So I’ll be outright — if you’re going to Outside Lands, you wasted your money. When the Beastie Boys were replaced with Tenacious D, I could feel a value in ticket price go way down. No offense to any of you who are a fan of the D, but they really couldn’t find a better headliner? Really? I mean, at least if they would have gotten Madonna, you would have gotten your money’s worth.
But I digress. There is another huge party happening in Golden Gate Park this weekend — and its FREE. YES, FREE. While all those dumbasses at Outside Lands are shelling out $15 for beers, you can be dancing your ass off to Naughty By Nature. Read that sentence again. Thought so. It’s also a celebration of Kevvy Kev’s Bang The Drum broadcast, one of the longest running hip-hop radio shows in the country. Badass.
Stuart thought I should mention that Naughty by Nature’s song “Ghetto Bastard” was the first rap song he ever loved, and that friends of the site Rec League (Richie Cunning’s crew) will also be performing. But whatever, Stuart’s a wanker.
