​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

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
