Sun, Sept 6, Brian Setzer
Ironstone Amphitheatre, 7 p.m., $45-$225
Brian Setzer is one of those timeless dudes. Yeah, the kinda guy that despite being two-and-a-half times my senior still manages to make me swoon like a cat in heat on ladies’ night at the animal shelter. Setzer is scheduled to co-headline with Chris Isaak, a man with notably much less swagger and probably more VH1 countdown appearances than anyone can shake a Gretsch at, but who’s counting? Oh yeah, I am. But what I do know is this: Brian and Co. will make an appearance and they’re probably going to “rock this vineyard”—so eat, drink and be merry; I hear swing goes great with a shiraz. 1894 Six Mile Road in Murphys; www.briansetzer.com.
