Scion Music in the Park
Summer is almost here and what’s a better way to ignore recession woes than to hit up the park for some free music? Every year Music in the Park delivers something for everyone’s tastes. This year is no different! Here’s the lineup:

August 20: Sonny Landreth (blues/rock)

Now I know I’ll be at the Third Eye Blind and maybe the Better Than Ezra concerts – but my ultimate fave is Matt Nathanson. He’s so entertaining and hilarious – really a show you won’t want to miss. I believe the last time he was in San Jose for a Music in the Park (I think it was for Music in the Other Park) was back in 2006.
Regardless of who you decide to see, no doubt the summer is going to be lots of fun.
