Tenacious D the Sunday Night Headliner for Outside Lands

Tenacious D have been announced as the Sunday night replacement act for the Outside Lands festival.

The final spot for the August 30 concert was supposed to go to the Beastie Boys--but, as many of you'll recall, that group had to cancel all shows when Adam "MCA" Yauch was diagnosed with cancer a couple weeks back. (According to Rolling Stone, MCA has since undergone surgery, and is now recooperating at home.)

On an Outside Lands conference call this afternoon, Jack Black warned that dogs might be barking all day Sunday because canines know when there's a "gigantic rock storm coming."

What do you guys think? How do these replacement headliners hold up?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
