​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's Aqualung 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.

Other than the very first show of the season -- the Moody Blues on May 27 -- all of these tickets go onsale this Monday, May 9. Scope the full lineup here

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
