Coachella has predicated itself on being the first major U.S. music festival to drop its lineup at the start of the new year for quite a while, and now that the three-day, two-weekend festival in the desert has booked Rage Against the Machine, Travis Scott and Frank Ocean to headline its 2020 edition, it’s time to turn our attention north as BottleRock regularly reveals its own roster around this time too.

Because if you’re a fan of rock ‘n’ roll, then the Napa Valley event might be right up your alley.

Celebrating its eighth year this Memorial Day weekend, BottleRock in 2020 will be led by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Matthews Band and Stevie Nicks after putting Imagine Dragons, Neil Young and Mumford & Sons atop the bill a year ago. Of course, those are just your headliners.

The undercard, meanwhile, boasts plenty of big names as well, including Miley Cyrus, Khalid, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals, Zedd, Brandi Carlile, The Avett Brothers, Janelle Monáe, Maggie Rogers, Blondie, Of Monsters and Men, Maren Morris, Empire of the Sun, Foals, Tegan and Sara, Jimmy Eat World, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Local Natives and many more.

As usual, attendees will also able to witness live cooking demonstrations between a variety of celebrity chefs, musicians and athletes at the fest’s beloved Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage.

Tickets go on sale this Tuesday, January 7th at 10 a.m. PT here and start at $349 for a three-day GA pass while VIP goes for $849 (before prices increase). But if you really want to splurge this year, there’s always the three-day skydeck pass for a measly $1,599 or the platinum for $4,350.

The Wood Brothers leave Fillmore crowd craving for more

Boy, do I love The Fillmore.

“Best venue in the Bay” debates aside, I feel The Fillmore has a special presence, a certain energy that is the product of its rich musical history. Moreover, I truly feel that every musician who takes the stage under those beautiful lights and chandeliers channels their energy into every note they strike. At least that was the case when The Wood Brothers graced the stage last Friday night.

The Wood Brothers

Since 2006, brothers Chris and Oliver Wood have been releasing carefully-crafted Americana albums under the moniker “The Wood Brothers”. They have continued their success more recently, executing their recorded work beautifully with the addition of multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix. This band’s talents certainly extend beyond the studio. Most impressive, though, is the four-piece’s ability to translate its often-mellow sounds into an enthusiastic, crowd-pleasing performance that certainly left the audience at The Fillmore craving for more.

A particular highlight of the evening was seeing Chris and Oliver bring Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz from opening act Mandolin Orange on stage to help cover Tom Petty’s “You Don’t Know How It Feels”, which was an instant hit with the crowd.
