Outside Lands 2019, day 1: The grass, the fashions, the Lil Wayne

Counting Crows, Twenty-One Pilots, The Seshen, Miya Folick, and cute looks galore at this year's festival.

I love more than almost anything riding the N Judah during Outside Lands time. That sounds like a nightmare to most people, but seeing everybody in their cute outfits getting ready to do that most human thing—lose themselves in music—in our beautiful city zaps me with positive energy. I almost broke down crying at someone’s Hello Kitty halter top and sequined Elton John glasses combo this morning, I’m serious. Anyway, ace photographer Jon Bauer was on the scene, he’ll be bring some of that energy to the set over the next few days with shots of the fest. Yes it’s corporate, yes it has a kooky Grasslands cannabis smoking/marketing area, and yes I can hear it from my house in Lower Haight. It’s still cute. —Marke B., Publisher and Arts Editor
