Outside Lands festival still has your lost-and-found junk

  • Don't feel bad, Sara of Tegan and Sara probably left behind her sunglasses, too.

Hey, did you go to the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival two weeks ago? Come pick up your junk.

Festival organizers sounded the alarm Thursday, reminding attendees that yes, you really did leave your fixie bike with the "legalize it!" sticker outside the Cheeselands tent, and no, they're not keeping it until next year.

It turns out that when 200,000 music fans enter Golden Gate Park to see Kanye West, The Killers or Big Freedia, not all of their stuff exits with them. The festival made items available for pickup at the Bill Graham Civic Center, but a phone call Thursday confirmed the stragglers had been relocated elsewhere.

In 2013, the festival set up a website for unclaimed items with pictures of dozens of backpacks and credit cards, at least one ID card for the Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic, and no fewer than three German passports (did Trio do a surprise reunion set?). No such effort is expected this year.

Anybody who suddenly realizes they haven't seen their keys since the Macklemore show can send an email to lostandfound@sfoutsidelands.com.

Bare-naked bummer

Reality TV contestant Jessie Nizewitz knew she'd be flashing blurred-out flesh on "Dating Naked," but she thought the nudity would be more like TV's "The Bachelor" than Hustler magazine.

Now, according to the New York Post, she's suing VH1 for $10 million after the channel accidentally aired non-blurred footage of her most blur-worthy parts as she was executing a wrestling move on her TV date.

"My grandma saw it," Nizewitz complained, adding that the unexpected exposure cost her a "budding relationship" offscreen with a real catch. "He was employed, Jewish, in his 30s and that's pretty much ideal."
