Fruit Bats, J. Mascis, Sonny and the Sunsets Play at Huichica Festival in Sonoma Next Weekend

Posted By on Thu, May 26, 2011 at 5:00 PM


In this weeks issue of SF Weekly, we ran a story about music festivals in Northern California, but unfortunately, there was (hopefully no more than) one glaring omission: the second annual Huichica Music Festival, which takes place on Saturday, June 4th at Gundlach Bundschu Winery in Sonoma.

The winery's owner, Jeff Bundschu, joins forces with Eric Johnson of the Fruit Bats to put on the festival, which features wine from the winery (duh) and food from local artisan foodies Mike the Bejker, the Street Eatz food truck, and Reciprocity Foods.

Oh, and there's music too. Headlining (obviously) are the Fruit Bats, with supporting acts J Mascis, Sonny and the Sunsets, Richard Swift, These United States, and more.

Find out more about the festival here, and think about getting your tickets before you make the drive up to Sonoma, since it's looking likely that it'll sell out. But, luckily, for those that miss it, always-cool Daytrotter is gonna be there to film and record.

Oh, and our collective apologies for missing it in the earlier article. To make it up to you, here's a video from Sonny and the Sunsets' new album, Hit After Hit, which has featured heavily in our "it's a nice day, isn't it?" playlist rotation.

  • 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.'"
