Sounds Like San Diego: June 24

The beaches are busy from Encinitas to OB

There is so much going on today that all I can really say is take a breath, take your time and chill out, because you know traffic is gonna be crazy. The peninsula will be super busy, with the OB Street Fair and Chili Cookoff crowding downtown OB while the Summer Brew Fest occupies Liberty Station. Up at Moonlight Beach, the 13th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am surf competition and concert will be packed with music and surf fans from the early morning to mid-day. Once the afternoon hits, the incredible Peter Bradley Adams plays an early show at Soda Bar, DJ Claire gets down at Whistle Stop and Arts & Amps kicks in at Karl Strauss Brewery. Enter disco nap, and then hit Music Box for New Orleans party band Galactic, roadhouse rock & rollers Supersuckers at Casbah and "nomadic folk metal group" Tengger Cavalry return to Soda Bar.
