Reason to go: Djs and cocktails at the top of a mountain.
Reason not to go: This doesn’t even phase you on the sweetness scale because you are at The Bounce Festival which was last year hailed the best electronic music festival in all of the USA by www.musicfestivaljunkies.com.

Best Way to Rock Out with Your Socks Off
What: Concerts at Commons Beach – The Trey Stone Band and Drop Theory
Where: Commons Beach, Tahoe City
When: Sunday, June 23rd; 3pm – 7pm
Sunday kicks off the opening concert for this 12-week concert series at Commons Beach. All concerts will be from 4pm to 7pm, but the first and the last start early at 3pm. Oh yeah, and all are free. On top of that, you can bring your own food and booze, picnic style, making Sunday cheap date day. Or enjoy barbeque, sushi, ice cream, salads, beer, and more from local food and drink vendors.
Reason to go: Free live music on the beach. If you need more convincing, consider saying “yes” more.
Reason not to go: Your skin is a little too crispy from that 3-hour float on the Truckee River this afternoon.
