DAY TWO @ Outside Lands 2014

Got to the park in time for Jagwar Ma

These Aussie boys have a huge future ahead of them, and their set on the Twin Peaks stage to start Saturday’s festivities was definitely something to take in. While I think they’re still working on growing into their stage presence a bit, it was a fitting psychedelic way to start the day in Golden Gate Park.

Local Natives kicked off the main stage with a day of indie rock

Tycho brought the ambient jams to Twin Peaks

Everyone chilled pretty hard during this set, and who could blame us — the music was perfectly suited to support your stoned-in-the-park afternoon. Loved this set.

Haim continues to blow everyone away all the time

While I was a little concerned they were just pulling from their standard “festival set” antics, you can’t really fault the fact that these girls rock hard and they’re up there giving it their all (bass face and all).

Big Freedia was awesome (duh)

No words. Just AZZ.

Duck Sauce has a great stage setup

Atmosphere had the HUGEST crowd

I couldn’t get anywhere close, but it was absolutely destroying that crowd at the Sutro Stage based on what I saw from the show.

Tom Petty played the hits, the new stuff AND gave tribute to Jerry Garcia

Making sure they kept “Friend of the Devil” in the setlist for the Saturday night set was of obvious importance to the classic rocker and he delivered a heartfelt rendition that served as one of my final moments of day two. Fantastic day of music all around and a perfect capper with a Petty set.
