Sorry for all the exclamations, but there's a lot of shows here we're going to make our parents take us to. The Mountain Winery
recently announced its schedule for 2011, and there are some most notable artists coming.
Among them, a five-day period this September in which both Kenny Loggins
and Hall and Oates
will play in the Bay Area. That's practically a yacht rock festival, kids -- and we've got our Topsiders at the ready.
The lineup is nominally stuff for an older crowd, but you like old music anyway, and there are some solid selections in that vein: Neko Case (July 1), Lucinda Williams (June 25), and Willie Nelson (Sept. 11). Let us also confess excitement for ZZ Top (Oct. 4), Billy Idol (Oct. 8), and Lyle Lovett (June 8).
The masochistic among you may note that Jethro Tull
40th Anniversary tour will be at the Winery on June 14.
But we are happy to point out that Huey Lewis and the News
are finally playing a Bay Area (if not S.F.!) show at the Mountain Winery on Aug. 13.
