If you like Oakville cabernet with a side of electric guitar, here's a music festival that just might rock your world. Look for Bottle Rock Napa Valley to take over Napa wine country from May 10 - May 12, featuring 50 bands along with showing off the region's food and wine. While the official line-up has yet to be released from promoters, a story posted (and then quickly removed) by the Napa Valley Register listed such acts as Black Keys, Black Crowes, Primus, Jane's Addiction and the Shins. Other reports show Sacramento's own Cake and Ben Harper also joining the bill. Cake, in fact, lists a May 12 date for Napa's Bottle Rock festival on its web site.
We'll keep you posted of official word, but something big is definitely brewing in Napa, something like San Francisco's famed Outside Lands but among the vineyards instead of Golden Gate Park.
