BTO/Sue Palmer double-header (expired event)
Author: glennt :: Posted: Sun Jul 23, 2006 6:42 am GMT
Sunday July 30 features two free concerts in close proximity:They're a 10 minute drive apart (plus the potentially time-consuming parking issues on both sides). If you want to do both, here are two routes from La Jolla Cove to Kate Sessions that you can decide on at the last minute, depending on traffic: coastal route or mountain back roads route.

(I'll be out of town most of the week so I'm posting this early...)

Neil Figuracion DJs at the Firehouse (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Jul 20, 2006 2:11 am GMT
Neil Figuracion (Los Angeles)

Down for his yearly pilgrimage to the mag Mecca we call "Comic Con", Neil Figuracion makes a rare DJ appearance at the Firehouse. Hailing from the barrio of East Los Angeles, Neil Figuracion was one of the first DJs in the Southern California Swing scene, spinning discs at the Hollywood Athletic Club and serving as the regular Late Night Lindy DJ at the original Memories. Always one to keep dancers on their toes, he won first place in the Best DJ competition at the Swing Kat's Ball, and is one of the perennial DJs at Camp Hollywood.

Neil will be DJing tonight immediately following Round 3 of our on-going "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DJ" competition. Only 3 competitors remain vying to right to be called SD's top undiscovered DJ: Aaron Vonderhaar, Dave Azar, and Jason Eberwein. This week, each contestant will take their turn DJing live "on...
Jump Jones (expired event)
Author: Mr Lynne :: Posted: Wed Jul 19, 2006 5:56 pm GMT
Hornblower Cruises boarding 2:30PM and departing 3:00PM with Jump Jones and a group of us from SwingCats and Danceaholics.

Cost is $25/per from Hornblower - So far none of us has had to pay full fare.

Discount info may be provided LATER - Or you are free to check out re-seller ticket sources on your own.

Most of us have paid $16:50 and a few $2:00 more - That $2:00 can be reduced to a few dimes with some Planning/Coordination, including the morning of the event.

To save anyone the effort - We have exhausted Goldstar Events discount tickets.

I plan on asking Ginger and Mary Ann for a dance on our 3 hour cruise (it is only a 2 hour cruise) so perhaps the G~Island girls will be no shows.
