Fuck Outside Lands — Bang The Drum is FREE This Weekend

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

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.

Bang The Drum featuring performances from Naughty By Nature, Blackalicious, Hieroglyphics and others
Peacock Meadow [Golden Gate Park]

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
