Behind the Curtain: The Marías at Outside Lands 2019
We spent two days with The Marías behind the scenes of the annual San Francisco festival.
We recently followed The Marías, an entrancing Los Angeles–based band who are part rock, part dream pop, and part psychedelic-soul, to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco for their pre-fest “Outside Lands Night Show” performance, and then to their show the next day at Outside Lands 2019.
Led by frontwoman María—who sings in both Spanish and English—the quintet ate oysters at Pacific Catch, caught up with friends and family backstage, played with a dog they insisted was named Cheeto, and engaged in a mysterious tai chi–inspired pre-show ritual. Check out the BTS photos below, with captions by the band.
