Folkie pop band Of Monsters and Men plays an intimate set at the Cal Academy's NightLife. After stomping out their competition at Músiktilraunir (a yearly battle of the bands in their native Iceland) the band has made waves on the world stage.
Plus, nosh your way through a special edition of Off the Grid on the Music Concourse, see yourself transformed into a cartoon monster, and learn about gila monsters from an Academy scientist. Additional music by Britt Govea, founder of (((folkYEAH!))). Music presented by Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival.
Tickets for “Outside Lands NightLife” (8/9/2012) are now sold out, but you can still purchase tickets on Stubhub. There will be no tickets available for sale at the door.
Opening band PAPA describes their sound as “American soul music with a punk rock mentality.”
