Fans of San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, scheduled Aug. 14-15 at Golden Gate Park, know that the party is hardly over when the headliner finishes that last encore. In fact, it’s only the beginning of nighttime fun.
That’s because festival producers Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly Productions and Starr Hill Presents’ regard for their customers’ entertainment choices doesn’t stop at the exit gates. Instead, they’ve lined up plenty of top-flight talent in some of San Francisco’s choicest clubs for those post-Outlands evenings.
With San Francisco nightspots like the Mezzanine, The Independent, Mighty and Rickshaw Stop presenting talent like Levon Helm Band, Jimmy Cliff and Tokyo Police Club, we’re reminded that the old “snooze you lose” adage could have been inspired by Outside Lands’ nighttime agenda.
