like Henry Rollins, Beck, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Concrete Blonde and Johnette Napolitano and countless other influential artists.

A (Rockin’) Day in the Park



What could be better than seeing Metallica (above) crank it to 11 and rock the leaves off the trees in Golden Gate Park on a cool summer night under the stars? How about if Foo Fighters (below), Jack WhiteNeil Young and Beck are also on the bill?!

That fantasy lineup becomes reality Aug. 10-12 when San Francisco’s fifth annual Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival turns the huge lawn area in the heart of the city’s famous park into a giant rock arena!

Considering that meh bands like Muse and Phish were among recent past headliners, this is clearly the hottest lineup in the music fest’s history. (Although Pearl Jam‘s ’09 set totally rocked!) And at a little over $200, tickets for the three-day event are very reasonable.

Music legends Stevie Wonder and Neil Young, Scottish “Take Me Out” hit-makers Franz Ferdinand and Brit indie faves Bloc Party are also in the music mix of over 50 bands that are set to play Outside Lands this summer! Check out the full lineup here, and get more details at  Outside Lands’ site.

Coachella can have its Tupac holograms. We’re definitely hitting up Outside Lands with the very real Metallica!
