So tired. Worked the three day event for Outside Lands Music fest with Drew, nephew Anthony and Brenna Neely. We had such a blast. San Francisco has some interesting people. One thing I have to say is they are so polite... We saw so many bands. Drew and Anthony rocked out to Metallica and Neely got to rock out to Jack White. I liked Portugal of Man, Fun and most of all Stevie Wonder. He played Sunday morning a private little concert before doors opened. Flippin amazing. So talented!!! Got to eat with the road crew and show people The bomb breakfast and free lunches. Came home at 2:30 in morning and got back up and started college. Life is so challenging but gosh it can be fun!

Saw Foo Fighters, Metallica, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Explosions in the Sky, Alabama Shakes, Norah Jones, Franz Ferdinand, Regina Spektor, Electric Guest, Jack White, and Stevie Wonder.
Neil Young Mettalica and Stevie Wonder were headliners at The Outside Lands Festival this past weekend in Golden Gate Park . I read 180,000 people showed up over the 3 days. By the time I looked it was sold out. I guess it was very cold Friday night. 30 miles away from the park temps were in the 100's so a lot of people showed up thinking the city would be warm. Never go to San Francisco without warm clothes.
Sigur Rós and Of Monsters And Men are part of a stellar international line-up for San Francisco festival Outside Lands this August, alongside stars including Jack White, Neil Young, Regina Spektor and Stevie Wonder.
OK. I'm a little overwhelmed. We actually get to see Stevie Wonder and Neil Young, Jack White, Foo Fighters, City and Colour, Andrew Bird, Reggie Watts, and the Kills...under the San Francisco sky! Talk about a dream coming true.

I was reading the latest edition of Rolling Stone magazine last night when I came across an ad for a huge concert being held in San Francisco in August. And lone behold with names like Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Jack White, Foo Fighters, Nora Jones, Metallica and Skrillex also performing is South Africa's Die Antword. Now out of all the brilliant Artists and Band's that South Africa has produced over the years who would ever of thought that a band like Die Antword would be making waves world wide. There must be some truth in their song "I Fink U Freeky and I Like U A Lot"! Honestly, what is this world coming to?
