Radiohead Serenades Golden Gate Park

With a damp, chilly mist settling onto the shoulders of some 60,000 patrons in Golden Gate Park, the ebullient grin on bassist Colin Greenwood's face summed it up: This Radiohead performance would be difficult to forget. For a band that's played to many massive crowds over the years, there was clearly still something special about being pioneers, in this case as the first band to ever play past dark in this historic park. Of course, it's not always easy to be first, something Radiohead discovered in the midst of OK Computer's "Airbag," when the sound system stuttered to a sudden halt, while an oblivious band -- engrossed in their set, plugged into in-ear monitors -- played on.

Beck or The Black Keys?

The city is abuzz with Outside Lands talk.  So level with us, what time are you sneaking out of work today?  And on a scale of 1-10, how much are able to concentrate right now?  We're coming in at about a 3.

Who are you most excited to see this weekend?  There's Radiohead, obviously, but the really revealing question is this: who are you going to see at 7:00?  Beck or The Black Keys?  Quite the conflict.
