With the sun setting on this year’s summer music festival season – SPIN has been on the ground for most of them – the 24th annual Street Scene descends upon San Diego September 19 and 20. The two-day block party is returning to its downtown roots, after a two year defection to neighboring Chula Vista, with an eclectic line-up of indie, punk, alternative, world and folk music, along with an army of street performers and vendors.

Tickets are still available in one-day ($65) and two-day ($95) passes. A complete line-up is posted at street-scene.com, but the San Diego Union-Tribune has the definitive guide to Street Scene 2008.
