In the aftermath of the festival, desperate searches for love (and IDs).
Tens of thousands of concertgoers, kegs of beer, and a magical setting in foggy San Francisco: Outside Lands is all about the romance. A quick look at local Craigslist ads paints a vivid picture:
Hot Tall Guy with a Fade at Ouside Lands: "Heyyyyyyyyyy, boy, heyyyyyy. I'm some girl with lipstick and short white hair. You're some hot guy who should message me. Mmmmmmmmmm yo."
Outside Lands, Sunday, I'm 46: "It was during Flaming Lips I believe (not sure, I was distracted...) Those eyes, that smile, that dancing...wanted to talk more. Any chance we can?"
BAMBI AT OUTSIDE LANDS: "You ran off with my military ID!!! I need it back!!! There are a number of things I cannot do without it and I cannot get that one replaced."
Mac n Cheese Outside Lands (Sunday): "I'm usually wary of cute girls, but you turned out to be pretty cool. I'm sad we couldn't talk more. Hmu, yeah? I'd like to hear more about all that grant writing and financial procurement."
Adorable New Zealand Guy at Outside Lands: "We met at the stage where Tiesto played, you had on a fisherman's hat and I tied your sweater around your waist. You bought me a Sierra Nevada and we took a shot of peach Ciroc together...walked over to see the Gold Pandas (thought you were saying dull pandas) and danced the entire set. You and your friend left to see the Killers and I went to find my friends at Tiesto...couldn't stop thinking about you today. - The girl in the flower tights."
Sam from Outside Lands: "Hey sexy girl get back to me. I poured your beer for you all weekend and left without your number. I don't want to wait till Coachella to see you. I want to come back up. Hope you see this longshot...Scott."
Outside Lands - Death Cab for Cutie: "Hi. I was a red head in blue running shorts and a cat shirt in the crowd and made eye contact, danced, and had you take photos for me. You were with your friends and they pushed you to talk to me. Oh and I just remembered when I ran away I screamed, 'You're cute.' You were clean cut with dark brown hair and mesmerizing eyes. Doubt this will work but hey why not..."
Outside Lands - Met at Killers/Tiesto: "You were super cool girl I met at Killers, we smoked a little and then danced before deciding to check out Tiesto, but I lost you at the back speaker at Twin Peaks stage, shortly after we got there. Well if you see this (Gigi) hit me up. I'd love to buy you a drink!"
