Outside Lands 2013: Photos + Recap - Day One

Friday’s lineup at Outside Lands featured performances from Band of Horses, Rhye and The National, but capping off the day was headliner Paul McCartney. McCartney walked out to a crowd of thousands wearing a black trench coat that was abruptly taken off exposing a white button down shirt. A line of guitars backed him followed by his band. As fans screamed, he remained composed and charming. McCartney is actually 71, but doesn’t look a day over 50. He was witty, joking in between songs about his time spent in communist Russia. (Of course, “Back in the U.S.S.R.” was played right...

Photos: How The Beatles Rocked The Kremlin
Moscow, Red Square, May 24, 2003. As the sun slides behind the Kremlin, a hundred thousand people pack into Red Square, into the heart of Russia. The fairy-tale domes of Saint Basil’s cathedral and the ancient red walls of the Kremlin seem to be on fire. The vast crowd roars — and many weep — as a familiar figure strikes the first chords. “Back in the U.S.S.R.” rolls out across the square — and Paul McCartney is here at last to sing it.

“People cried rivers and waterfalls of tears,” says Artemy Troitsky, Russia’s celebrity rock guru. “It was like something that sums up your whole life.” “Moscow girls make me sing and shout,” sings McCartney, and the crowd sings back, laughing, crying, hugging, dancing to an anthem that had once put some of them in jail, lost them their jobs and their education, turned them into outcasts.

There is a moment right near the beginning of Weezer's umpteenth album Hurley when Rivers Cuomo declares: "I'm not kidding anymore." It's a fairly loaded statement, considering he's spent much of the past decade doing what could charitably be described as "joking around," releasing a string of albums each a little more confounding (and a little less satisfying) than the last.

To wit: The last truly solid Weezer album (the so-called Green one) was released nearly four months before 9/11, and since then, Cuomo and company have gone progressively further off the rails. Maladroit featured just two songs that cracked the three-minute mark, and even then it felt too long and convoluted (mostly because Cuomo spends a portion of it taking thinly veiled jabs at his fanbase

Last time around, Weezer went all in on the modern pop game, larding tracks on 2009's Raditude with guest spots from Lil Wayne and production and writing help from the All-American Rejects, Dr. Luke and Butch Walker. But for their upcoming (September 14) debut for punk stalwart label Epitaph Records, Hurley (alas, not Heavy Mental), Rivers Cuomo and company are dialing things all the way back to the 1960s.

According to Rolling Stone magazine, the band's eighth studio album is nearly finished and it will have a much different sound than their previous effort.
