“The Weight” f. Win Butler (Video)

    The annual Outside Lands festival took place in San Francisco this past weekend, with Muse, Phish, the Black Keys and Arcade Fire among the biggest bands taking part. Win Butler from the latter surfaced during Mavis Staples’ set prior to his band’s headline set, to help her perform a version of the Band’s “The Weight.” This is fast becoming a festival tradition this year, with Staples apparently able to command the attention of indie rock glitterati to help her out with the song. This is an audience-shot video of the collaboration, but the quality isn’t bad, and the crowd was clearly ecstatic at seeing Butler make this surprise appearance. Check it out above.
