FYM ON THE LIST: OUTSIDE LANDS DAY 2
Massive crowds overtook day two at Outside Lands 2012. Luckily Golden Gate Park is an expansive setting to navigate, lending a mildly comfortable journey from stage to stage on foot.
San Francisco-based Thee Oh Sees dominated a foggy afternoon at the park, with their energetic brand of garage rock psychedelia. Frontman John Dwyer's howling vocals paired with up-tempo spazz-out jams like The Dream, create a commanding presence live.
Passion Pit's leading man Michael Angelakos may have canceled a string of shows this year due to battling depression and bi-polar disorder, but on day two of Outside Lands his performance was aces. New tracks from Passion Pitt's July release Gossamer, went over extremely well with the Twin Peaks stage audience.
The coolest thing FYM saw all day, was the photo taken above. While Passion Pitt rocked out their foot-stomping keyboard electro prowess, fans hoisted a man in a wheelchair up to see better. Possibly the greatest crowd surfing scenario we've ever witnessed.
Dr. Dog's roots-driven sonic eccentricity, is astounding to see LIVE. Their latest record Be The Void (Anti-Records), is an album of the year contender in our book. Dr. Dog continue to tour the U.S. through November, click HERE for tour dates.
Metallica closed out FYM's day two at Outside Lands. It was everything you would expect: pyrotechnics, juiced-up metal, circle pits, and a whole lot of negative energy. But that's what is great about going to festivals, sometimes you get to see bands perform live, that you wouldn't dare pay to see solo. Cheers, FYM.
