Outside Lands Music Festival 2011: Saturday Photo Gallery with The Vaccines, Sia, Christina Perri, Rhett Miller and MoreBy Carl Pocket
We safely made it through another day of the Outside Lands Music Festival but with a little added pinkness to our skin. The grey skies finally turned blue which didn’t make us sad one bit, the only thing that could do that was the realization that we would only have one more day in the majestic San Fran climate. With the sun beating down most of the day we made our way into all the tents to catch members of our favorite acts in a stripped down and more accessible setting.
While we were trying to cool down, Rhett Miller of the Old 97′s heated up the tent with an unplugged acoustic set. Even though we caught Ximena Sarinana with a full band at the Panhandle stage, watching the charming girl play a song she hadn’t performed live with just her keyboard took our breath away and made everyone playing ski-ball in Barcade stop and take notice. Even DJ’s can get into the stripped down styles and The Mexican Institute of Sound brought out just an ipad, iphone and two stools for a unique impromptu song that had everyone wondering just how he did that.
On Friday we may have seen some magnificent hair flipping from some females but Sia and Christina Perri might have taken that crown after Saturday’s sets. And if anyone was sick, the British group The Vaccines did their part in making everyone feel just a little better while bassist Árni Hjörvar showed he may just have the best hair of them all. Enjoy some pictures of everything we saw on Saturday over at Golden Gate Park and let us know who had the best hair flip of the weekend!
