Now that the Beastie Boys
have pulled out of Outside Lands, announcing the bad news
that MCA has to undergo treatment for cancer of the parotid (salivary) gland, the festival has turned to the public to ask what artists should be considered as replacements for Sunday night's big finale.
Outside Lands' Twitter feed
posed the question, "Ranger Dave is diligently working to replace the Beastie Boys. Any suggestions?" Got some ideas? Tweet back--and make sure they're not the same acts performing at Treasure Island.
If we had our fantasy picks? Hmmm...let's see... My Bloody Valentine? Blur? Wu-Tang Clan? De La Soul? What if hometown heroes Green Day saved the day? Whoever is chosen, the group has to be able to go on after M.I.A., not the easiest act to follow. (Let's just hope it's not Moby who slides into that slot).
