On the 16th – 18th of September, the second annual KAABOO festival was held at the fair grounds in Del Mar, California. I did photography for the festival. Click here or the image below to see the photos and videos I took.
Here is the video:
You can have a hell of a lot of fun if you happened to be at the The Downtown Cafe in El Cajon this evening between 7-10pm because you were treated to one of San Diego’s famous bands called The Farmers (formerly The Beat Farmers). They rocked out with a mixture of tunes from their long career and entertained everyone from toddlers barley old enough to walk to the grandparents of those same kids!
The outside patio area where The Farmers performed was packed with fans (sporting their Farmers t-shirts) and even family of the band. Lead singer Corbin Turner told me before they played that they really enjoy playing at The Downtown Cafe because all ages can come enjoy the band. If was evident from all the dancing and smiles tonight that everyone there did enjoy the band and had a blast.
The Downtown Cafe has a wide range of good food from burgers, fajita’s, BBQ and more at reasonable prices. It features a very large outside patio area that is perfect for a warm summer evening. It has a very large indoor restaurant and bar too. While I wished the service was a bit better (faster and more attentive) the great food and entertainment made up for it. They feature music Thursday thru Saturday nights.
At the beginning of this month, money grubbing Clear Channel decided to not renew the contract of Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw show which has been one if not the most popular morning show here in San Diego for over 20 years. The show was currently being hosted by radio station KGB 101.5. My personal view is that this is the best morning show I have ever heard in the country, including syndicated shows, because it was truly funny and didn’t insult my intelligence.
I have written KGB and will soon write Clear Channel and I advise all DSC fans to do the same. I also invite you to join my boycott of all Clear Channel stations in San Diego (list below)… actually I’m not listening to radio at all since most of it totally sucks besides this show.
