Listen Local since 2003

Listen Local has been proudly serving San Diego's local music community since October of 2003 producing radio and web shows, music festivals, songwriter showcases, kid's shows, cookbooks, calendars, music compilations, camping events, a weekly audio calendar of who's playing where and blog to help share the music being made in San Diego. It's been an honor and a privilege!

Sundays in November

Jump in our zoom room and join the creative circle from 4pm to 6pm every Sunday in November beginning 11/8/20. It's like a less lonely practice. Mute yourself and jam/sing along with others and when it's your turn to play unmute and rock faces. We also welcome poetry, comedy, stories, and sharing your art of any kind. This is a very casual gathering, audio depends on everyone's individual situation. We welcome spectators but we want to see your faces so grab a drink, connect video and let's hang out and enjoy some company! If you're so inclined you can donate a few bucks to support Listen Local via Venmo @Cathryn-Beeks or paypal to or subscribe for as little as $2 a month at
