They are playing Outside Lands festival in San Francisco, August 12-14. I don't know which night they are headlining. Also headlining Muse and Phish. I really like the lineup and it's San Francisco.

Have fun, Scumbo.

I cannot wait until July 30.

Also, the headlining act on that bill is pretty good.

I'll be there tonight too, u2pm. While I'm interested to see Local Natives, I woulda killed for Okkervil River or The National. Ahh well, it still should be a sweet show tonight!

Had I realized this, I would have sent you spoiler texts all night Saturday.

Scumby's impending adventure reminded me I've got less than a month until they mosey down here. All that's left to do is find out who the hell the Suburbs are and why everyone likes their album Arcade Fire so much.

Enjoy the show, Uncle T-Bag.

My ears still hurt. I was so psyched from the show that I couldn't fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning, so I called in "sick" from work today. To say I had fun would be an understatement. Local Natives were great, Arcade Fire were even better. The sound mix on the first few songs sucked ass, but they luckily fixed it, and the rest of the show was phenomenal. I danced and sang a lot.

Apparently Win's grandpa lived in Utah for a long time, and he used to visit a lot, which was news to me. They also apparently had a bunch of family and friends at the show, so apparently they still have some sort of connection. We also got mentions of Jimmer, which was humorous.

This was the setlist.

Month of May
Rebellion (Lies)
Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
City With No Children
Rococo
Intervention
The Suburbs
The Suburbs (Continued)
Suburban War (Win forgot lyrics and pretty much just stood there and laughed through the entire second verse)
No Cars Go
Haïti
Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
We Used to Wait
Wake Up

Encore:
Ready to Start
Keep the Car Running
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

I thought so, too, at first, but the segue into We Used to Wait was actually quite wonderful. Not as outrageously awesome as Power Out/Rebellion but I didn't feel cheated or anything.
