All Aboard the San Diego Blues Club Caravan

Tax season is nearly over -- what better way to celebrate than with the inaugural San Diego Blues Club Caravan?

I don’t have to tell you how stressful tax season is. Thankfully, it will be over on Monday and you can finally let loose. And what better way to blow off steam than on a tour of the best blues venues in San Diego?

On Tuesday from 7-11 p.m., KSDS (aka Jazz 88.3) inaugurates the San Diego Blues Club Caravan. The concept? For just $15 in advance or $20 the night of, you can hop on special buses that take you around the city to San Diego’s premier blues venues.

Admission to all of the clubs -- plus unlimited transportation - are both included in that very affordable ticket price. The buses will stop every 15 minutes, and you can stay as long, or as little, as you want at any of the venues before hopping on a bus and heading to the next one.

No need to feel obligated to eat or drink, either, as there are no club minimums! But, of course, feel free if you wanna.

Last summer, more than 800 people joined the inaugural San Diego Jazz Club Caravan, and this year is on pace to exceed those numbers. Call 619-388-3301 to make your reservation and save 25 percent off of the admission price. They'll send out your tickets with a route map at the end of the week. Click here for more information.
