BottleRock Napa Valley
, the three-day festival that takes over the city of Napa every Memorial Day weekend (this year it runs Friday, May 29 through Saturday, May 31) announced its lineup this morning, and it is long.

Initial impressions: If you thought last year was a '90s nostalgia-fest (Third Eye Blind, Smashmouth, The Spin Doctors), this year's contains some of the same (No Doubt, Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy), along with a healthy dose of bands whose target market audience is under the age of 35 (Foster the People, Passion Pit, Courtney Barnett), and then maybe a larger spoonful of funk, soul, and jam bands aimed at...well, that shit is ageless. 

We're definitely stoked to see so many locals included: Michael Franti with Spearhead, The Frail, Finish Ticket, Afrolicious, Fritz Montana, The Brothers Comatose, Con Brio, The Deadlies, grass child, The Trims, Eagle Wolf Snake, and others all call the Bay home. 

Tickets are now on sale for festival packages, starting at $235 for a general admission three-day pass. VIP passes go for $575, while the perfectly reasonable "limited availability" Platinum option will cost interested parties $2,500 or $3,000 for a lounge that includes "on-site concierge service and complimentary fine wines and food throughout the weekend...exclusive daily gourmet tasting menus prepared by celebrity Napa Valley chefs, premium cocktails, and rare Napa Valley wines selected and served by some of the top sommeliers in the world." Single-day tickets will be available for the plebians purchase soon. 

Anyway! Here's the whole list that was released today. Who are you excited to see?

  • 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.'"
