    Can you picture THIS? :D :sing: :flirt: :cool: :halo:

    Fans have been waiting forty years for a live festival performance of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem and it's finally happening Sunday August 7, 2016 at Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco.

    The Electric Mayhem's performance is scheduled to begin at 4 PM PST (7 PM EST, 6 PM CST, 5 PM MST). Here's how to watch on-line.

    (1) Download the Go90 app from the Apple Store or Google Play for the highest-quality stream.

    (2) Watch on the Outside Lands Website on Channel 1 at sfoutsidelands.com.

    (3) Watch an alternate stream via AOL available at aol.com.

    Following five consecutive sold out years, Outside Lands is officially among the rare festivals anywhere in the world to sell out immediately upon announcement and ticket release.

    Watch the show live and let us know your thoughts on this anticipated appearance.

    Update: If you missed the show, you can watch the entire Electric Mayhem set here. Also watch an interview with Floyd and Animal here.

    I caught some of it. Thanks JimandFrank. Fantastic finale, with the Choir and lead light design backdrop. If only the puppeteers could of been less visible. Fantastic show!!!

    Loved this!!! And loved i could watch from the UK!
    Was great to see them being performed as full bodies.. A credit to the performers.

    Also loved the reference to Bill Barrettas wife Christina while the band were guessing who the song Cecellia was going to be dedicated to :)

    This was awesome! It was great that most of the songs they sung were songs that Muppets haven't sung before.

    Loved it! The music choices were perfect and the videos they showed in-between songs were really funny. Hopefully they'll do more live shows.

    Okay, now that I've gotten my thoughts together.

    Oh man, the puppetry for this event was phenomenal! Everything was so beautifully planned - every guitar strum, every foot tap - I saw Muppets walk - with their lower half clearly visible!

    Good thinking throwing in breaks for the puppeteers, and adding in some pre-recorded videos.

    This marks - what, the second time Lips' name has been mentioned by another character?

    Incidentally, Lips is the one I really couldn't take my eyes off. Again, amazing puppetry.

    Also loved the reference to the guys' wives!

    The video art design was quite nice.

    And of course, the music. Nice that they covered songs the Muppets haven't done before.

    That was amazing! I finally know what it's like to see your favorite band on the stage for the first time. The puppeteering was amazing, it was just like the Muppets were real. The songs were great and the videos in between were pretty funny as well. I don't know why they've never done this kind of thing before, but I hope they do it again soon.

    Thank you so very very much to Muppet Central for sending out the e-mail that this was coming. I absolutely loved seeing this, it was a dream come true and it lived up to the dream!! I was smiling ear to ear by the time it ended.

    First I have to trim off the excess footage in a video editor, render it, then upload it. (To Youtube) Might take a bit.
