Past Event

Giant Automotive Festival

  • Friday, April 1, 2016, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Del Mar Fairgrounds, 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard, Del Mar
  • $20

Past Event

Patty Griffin, Sara Watkins, Anaïs Mitchell

Folk-icon Patty Griffin, founding member of the neo-folk trio Nickel Creek, Sara Watkins, and proto-folk phenom Anaïs Mitchell present an evening of onstage collaboration. Though their work tends to skew more personal than political, the three singers’ Use Your Voice Tour 2016 seeks to increase voter engagement and promises to be the most harmonious — or at least the least discordant — piece of political theater to hit the stage in this election year.


Past Event

Peter Murphy

According to Murphy’s website, the former Bauhaus singer will be “performing acoustic versions of his music from throughout his illustrious career.” He will be joined by longtime friends/collaborators Emilio China and John Andrews — “The three of us I’m sure will equal a hundred men.” Murphy & Co. take the all-ages stage at the Irenic on Friday.

Past Event

Brueghel to Canaletto: European Masterpieces

A new exhibition featuring some of the finest still-life and landscape paintings from leading Dutch, Flemish, Italian, Spanish, and German artists of the 17th and 18th Centuries. The works represent a turning point in history when artwork began to be collected by those other than nobility, and the art market emerged. Made possible by a loan from the private collection of the Grasset family of Spain, the exhibition features nearly 40 pieces never before displayed publicly. The collection will be on view at the museum, the sole venue for the exhibition, from April 2 through August 2. Be among the first to see it at this preview.

Paddle for a Concert

  • Tuesday, April 5, 2016, 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Humphreys by the Bay, 2241 Shelter Island Drive, San Diego
  • Free

For decades, boaters have filled the channel adjacent to the waterfront stage of Humphreys Concerts by the Bay to hear the performances, but you don’t need a large luxury vessel to do it. For kayakers, it is easy to paddle out and catch a show — there is a launch from the beach at Bessemer Street on the Point Loma side of the La Playa Cove and free public parking nearby. It’s a half-mile, ten-minute paddle to the water just stage-side. If you’d like to join a group that does these and other trips, San Diego Kayaking Meetup hosts outings for all of the Humphreys bayside shows this season.
