The B-52’s & Blondie

Here comes a bikini whale! Imagine 1978 at NYC punk club Max’s Kansas City, hearing party band the B-52’s’ first single, the wacktastic “Rock Lobster.” Now imagine going back a few nights later to see the sensational Blondie, whose amalgam of punk, rock and proto-rap elevated the definition of new wave. So maybe you missed those defining moments in musical history (and Blondie’s performance at Bumbershoot ’06)? You can celebrate summer with both groups at the gorgeous Woodinville winery this weekend. The B-52’s’s Kate Pierson has left her Catskills love shacks (a cabin-and-airstream hotel) to rock out in our equally beautiful NW. Toast your good luck with a glass of the winery’s raspberry-licious dry Rose, and commence the clambake. RACHEL SHIMP
