BottleRock in Napa. I want to go there.

I can't remember where I first saw it, but this BottleRock festival scheduled for May in Napa is like a gift from the gods, and it has me pining away to go, go go. Whoever thought, "Oh, hey, how about we stage a big awesome Lollapalooza for grownups in wine country?" was basically a genuis. The headliners are the Black Keys who I first fell in love with at Lolla maybe five years ago while sipping that cold minty iced tea they always serve at the festival to try to keep the sweaty, stoned 19 year olds from passing out in the slop from dehydration. This Napa idea? SO. MUCH. BETTER. Also there's Joan Jett, Alabama Shakes, the Black Crowes, Kings of Leon, Jane's Addiction...and foie, if you're into that.
