Outside Lands ’08 Video: The Walkmen

Watch the dour indie rockers performing new cuts "On the Water" and "New Country" in Golden Gate Park.

The weather at this weekend’s inaugural Outside Lands festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park may have been a tad chilly for a summer rockathon, but it suited the Walkmen’s dark-hued balladry and pale skin tones just fine. Check out video of the New York rockers performing “On the Water” and “New Country,” both off of their just-released full-length, You & Me, and be thankful frontman Hamilton Leithauser and crew — who spent the good part of the last year holed up in this studio — didn’t suffer an out-of-character sunburn.
