  • Lorde and Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff performed a stripped-back version of Paul Simon's 1972 hit "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard" on Sunday (August 13th) at San Francisco's Outside Lands Festival. The pair sat on the edge of the stage as Antonoff strummed the tune on an acoustic guitar. Antonoff -- who co-produced 10 out of 11 tracks on Lorde's new LP, Melodrama -- closed the performance by adjusting the chorus, singing, "Me and Ella in Golden Gate Park" in reference to Lorde's real name and the festival locale.
