Sounds Like San Diego: June 13


Oh, man, Saturday is a doozy in San Diego. Just a few years ago, everyone was lamenting the loss of Street Scene and how someone should bring it back. Sadly, that hasn't happened, but what did happen is that a lot of different people and entities adopted a DIY attitude and made their own festivals happen. I'm not gonna lie, reviews of the original Oysterfest weren't exactly glowing, but after a few years, the organizers are on point, got the right people involved to handle music booking and staffing, and others to align all the concessions and oyster chefs for what is certain to be an incredible day on the San Diego Waterfront. Thievery Corporation headline the whole shebang, but with a solid lineup of performers all day long -- including Little Hurricane, who haven't played their hometown in ages -- this is going to be a great festival. Around town, another budding festival, Oasis at Silo, takes place at Maker's Quarter. By night, if you still have an itch for music, the Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser plays at Casbah, Ceremony is at Legends Records, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band is at the Belly Up.
