Jam On It

San Diego’s FM 94/9 caps the summer music festival season with its eighth Independence Jam, Sunday, September 16, at the Oceanside Pier Plaza Amphitheatre.

Headlining this year’s event is singer-songwriter and contralto piano goddess Fiona Apple (pictured), performing in San Diego for the first time in seven years.

Also set to rock the North County coast with nonstop music on two stages are experimental folk singer-guitarist Father John Misty, L.A. surf-pop band Best Coast; dance-punk rockers Oberhofer; local electronica prog-rockers Pinback; fuzzed-out pop act Mrs. Magician; and synth glam rockers Gardens and Villa.

Tickets are $45 in advance, $55 day of, and have sold out in recent years.
