Sounds Like San Diego: June 1

There are always a lot of street fairs and neighborhood tastings and music festivals in San Diego this time of year, but when you look at the really good ones, they generally have a whole community organization or neighborhood business association behind them. There are few people who have the vision and initiative to make something happen in true DIY fashion, but as Art Around Adams marks its 10th annual event on Saturday at various venues in Kensington and Normal Heights, it all comes back to Adam Rosen, who has been helping build the event to what it is today. If you weren't able to attend our SoundDiego live party, Art Around Adams provides another chance to catch Okapi Sun as well as many other San Diego favorites. Follow the day with solid choices at the Casbah, the Che Cafe or Winston's.
