Oceanside’s ‘The Barnwell Shift’ Headlines Ocean Commotion Concert

San Diego CA—  On Saturday, April 18, 2015, San Diego Coastkeeper invites San Diego to rock for a cause at its 4th-annual Ocean Commotion Concert. 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. Oceanside’s The Barnwell Shift will again headline the show.

Known for their progressive, yet playful “shift rock,” The Barnwell Shift is a talented trio of musicians who shift musical instruments and genres while artfully blending the sounds of funk, folk and rock. The band challenges the traditional one-person, one-instrument musical norms while eliciting a truly unique crowd response filled with their smooth and shifty grooves.

Together, The Barnwell Shift and San Diego Coastkeeper started Ocean Commotion four years ago to unite musicians for a cause dear to most residents of San Diego—clean water. The band recruits additional artists for the April 18 event, who all rock the stage with volunteer performances so that ticket costs wholly benefit Coastkeeper. The organization will announce the other bands soon.

In addition to funky music, guests can participate in an opportunity drawing for wonderful prizes from an array of local businesses. Past years’ drawings included gift certificates to restaurants and breweries, surf and skate gear, apparel, vacation stays, beach rentals and much more.

Tickets to this April 18 event are $12 in advance and $15 day of the show, and they will go on sale in February. Campland on the Bay will also release camping/concert packages. Tickets will be available online at www.sdcoastkeeper.org.
