So Much Music In The Park in Silicon Valley – healing to the soul and body

So Much Music In The Park

The Fountain Blues Festival is back, descending on Plaza de Cesar Chavez this weekend. This year, the festival is headlined by Elvin Bishop and also features Aki Kumar. But that’s not all the music in the park we have this week. Music In The Park is also returning—kicking off the summer with Katchafire. Oh… and for all the Tool fans out there. They play SAP Center tonight and tickets are at rock-bottom prices. Last check on StubHub had seats in the upper level going for under $15.
