Fans of the band Chic
will be excited to know that the legendary purveyors of “Good Times” and “Le Freak” are a last-minute addition to this weekend's Outside Lands Festival.
Meanwhile, fans of music in general will also be gladdened by today’s announcement that you'll be able to watch a number of the performances live
on two Ustream
channels this Friday through Sunday.
Performers whose sets will be streamed include Phoenix, Yeasayer, Jurassic 5, Nine Inch Nails, Gary Clark Jr., Smith Westerns, Hall & Oates, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pretty Lights, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Kaskade, Vampire Weekend, The National, Band of Horses, Fishbone, Grizzly Bear, The Head and The Heart, Dawes
and, of course, Chic
The one downside is that D’Angelo
had to drop out of the festival due to medical concerns. Here’s to a speedy recovery and, in the meantime, a clip from a killer performance by Chic at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
