Washington D.C. indie rockers The Walkmen walked out on the Sutro stage at San Francisco’s Outside Lands music festival about 20 minutes late, but it did not deter them from turning in a solid set.
Having just released Heaven earlier this year, The Walkmen dropped a few notable tracks from that album, with frontman Hamilton Leithhouser’s soaring voice punctuating “We Can’t Be Beat,” “The Love You Love” and “Heartbreaker.”
They also touched on earlier favorites, such as “Angela Surf City” from 2010’s Lisbon and their screaming closer, “All Hands and the Cook” off their 2006 debut, A Hundred Miles Off.
The Walkmen also performed last weekend during Lollapalooza, and their vintage sound is obviously on point during their current tour in support of Heaven.

On a scorching hot Friday at this year’s Lollapalooza, Band of Skulls took the Google Play stage dressed all in black – probably not the best wardrobe choice for the 90-plus degree temperature.
The humidity didn’t faze the U.K. rockers, however, as they turned in a scorching 45-minute set with several tunes from their sophomore album, Sweet Sour.
Check out the trio performing “You’re Not Pretty But You Got It Going On” in the video below.
