STREET SCENE founder Rob Hagey has teamed with Casbah's Tim Mays this year in an effort to reinvent the festival as it returns it to its roots in downtown San Diego. Most of the bands in this year's lineup got their start in San Diego at the Casbah or at other local venues on shows produced by Tim Mays/Casbah. The pairing up of Casbah and Street Scene brings a fresh approach to the event with many of the bands making their first STREET SCENE appearance ever.
"This is a return to our roots both musically--with a band like X who played our first year in 1984--and our location that started in the streets of downtown San Diego," stated Rob Hagey, producer and founder of Street Scene. "This year's line-up--with acts like DeVotchKa, Spiritualized and Hot Chip--and being back in the
streets will have such a cool vibe with so many great indie artists in an urban setting."

Dark Clouds Over Symphony Towers: Taken last year at the east-facing window of my cubicle on the 30th floor of the SymphonyTower, downtown San Diego where I used to work. In front of us was a building construction with a crane about 30 floors high at that time. There was a guy who stays in the box on top of that crane all day. I thought if I was that guy, I would be freaked out with those dark clouds looming right ahead.
Parking lot between 2nd & 3rd, and Ash & A St. On some occasions the lot is full at night, other times no customers.  Picture taken from 14th floor of Luther Tower at 2nd & Beech in January of 2009.

San Diego Convention Center
Sidewalk on First Avenue, between Ash and Beech downtown. The pavement, laid and stamped in December 1895 by concrete contractor O. E. Winders, may be the oldest to survive in the downtown area, or even the county. (If you find older, let us know!) It sits between the Reiss Hotel and the Brunswick Hotel, two other survivors of old San Diego. The block had been slated for development, but fortunately for sentimental walkers, the real estate slowdown has delayed developer ’dozers.
Officer Ulysses Harvey stands beside the fountain in the forecourt of SDPD's headquarters, 1401 Broadway, downtown San Diego. The original plan for the 1986 building was to create a stone memorial for officers who had died in the line of duty, but that would have been too heavy for the underground garage to support.
The jeweled crowns and spears guarding the entrance to the Churchill Hotel, 827 C Street, downtown San Diego (no, Winston didn't stay here). The hotel, nearly a century old, was last given a facelift in the 1980s and is due for another later this year.
World's largest Hawaiian shirt, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. It hangs in the window of the Gaslamp's Hilo Hattie store at 301 Fifth Avenue. Tailors at Hilo Hattie, one of Hawaii's biggest fashion retailers, made the shirt for its Kamehameha Day parade float in 1986. It measures 14 feet around the chest, 5 feet around the neck, and needed 26 yards of fabric.
The lace bustier that Madonna wore during her 1985 Virgin Tour, now an artifact displayed in the new Hard Rock Hotel at 345 Sixth Avenue, downtown. The hotel, which opened last December, is packed with some of the chain's $50 million collection of 69,000 rock-memorabilia pieces.

This is photo I took inside the Chee-Chee Bar on Broadway St. I like the way it is lit up, just light enough, but inside dark. It's great for pics and the bartenders are friendly.

Before work each day, I like to take a walk past the U.S.S.
Midway Museum. I have wanted to take a photo of this statue for many
months and I knew when the light would be at its best. The day I showed
up with my camera, the sun was so bright with no clouds in sight. I took
several photos and was already in my car preparing to head to work when
I noticed the USS Dubuque steaming into the area. I hustled back to a
favorable spot and waited for this to happen.

3-30-10: The old Horton Plaza fountain itself is out of use and fenced in, while the small gazebo park around it is completely unmaintained and overgrown. 

Around a dozen homeless people were inside the chained-off park, hanging out on the unmowed grass, most of them having easily maneuvered shopping carts and other belongings past the simple dangling chains - 

The result was like a bizarre zoo cage, set smack dab in the middle of the city, with everyone trying hard to look away from and ignore the cage and its contents.

Oddly, not really all that different than the old pre-Gaslamp dayz of the 1970s, other than the abandoned state of the acreage, which the City only obtained from the late Horton (shortly before he died a pauper) by
promising never to raze the fountain and the park. 

Now, it's a strange and depressing monument to the epic mismanagement of San Diego's most iconic pop culture treasures --

I've never taken photos downtown so one night last week I set out to change that ... I ended up falling in love with this city all over again! A upstate NY native, I fully understand how lucky we are to live here and I take nothing out here for granted. I've traveled a lot and San Diego is hands down the most beautiful, active, vibrant city I've been to. That's why I'm proud to call myself a San Diegian!
