O.A.R. and Gomez to headline outdoor fest in front of Anthology

by George Varga | signonsandiego.com/

Longtime area music fans pining for the days in the mid-1980s when the now sadly dormant San Diego Street Scene was held on a single downtown block may be in luck.

Anthology, downtown’s plush live music and supper club, is teaming with radio station KPRI-FM to host StreetBeat — The Block Party. The Oct. 1 festival will be held from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. directly in front of Anthology on India Street, in between Ash and A streets. Street Scene, you may recall, began in 1984 on a block in the then-moribund Gaslamp Quartet, with five bands and two stages (as opposed to StreetBeat’s four bands and one stage.)

Confirmed performers for the 21-and-up StreetBeat include the jam-band O.A.R., veteran English rock band Gomez, Mexican singer-songwriter Ximena Sariñana and award-winning San Diego roots-rockers The Silent Comedy.
