This weekend is one of my favorites in San Diego. Living in Kensington, there's always such a cool neighborhoody feeling about waking up and walking down Adams Avenue to check out the Roots Festival (and in September, the Adams Avenue Street Fair). Though I'm on about 4 hours sleep, I want to check out Blackout Party's early set, but before I get the walking shoes on, there are FOUR big events happening this weekend, all are family friendly, though I've learned in the past it's better to leave your pets at home, and they're all free. Get out and enjoy San Diego. Keep in mind all of the events are two day events except for Chicano Park Day, which is Saturday only. Make sure to check out the music schedules. Roots Fest has big acts this year like Glen Phillips, Sara Watkins, John Doe, The Watson Twins and more. Don't miss em.
Here are some old photos of Matt Curreri & The Ex-Friends at Artwalk:
