Tickets go on sale this Saturday for Chateau Ste. Michelle's outdoor summer concert series. To this day, that sloping lawn outside the Woodinville winery—where we're practically expected to drink really nice reds or dance and eat cheese at the same time—is one of my favorite music venues in the region. Everyone should see a show there at least once, and if you do, make it David Byrne and St. Vincent's funky duet in July.
