Live music concerts and alcohol and drug consumption often go hand in hand. It’s a challenge for recovering addicts that RockSoberFest aims to remedy. The event will feature a wide variety of local acts—from the surf-punk band The Happys to R&B and funk rockers Clean Sweep, to Americana singer-songwriters the Real Sarahs—all performing in an alcohol- and drug-free environment. There will also be Alcoholics Anonymous speakers and meditation and qi-qong classes. The festival will be held on June 1 and 2, noon–7 p.m., at the Mendocino County Fairgrounds in Boonville, with camping available. On June 2 at 5 p.m. the Happys will offer a free performance for youth. Admission for the rest of the festival is $10–$25; kids 10 and younger get in free. Two bucks from every ticket purchase goes to the Mendocino County Youth Project. See cleanandsobermusicfest.org for the complete lineup and to purchase tickets.
