California native Matt Costa might skip his breakfast, but he doesn’t need cereal to get up in the morning—he thrives on imagination. Finding inspiration everywhere, from his treasured belongings on a shelf to an agave plant that saved his life after a drunken fall from a balcony, it’s no wonder he’s already put out five independent releases. His captivating storytelling comes out in his music; Costa has become such a prolific songwriter that his girlfriend once resorted to burying his tape recorders in the backyard to keep him in town. Flip to the b-side and discover a whole new side of talent on Saturday, Aug. 18, at Long Meadow Ranch Winery. 738 Main St., St. Helena. 4pm. $25—$35. 707.963.4555.
