Want to go see the San Diego Banjo Band or the Mariachi Chula Vista for free? The Union-Tribune has its annual listing of free summer concerts in today’s paper and you can find those acts and more.
Some interesting stuff there for sure. I think I’ll head to Del Mar for the Devo show on Aug. 30, even though it’s not quite “free” because you have to pay admission for horse racing, and for parking unless you want to walk a long way to/from your car. I saw The Cult play after racing at Del Mar last year and that was fun, even if I didn’t cash any winning tickets on the ponies that day.
No word on whether “Disco Band” playing tonight in Santee is the actual name of an act or just a description. If you go see them, please let us know. I also don’t know whether “8oz All Stars” booked for Aug. 28 in Santee is a typo that’s actually supposed to be ’80s All Stars, or if there is an act that pays homage to things that come in 8-ounce packages. Hmmm.
