San Diego County Fair’s Top 10 All Time Greatest Musical Acts

San Diego County Fair

The San Diego County Fair has been bringing major acts to Del Mar for years. When looking back on the talent that has come through town, I was blown away by the giants in the music industry who have played the fair. Here’s a look at the top 10.

Robert Plant at The Copley Symphony Hall – Concert Review

RObert Plant Band Of Joy (356x500)

No matter the material he was working with throughout the set, Plant seemed comfortable with a less-is-more approach. Though at times he pushed the vocal boundaries, never did he over step or over do it vocally. Opening the show with a slow walk-through of “Black Dog,” Plant established the theme of the night. Yes, he was going to play Zeppelin material but, he was going to deliver it like you have never heard it before.

The Del Mar Concert Series 2011 Line Up

DEl Mar Concert Series

The 2011 Del Mar Concert Series–the popular Friday night after the races throw down–has unveiled this year’s music line up. Pay the admission to get into the race track, bet on a few ponies, and then enjoy the show. Or arrive after the daily race card and pay 20 bucks to just see the bands. Either way, it’s a good time in Del Mar all summer long.

What I’d like to know is why aren’t these guys playing a side stage at Coachella? Dead Feather Moon is that good! And, though hampered by multiple sound issues, they were still able to convey their message of moody, intricately crafted rock songs.

Easily the surprise of the day, Heavy Guilt created a strong buzz throughout the Fiesta Del Sol, one that should only help them gather followers for their next swing through town.
