Sounds Like San Diego: August 26

Gilbert Castellanos Jazz Jam, Badabing and others play around town Wednesday

There are plenty of shows at fun bars to whet your whistle this Wednesday night, but one in particular is very special. For nearly three years on just about every Wednesday, a grouping of jazz musicians would gather at Seven Grand with Gilbert Castellanos at the helm of the Jazz Jam. Along with open jams, there were collaborrations with local bands, and you never knew what you were going to get but would always leave with a smile on your face. Wednesday is the final night this will take place at Seven Grand, and while we'll still have Mr. Castellanos at various venues in San Diego, this is one weekly gathering that will surely be missed, so drop by and bid farewell. Around town, the Soaks headline the Whistle Stop for another Commune Wednesday, while Badabing rocks the Casbah, and Le Ra leads the pack at the Office.
