DR. FLOTSAM’S HELL BREW REVUE By Chris Murphy and OSL Editors

This is one of our favorite spots at Outsidelands. If you are a fan of Rockabilly, Psychobilly and just pure wired carnival street racing fun, then you will love this section of OSL. Fun bands, easy food, nearby drinks and a cool place to hang out. Plus, it is right in the middle of everything, between Sutro, Twin Peaks and Lands End.

Also, make sure you are following your favorite artists on Facebook or Twitter as last year, Head and the Heart and other bands surprise shows on this stage. Don’t miss out.

OSL Staff notes: Artist Mike Shine’s sinister revival of the Faustian legend of Mephistopheles, aptly located in the forest of McLaren Pass. For centuries, Dr. Flotsam and his clan of Carny Bastards have travelled the world hawking their mysterious Hell Brew elixir (which is rumored to taste much like moonshine), trading laughs and performances for souls and dreams. A celebration of art, kickass roots music, and creepy carnival entertainment, the stage show has been praised by Rolling Stone, Juxtapoz Magazine and the SF Chronicle.
