With the closure of the San Francisco Bay Bridge over Labor Day weekend, the Bay Area population is looking for fun ways to spend the long weekend that keep them away from The City. Napa has an amazing variety of shows, concerts, and general happenings through the weekend for any member of the family.

For anyone who enjoys a great laugh, this is a must see! This entry of the Complete (abridged) series will run through September 15th.
Lisa Marie Presley
After two Billboard Top 200 albums, Presley took a bit of a retreat from the music industry to recharge her creative batteries. Her most recent album, Storm & Grace, represents making peace with her past, coming to terms with her present, and returning to her roots. And those are some pretty good roots, given that two of her earliest musical memories are “obsessively listening to 45′s in her bedroom at Graceland” and “her dad catching her singing into a hairbrush in front of a mirror at the age of three.”
The Psychedelic Furs
Come see the band that inspired most of today’s Alternative Rock artists! On September 1st, you can experience the combination of poetic lyrics, innovative rhythms, and aggressive – punk driven – melodies that made The Psychedelic Furs famous in the 1980s.
After much success, multiple transitions in members, and a decade apart, the band got back together in 2000. The group continues to tour – and there are hints of a new album. But first, The Psychedelic Furs are performing at the Uptown Theater for a truly appreciative Napa audience.
