Ditch The Kids: Super Cool Summer Camps in San Diego

I know that summer kid stuff isn't typically what I post around here, but summer is here and with that comes the responsibility of filling up those kids' schedules. Nova is in derby year-round, we'll be getting our fall soccer roster soon, we're loaded up with our passes to Aquatica, Magic Mountain, and the San Diego Zoo, and we plan on lots of time at parks, at the beach, and hiking around San Diego, and pretty soon she'll be taking off to St. Louis for four weeks, but it still leaves us with stuff to plan, stuff we wish she could do but can't, and stuff maybe one day she can do should our summer arrangement ever change. So while thinking of all this stuff, I just kept getting more and more cool camp offers that I thought I'd share with you. Of course, San Diego County YMCA, San Diego Parks and Rec, and San Diego County Parks have plenty of activities, too, in addition to most of the 19 cities of San Diego County, plus all of your typical martial arts, sports, music, and arts facilities. Comment your favorites and I'll add them to the list!!

Things To Do In San Diego: Monday, June 19-Sunday, June 25, 2017




I know a lot of parents whose kids are already on summer break, but we've got three more days of school before our official summer begins. We still made the most of the week and weekend. I worked at the Robyn Hitchcock show on Tuesday, and Circa Waves and Dreamers on Wednesday. Thursday night we had a potluck and awards ceremony for Nova's soccer team, and Friday I spent the day at the Fair as a judge for the Battle of the Bands which actually had some great talent. On Saturday I found out my interview with Evan Dando had canceled, so I packed a bag and met Darren and Nova and my sister and a whole slew of friends at Law Street where the weather and water were perfect. I could've stayed all day and night, but then I heard my interview was back on. I was at the Casbah by 7pm, but Evan showed up super late, and the condition he was in was pretty heartbreaking. I'll save it for another post, but the whole show was just pretty sad. Father's Day was pretty low key--I worked most of the afternoon while watching Netflix with Nova so Darren could just chill then stayed at my parent's house so I can help my dad with some stuff this morning. This week is gonna be awesome, we are doing Father 's Day for real tonight as Nova and I agreed to a canoe night to King Crimson, and I intend to check out My Jerusalem, !!!, The Heavy Guilt, and Peter Bradley Adams.

Things To Do In San Diego: Monday, June 12-Sunday, June 18, 2017



I gotta say, I'd gotten into the routine of  going to more shows during the week and having weekends more devoted to family time, but this weekend never let up. I went to the Overcoats show on Thursday and they were amazing, and then Friday I worked the whole day at Oysterfest. The weather was absolutely perfect, the bands were all super, and my belly was happy as I had some rad grub, including a delicious shrimp sandwich and a plate full of oysters. On Saturday I had lunch and day drinks with my sister and cousin and then worked for Earthless at the Casbah until the wee hours. And if that all wasn't enough, Sunday was a marathon with Joshua James playing an early show at Soda Bar, then catching Phoenix at X-Fest with Nova and Darren, and then closing the night with The Builders and the Butchers at Casbah. It was an awesome weekend, but today and tonight will be nothing but time at home, sleeping in, and hopefully finishing my latest read. Monday through Sunday archives are after the jump.

Recap: The In-Ko-Pah 4 Weekend


A few years ago, I was invited to a weird ass festival in Jacumba around the hot springs. The music was cool, but it was mostly high teenagers trying to bum booze, I was laughed at when I checked in for a press pass, and it was unbearably hot and dusty, resulting in us staying for just a few bands and returning home before sunset. If only those people had it half as together as The In-Ko-Pah.

I knew The In-Ko-Pah wasn't at the same location and found an article online to be helpful in giving us some idea where we were going. It was hotter than we expected in the desert this past weekend, and there was music, but that's where the similarities of the two events end. The In-Ko-Pah takes place at The High Desert Tower, a privately owned property in Jacumba, just north of the 8 freeway off exit 77. You know when you go somewhere or do something and you can't believe you never did it before and you kinda kick yourself? That's kinda how I was. I was just in awe the whole time, from the location to the participants to the attendees to the amenities and planning, it was just an incredible experience. I'd heard that the wind was especially brutal last year, so it was probably best that we waited to pop our cherry this year, but still, I can't believe I ever missed it. The In-Ko-Pah was an amazing experience.

Things To Do In San Diego: Thursday, June 8-Sunday, June 11, 2017

I've hardly been outside this week. I recovered from camping but between working, reading, writing, and sleeping super odd ours of the day, I haven't caught any shows this week. In fact, I have barely left the house besides a fun morning hike at Mission Trails and a trip to the library to get more books. Part of that is because this is going to be a huge weekend. I'll be working for RFTC all day Friday at Oysterfest, Saturday we've got a birthday party and I'll be working for Earthless at the Casbah, and Sunday should be a marathon of music, which also means I've got to get next week's listings done earlier than usual plus some posts I've been researching and will try to get out soon. Yikes. This week in San Diego has been interesting, between Monday's Council meeting and Wednesday's brawl at the Observatory, it's easy to go down the news rabbit hole, but I promise I'll get out today and hopefully make it to check The Overcoats tonight. Friday through Sunday listings are after the jump.

Observatory North Park: Fight Breaks Out as XXXTentacion Sucker Punched During Performance

Apparently the Observatory North Park was quite the scene on Wednesday night as headlining performer XXXTentacion was sucker punched on stage while performing. According to various accounts on social media, the alleged perpetrator was San Diego based rapper Rob $tone (or someone from his crew. Apparently they've had a beef brewing for quite some time.

The Observatory in mellower times

I was not at this show. Several people reached out to me on social media so I thought I'd reiterate that my employment at the venue ended in October 2016. I very much frequent the venue and I will continue to do so, but only in the capacity of a fan and photographer, and occasionally to sell merch when requested.

If you've been to a show at the venue, you know that security is very tight, as aggressive as TSA in a lot of ways. They're strict about all items coming into the venue, all the way down to lighters and pens. There is an armed San Diego Police Department officer at every show the venue holds. Still, and why when I worked there I often argued security was over the top, the inconveniences in time don't really prevent incidents from occurring, and in my if-I-ran-a-venue beliefs, I'm for open cameras, a quick bag check, and treating adults like adults.

It isn't clear if the perpetrator was, in fact, Rob $tone. It also isn't entirely clear if reports of a stabbing in the venue are accurate (or even connected to what happened onstage). What is known is that this tour is supposed to play at the Observatory Santa Ana on Thursday night, and the strongest message that could be sent would be to make a public statement, cancel the show, and ban all artists involved from ever playing either venue again. The money isn't worth it. It is the Observatory's duty to set the tone for their expectations of artist and fan behavior and not doing so sends a message, at best, that this is glossed over as a random incident and at worst, that this behavior is totally acceptable and will be tolerated. It is an invitation for escalation and destruction, and in my opinion, not making an official statement and keeping Thursday night's show would be a grave mistake.

Coverage of the incident:

NBC San Diego

Hip-Hop DX

CBS 8

Fox 5

SD Union Tribune

Twitter

Update:
Statement from Councilman Chris Ward:

Last night's dramatic episode at the Observatory in North Park is obviously unacceptable from a public safety perspective, and I commend our police officers for their quick action to prevent circumstances from getting even worse. The incident also underscores the ongoing tensions between North Park's nightlife and surrounding neighbors. The community cannot be expected to sacrifice basic standards of public health and safety, and we must critically reevaluate our approach to maintaining a workable balance that keeps North Park such a great place to live and visit.
I will be meeting with SDPD, management at the Observatory, and community members to make sure all necessary safety protocols are in place to prevent this from happening again.

This Weekend: Oysterfest 2017 at Embarcadero Marina Park North

This weekend is Oysterfest at Embarcadero Marina Park North . Tickets are still available for purchase here or you might still be able to grab them on Goldstar with a quick search. I'm pretty impressed this year because I really dig the way the lineups are separated. While there's certainly some crossover interest, for the most part, the people I know who love the Friday lineup wouldn't touch the Saturday one and vice versa, and that's just fine. Both seem to offer pretty robust and diverse music options, and to be perfectly honest, most of the time you're going to be perusing the variety of oyster options and finding the beer and booze lines anyway. I predict this June gloom will clear in a day or two and you can count on perfect weather for this super fun annual event.
Pro-tip: Take a significant amount of cash with you for the vendors. The on-site ATMs are a total rip.



What I'm Watching: If You're Not In The Obit, Eat Breakfast | Downward Dog | Radio Dreams

I got a really positive response to my last post about my indulgent television habits, so I've decided to do another post. The main seasons of shows seem to be on pause until summer series drop or the full schedules return in fall, so there's this horrible glut of game and talent shows right now which maybe aren't so bad if you fast forward all the bullshit backstories with DVR, but I don't have that function so I just have to dig deeper. Still, there were a few things that caught my attention in the past couple weeks (besides San Diego City TV of course...some of those Council meetings have been pure comedy fire!) Check it after the jump.

Things To Do in San Diego: Monday, June 5- Wednesday, June 7, 2017



I am exhausted. If you need to reach me today, send telepathic messages through my dreams because I have some sleeping to catch up on. The In-Ko-Pah 4 was beyond what I could've imagined and I look forward to telling you all about it, plus we had Nova's final soccer game of the season, and I worked at the Irenic on Sunday night, but for now, let me just get this week's events posted for you and I'll fill you in on the other good stuff later this week. Monday through Wednesday archives are after the jump.

Things To Do In San Diego: Saturday, June 3-Sunday, June 4, 2017

Posting one of me and the kid from a few weeks ago, because I can't wait to take her on her first camping trip ever. 

There was a time in my life when I loved camping. With my family, it meant loading up our camper, going to a campsite, my dad with his little TV inside our camper, the kids roaming around, mom doing the grill or the stove inside our camper, and just having total freedom. In my early twenties, I had a group of friends who did an annual trip and it was always awesome, though they kinda took care of everything and I kinda did nothing but hang out, drink, eat, hike, and enjoy the weekends. That sorta fell apart when our glue, Mikey, died of cancer and the rest of us lost touch. These days, I love roadtrips, I love getting out of town (even though inevitably our dog will pee on the bed for Elliott, who so kindly looks after her) but we three have never camped together. So of course, today we went to four stores (Big Lots, Harbor Freight, Sprouts, Vons), and still need more stuff with a CostCo run in the morning. On top of that, we have soccer and I have work on Sunday when we return, so I stayed up all night watching my shows (Vice, Real Time, Chelsea) while I plotted out next week's listings for Monday posting. And when I thought, maybe I should drink the camping beer while I work, I was strong and resisted. As a compromise, I popped a bottle of cheap chardonnay I had chilling for months and got my shit handled. Because that's how I roll. I'll be mostly off the grid while at In-Ko-Pah, so have a great weekend, and catch ya on the flip.

Things To Do In San Diego: Tuesday, May 30-Friday, June 2, 2017


What a perfect weekend. Darren, Nova and I went to Foster the People on Friday night and after I went to Casbah for San Diego Freak Out which was super fun and packed. Saturday the little one had a derby party where she got the "Small But Deadly" Award voted by her team. Afterward we all motivated for a Balboa Park takeover with a huge group of friends and kids and it was an amazing day in the sun. My Godsister came by, too, so I could shoot their prom photos which is always fun to do around the park. Our picnic group eventually moved to Panama 66 before calling it a day. I went home to catch up on work, then met up with my sister & her friends at Tribute Pizza followed by the birthday girl dragging us all to U31. Eventually that little party split up around midnight and I went to Bar Pink to be among my kinda people and closed out the night. Sunday we went to Tim's Memorial Day BBQ and that left Monday as a work day. This is a big week ahead, with tons of great shows all week and then In-Ko-Pah this weekend. I am missing updated June calendars for Bar Pink, Black Cat Bar, El Dorado, FLUXX, Harbor Music Hall, and Sycamore Den, but otherwise archives through Friday are after the jump.
