The Coronado Summer Concert series kicks off this weekend at the Coronado Ferry Landing, in San Diego, California, with Saturday's 2:00 pm performance by Kyle Ban Band, followed by a 1:00 pm show by the Paragons on Sunday. The concert series will continue every weekend with various artists, through the first weekend in September. www.portofsandiego.org

The Newport Yachting Center kicked off the Nantucket Nectars Sunset Music Series earlier in June, and though you've missed Boz Scaggs (and if you didn't, wasn't that good?) there is much more to come. The month of July alone will bring blues legend B.B. King (July 11), 90's rock band Cake (July 17), the Blind Boys of Alabama (July 24), the Indigo Girls (July 29), and George Thorogood and the Destroyers (July 30), to this great waterfront venue.
