Aug. 30: Middle Ranch Series at C. Donatiello Winery

If you like hanging out in beautiful vineyards, mingling with beautiful people and grooving out to that beautiful brand of indie-pop that makes you bob your head merrily and feel pretty darn good about life, you’ll want to attend C. Donatiello Winery’s Live from Middle Ranch Series. This weekend hosts the likes of Sara Bareilles, Ian Ball, Buddy, Holly Conlan and others. Headliner Bareilles is the Eureka native who scored massive popularity with the sassy piano-driven melody of “Love Song.” She falls into that pleasant musical subgenre of fresh-faced female singers who play their own instruments and write their own songs. No rehab histrionics, no auto tuner, no overproduction—just catchy tunes perfect for intimate mix tapes and romantic comedy soundtracks. Hear Bareilles with Ball, the frontman of the Britpop band Gomez, Buddy, an L.A.-based indie pop project, and Conlan, a piano-playing singer-songwriter, on Sunday, Aug. 30, at C. Donatiello Winery. 4035 Westside Road, Healdsburg. 1pm-4pm. Free; buy some wine already. 707.497.3376.Daniel Hirsh
