Ranger Dave hints at The Outside Lands 2011 Line Up

Tomorrow morning the 2011 Outside Lands Line up will be revealed. Over the weekend mascot Ranger Dave tweeted several dozen hints as to who will be playing the 2011 festival August 12-14 in Golden Gate Park. We’ve got some ideas in parentheses after the clue . Can you decipher any of his clues?

Rumor has it that Cut Copy and The Decemberists will be playing, as they have SOCAL dates announced in the days before and after Outside Lands.
