The Huichica Music Festival has been descending on Sonoma since 2010, pairing folk, psychedelic, and surf rock acts with food and wine from the Gundlach Bundschu winery, which doubles as the festival’s location.
Huichica (wa-CHEE-ka) was born of a collaboration between Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats, (((folkYEAH!))), and Gundlach Bundschu. Accordingly, Fruit Bats will be one of the show closers on Saturday. This year’s acts also include notable acts like Jonathan Richman (who’s coming off some recent shows in SF), Vetiver, King Tuff, Rodrigo Amarante, Sonny Smith (of Sonny & The Sunsets fame), White Fence, and plenty of other San Francisco rock and psych legends like the Fresh & Onlys and Wooden Shjips. Modern-day guitar wunderkind Steve Gunn, Greta Morgan’s Springtime Carnivore, and the experimentalist Bitchin Bajas broaden the stylistic palette, along with over a dozen others. For a festival that touts its small size and intimate nature, there’s a whole lot of talent here.
