Inside Outside Lands

music reginaGT’s guide to San Francisco’s colossal music festival
Outside Lands kicks off Aug. 10-12 in Golden Gate Park with a slew of chart-topping and underground musical acts performing on several stages. And, if you’re anything like us, you’re struggling to pick and choose which bands to see. In our humble opinion, these artists are unmissable:

FRIDAY::::
Beck 4:30-5:40 p.m., Lands End Stage The four-time platinum anti-folk artist has made a name for himself by weaving social criticism and musical experimentation.

Foo Fighters 6:10-7:25 p.m., Lands End Stage Since 1995, the Foo Fighters have been rocking the free world with driving guitar and catchy pop hooks, under the leadership of former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse 8:10-9:55 p.m., Lands End Stage Considering the band just released its first album together since 2003—a nostalgic compilation of American folk songs, called Americana—you can expect to hear classics and maybe some unheard tracks off Young’s next LP at this set.

Justice 8:40-9:55 p.m., Twin Peaks Stage While Justice’s second album, Audio, Video, Disco, strays from the Parisian duo’s dance music roots to the outer fringes of pop, prepare for heart-thumping electronic anthems and a whole lot of sweating.

SATURDAY:::: 
Sean Hayes 1:15-2 p.m., Sutro Stage The soulful folk singer will release his seventh full-length, Before We Turn to Dust…, in September, so expect to hear some new material.

Norah Jones 6:40-7:50 p.m., Sutro Stage The famed songbird has spread her wings since jazz-pop hit Come Away With Me. Her newest collaboration with Danger Mouse, Little Broken Hearts, is both dark and brooding.

Passion Pit 6:50-7:50 p.m., Twin Peaks Stage In just three years, Passion Pit has grown from a college kid’s laptop project to an international electropop sensation.

Metallica 7:55-9:55 p.m., Lands End Stage These Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history.

SUNDAY::::
Regina Spektor 4-4:55 p.m., Lands End Stage In just over a decade, Regina Spektor went from performing in the NYC café circuit to travelling the world in support of her anti-folk/pop. Hear songs from her eclectic new album, What We Saw from the Cheap Seats.

Jack White 5:25-6:35 p.m., Lands End Stage Ranked No. 70 on Rolling Stone’s list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” Jack White is one of the most prolific and renowned artists of the last 15 years.

Stevie Wonder 7:20-9:30 p.m., Lands End Stage One of the most celebrated and prominent figures in popular music, Stevie Wonder has amassed 49 Top 40 singles and 32 No. 1 singles.

Skrillex 8:30-9:30 p.m., Twin Peaks Stage Known for high-octane live shows that combine LED lights, cryogenics, fire, and a storm of electronic music, Skrillex is a must-see.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
