Since when is late August so overwhelming? Sneaker Pimps and Clipse will pack heads in at Mighty Saturday, while New York's Anamanaguchi wields wicked Nintendo power at the DNA Lounge Sunday. Looming even larger -- Golden Gate Park's three-day megafestival Outside Lands and Sunday headliner M.I.A. The ferocious electro child of a Tamil Tiger, M.I.A.'s rise to global domination with "Paper Planes" paused for a pregnancy, but she's stalking stages and studios once again. Packing pan-Pacific beats and an infectious British-Sri Lankan patois -- the dark star will electrify the polo fields around dusk. Bring a scarf and pace yourself. Sunday, Aug. 30. $89.50.
