Road Trip: San Diego Street Scene, July 29 and 30
Driving to San Diego in horrid traffic is not my typical idea of a well-spent Friday afternoon. But the organizers of this year’s San Diego Street Scene have managed to put together an amazing and diverse lineup. So despite the road rage I’ll likely encounter, I’m trekking south on I-5 that weekend.
Tickets run $49.50 (single day) and $75 (two-days) and parking is $15. There will also be a limited number of VIP tickets available for $300/pair (which includes 2 laminates, free parking both days, VIP stage with secret bands, full bar with food and drink, VIP lounge with pool tables and games, upgraded bathrooms, and a VIP entrance. For the cleaner bathrooms alone, I recommend you go for the VIP treatment.
Check out this incredible lineup…
Friday: The White Stripes, The Killers, Social Distortion, Black Eyed Peas, Garbage, Flogging Molly, Louis XIV, Hot Hot Heat, Rise Against, Kasabian, Autolux, The (International) Noise Conspiracy: The Adolescents, Morningwood, Hard-Fi.

Saturday: Pixies, Snoop Dogg, Flaming Lips, 311, Dashboard Confessional, The Used, Method Man, Unwritten Law, Death Cab for Cutie, Von Bondies, Mixmaster Mike, Spoon, Swollen Members, The Locust, The Perceptionists
