The music you’re hearing now is by a group named Heartwatch. You may have heard this San Francisco band when they were called The Tropics.

The musicians currently known as Heartwatch are performing Saturday (08.08). They're part of this year’s Outside Lands Music Festival in Golden Gate Park. Yes, it’s sold out -- but the sounds definitely spill beyond the confines of the fenced-off festival, so you might still be able to hear them.

The Bay Area indie-pop duo you’re hearing now is called Midi Matilda. They haven’t taken the usual approach of playing live to reach an audience – they prefer making videos. And it works: now their live shows regularly sell out. 

Midi Matilda is one of scores of bands performing in Golden Gate Park this weekend as part of this year’s Outside Lands Festival. Look for them on Friday, August 9th around 7:00pm.
