Adams Avenue a Little Quieter

Marco Anguiano, who had much to do with organizing talent for the Adams Avenue Street Fair, died August 24 of cancer. He was 50.

"He really stressed San Diego groups," says Judy Moore, associate director of the Adams Avenue Business Association. "He was always looking for people who wrote their own music."

The Adams Avenue Street Fair, which draws an estimated 130,000 people, is San Diego's largest annual music festival. Anguiano had been instrumental in selecting artists during the past ten years. He oversaw the talent lineup for the Adams Avenue Roots Festival as well.

"He and Lou Curtiss set up the Roots Festival," says Moore. "He would work on [the festivals] full-time, even when he was undergoing treatments [which began last year]. When he was in the hospital, work was taken to him. He was cancer-free in January."

Jose Sinatra says, "Shortly before his relapse, he was undergoing therapy and had lost his hair. He said he was sick of wearing these caps to work. I provided him with a bag of assorted costume wigs -- multicolored Afros, punk, surfer, old lady -- he enjoyed them all. He held on to them until he went back in the hospital."

Headliners at this year's Adams Avenue Street Fair (September 24 and 25) are Pinetop Perkins, Hacienda Brothers, Bel-Rays, Nortec Collective, and Transfer. About 72 artists have been booked.
