What to do on a night like this?

San Diego’s weather is pretty ideal in the summer for night time fun!  Especially if you are a live music lover or music lover in general, San Diego has a multitude of live venues for the avid listener (or dancer!) or the music collector seeking out rare vinyl and ephemera!

Here is a short list of venues downtown close to the Hilton Bayfront Hotel and beyond for any listening taste from jazz to punk to just good old rock’n’roll:

House of Blues, San Diego, http://www.houseofblues.com/venues/clubvenues/sandiego/

Anthology, http://anthologysd.com/index.html

Croce’s, http://www.croces.com/

Stage Bar and Grill, http://www.stagebarsd.com/

4th and B, http://www.4thandbevents.com/

Casbah, http://www.casbahmusic.com/

Have a taste for nostalgia? Looking for the odd LP or rare audio cassette tape?  Record stores are alive and well in San Diego. Take a cab or SD transit to Hillcrest and North Park neighborhoods.
