Inside Bands

Don't overlook these lesser-known acts at Outside Lands


Paul McCartney and Nine Inch Nails are a given.

But you're going to Outside Lands, so it seems only fitting to think outside that box a bit, right? Here are four under-the-radar bands worth checking out this weekend:

Love The National? Check Out Daughter
These lo-fi rockers provide the perfect soundtrack for a post-beer garden makeout session with your new fest friend.
Fri 4:40p at Panhandle

Love Young The Giant? Check Out Atlas Genius
This poppy indie band will leave your feet sore from dancing. And, oh hey! You already know some of the words to "Trojans!"
Sat 2:10p at Twin Peaks

Love Foals? Check Out MS MR
Dark, a little trippy, and full of drama, this New York-based duo harkens back to early-aughts-era U2 infused with Florence & the Machine.
Sun 6p at Panhandle

Love Kaskade? Check Out Plump DJs
The UK-based funky EDM duo's been around for years, but somehow they haven't yet received the accolades or spotlight they deserve. Catch them before everyone else (finally) jumps on the bandwagon.
Fri 4p at The Dome by Heineken

Outside Lands
Fri-Sun, Aug 9-11
Golden Gate Park

Tickets: Via StubHub
