We are lucky to have an amazing 4,562-seat outdoor amphitheater in our midst. There’s a special vibe that comes with concerts at Santa Barbara Bowl, perhaps because both the performers and the patrons are just so darn happy to be there. This summer’s concert line-up is especially stellar, including Paul Simon (Jun. 5), Bob Dylan (Jun. 11), Bonnie Raitt (Jul. 29) and Jackson Browne (Aug. 27), among many, many others (sbbowl.com).
