Jack White Pop-up At Outside Lands

August 14, 2012

There’s no better place to do a pop-up than San Francisco’s Outside Lands. It fits the spirit of the fest oh so well. Jack White surprised everyone with an afternoon set by the food trucks in the woods this weekend. Turns out, even Tom Morello showed up and did a surprise set there in the woods (cue Bon Iver music). I, sadly, had no idea this was going on and was off running around between other sets and completely missed the magical moment. Don’t hate me, but I also sacrificed Jack White’s set later that day to catch Santigold and Bloc Party (I’m a huge Bloc Party fan and it was well worth it). But if I could clone myself and hit up everything I regretfully had to miss, I would’ve hit up Jack White’s pop-up and his official set at Lands’ End on the Polo Fields. So, don’t feel too jealous watching these next couple of amazing clips. I didn’t get to see it live, either. Mr. White chose to use his all female backing band for the woods surprise show, and switched to his all male backing band for the official set. Here’s his performances of Hotel Yorba and Love Interruption. I wonder if these folks felt like they were incredibly lucky to have been grabbing some food truck bites right around this time! Note to my future clone: camp out in the woods. STAY there. Wait for musical surprises.

Pardon me, as I take a little hiatus and rush to get ready for day one of Outside Lands 2012. It’s been hectic prepping and getting things done beforehand, but it’s going to be another epic 3 day festival weekend in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park!!! You can listen to full sets LIVE online here:  It’ll be a marathon weekend for me. I started off with my own pre-show on Wednesday catching Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, which was incredible, and last night was a sold out Night Show at the Cal Academy where Of Monsters and Men killed it. Here goes the actual fest itself… Wish me luck!
