FYM ON THE LIST: OUTSIDE LANDS • SAN FRANCISCO • DAY THREE • GOLDEN GATE PARK
Outside Lands is a three day rock n' roll marathon experience. Massive crowds all in it together, mixed with great food, local beer + wine, live art and other luxuries make this our favorite festival in the country.
When Stories Don't End came out in April, FYM was so thrilled to hear a new record from Dawes. The last time we saw them live was on 11/11/11 in Seattle Washington at the Moore Theatre (supporting their second album Nothing Is Wrong). The band's Cannery Row of songwriting narratives continues to spark our imagination -especially during the dark days of Seattle winters.
Dawes' set on Sunday in Golden Gate Park was a perfect balance of old and new tunes. FYM was so into the cuts we were hearing off their last two albums and then BOOM, they pulled out their signature track When My Time Comes... and the crowd came together singing their hearts out on the chorus. It was truly a unifying magical moment.
