July 9 - Bulevar Descarga @ Memorial Bowl (373 Park Way)
Bulevar Descarga (BD) is a musical group from San Diego and Tijuana who began their journey playing original music in early 2013. These artists, musicians and critical thinkers produce their songs with the sole purpose of creating an energetic and positive atmosphere that will resonate throughout time. BD is influenced mainly by classic rock, soul, reggae, funk, groove, classical, and Latin jazz. Band members have played and shared the stage with musicians such as Sonora Santanera, Grupo Cañaveral, Charles McPherson, Jenny and the Mexicats, No Doubt, El Tri, Snoop Dogg, 311, Zac Brown Band, Jarabe de Palo, Gregory Isaacs, Don Carlos, Eek a Mouse, Cultura Profetica, Los Cafres, Molotov, Sergeant Garcia, Los Pericos, Barrington Levy and more.

August 13 - Rachel Aldous and the Road Home @ Heritage Park (1381 E Palomar)
This little band has grown from the original members, Rachel Aldous (lead vocals, songwriter), Lee Spotts (guitarist, songwriter), and Dave Martocchio (percussion, accordion) into a now larger group. Anna Tsai (fiddle, mandolin, viola, cello, backing vocals), Jerry Marcu ( banjo, harmonica, backing vocals), Josh Lucero (kit drum, backing vocals), David Picone (kit drums) and Julian Straus (bass) have now become an intrinsic element of our sound and our family.
Their style might be described as a little bit of everything; kinda a musical stew of sorts. The instrumentation is Americana/ Bluegrass, with bits and pieces of folk and pop in the mix as well. This combination makes for a toe tapping, tune humming, get up and dance good time. For more info, visit www.rachelaldous.com
September 10 - Liquid Blue Band @ Community Park (1060 Eastlake Parkway)
