Kings of Leon, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir's Furthur, the Strokes and My Morning Jacket are booked to headline San Francisco's scenic Golden Gate Park this August 14th and 15th at the third annual Outside Lands Festival.

The Strokes, who will be making just their second U.S. live appearance this summer following their Lollapalooza headlining slot, will also play the 14th along with My Morning Jacket, Gogol Bordello, Cat Power and Wolfmother.

Song Stories

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
