San Diego Coastkeeper and Oceanside’s The Barnwell Shift band are again getting together this spring to host the 4th annual Ocean Commotion event. This years event will be outside at Campland on the Bay, Saturday, April 18th from 5-10PM. In addition to live music, there will be food beer & prizes. So yeah, super badass.

We like bands, prizes, good causes and to support clean water initiatives in San Diego County. We like charity. We definitely like clean water. We need food, but we really like beer. So we’ll be there.

Advance tickets are available online here for $13.65 (that includes the eventbrite fee tax) or $15 the day of the event. All ticket proceeds go directly the charity.

This year it’s bigger, better and more fun at Campland on the Bay to raise money and celebrate San Diego Coastkeeper’s 20th year protecting and restoring fishable, swimmable, drinkable waters.

We talked to Jamie at SD Coastkeeper to learn more about the 2015 Ocean Commotion.

SoCal Sessions: This years event will be the 4th annual. How have you seen the event grow over the past few years? 

Jamie: This year will be the biggest Ocean Commotion concert yet with an outdoor venue, bands, prizes and even more guests, which leads to making a bigger impact on our community.  We are excited to celebrate our mission where it matters: on the water.

SoCal Sessions: Why should people attend this event, and how does SDCoastkeeper use the proceeds from the event?

Jamie: Whether you work or live in San Diego County, the health of our community depends on the health of our water. Ocean Commotion brings awareness to the importance of clean water in San Diego County. The money raised will go directly to our programs to protect and restore fishable, swimmable, drinkable water in San Diego County.

SoCal: Sessions: What makes this a fun event?

Jamie: San Diego will be able to rock out for clean water on Saturday, April 18 at Campland on the Bay. There will be live music featuring The Barnwell Shift, delicious food and beverages, and guests can participate in an opportunity drawing to win fun packages. We hope people will join us all weekend, taking advantage of special camping packages to stay at Campland on the Bay and enjoy the waterfront campground.
