Last year, SFoodie blogger Tamara Palmer braved the fog and mobs of rock dudes in calf-hugging black jeans at Outside Lands pretty much just to eat. "It was refreshing to have so many truly good edible distractions that we barely cared which band played on which stage at what time," Palmer recalled last month, in a preview of the eats assembled for this weekend's music jam.

Today at All Shook Down, our sister music blog, Emily Savage recaps the food offerings assembled by festival producer Another Planet Entertainment, for the fest, Aug. 14-15. No BBQ turkey legs, no funnel cakes. "Instead of hiring traditional street-food vendors, the organizers have gone to (or been approached by) actual brick-and-mortar restaurants, imploring chefs to truncate their menu into a smaller, less expensive hand-friendly meal," Savage writes.

Of the more than 30 food and wine slingers, restaurant vendors include Maverick (pulled-pork sandwiches), Pacific Catch (sweet potato fries), Ti Couz (savory crêpes), Anchor and Hope (barbecued oysters), and Asqew Grill (cilantro-lime chicken skewers). Look for Pica Pica and Split Pea Seduction, too.

Vendors more familiar with mobile vending include Namu and Mission Minis. Check the final Taste of the Bay food vendor list at the Outside Lands event website ― scroll through the providers of liquid libations gathered together at the festival's Vine Lands wine tent, too. Still need a ticket? Find those, too, at the Outside Lands site.

  • 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.'"
