Smokestaxx at Tio Leo's Thursday 8/10
Author: JonFromSmokeStaxx :: Posted: Wed Aug 09, 2006 11:42 pm GMT
Hi all--

Come on out for a night's worth of the best Blues, Funk Swing and Soul played LIVE for your listening and dancing pleasure. We've got some great new tunes and guest vocalist Tonee' Hayes will be making the scene to boot.

Where else in San Diego will you be able to bump, strut, and yes, swing to a great 8-piece live band? Not too many choices...but for sure there'll only be one spot where you can ALSO do the Bird, the Swim, the Duck, the Monkey AND the Mashed Potato and still fit right in!!

The Season Finale of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DJ (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:16 am GMT
Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to bring your attention to the Firehouse where Beantown "David" Azar takes on Jason "Goliath" Eberwein in a no-holds-barred DJ battle to decide once and for all who is San Diego's newest DJ God!

The contest rules this week are very simple:

Contest begins at 10p as each contestant DJs a 30-minute set (10-10:30 or 10:30-11:00) -- no musical limits -- diversity is always a plus. At 11p, everyone in attendance will vote for his/her favorite DJ. One ticket-vote per person. Winner will be the contestant receiving the largest number of votes, and will be announced tonight at 11:15p.

Come on out to the Firehouse and help us choose our first-ever SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DJ contest winner.

Good luck, Dave and Jason...and may the best DJ win!

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...)
