KAABOO Discovery Tour show at Quartyard will feature Lindsay White, Desert Rhythm Project, Sweet Tooth, Sophia Dion


How do area bands, solo artists and comedians become part of the lineup for KAABOO Del Mar, the largest annual festival in San Diego County?

By competing.

That’s exactly what Lindsay White, Sophia Dion, Sweet Tooth and Desert Rhythm Project will do at Friday’s battle of the bands-styled KAABOO Discovery Tour show at downtown’s open-air Quartyard.

The all-ages event will give attendees the opportunity to cast their ballots. It will also offer the opportunity to hear White — a gifted troubadour who often performs solo — play with her full band.

Friday’s concert is the third of four KAABOO Discovery Tour shows. The winner will be added to the lineup for the fourth annual edition of KAABOO Del Mar, which takes place Sept. 14-16 and is being headlined by Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons and former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant.

KAABOO Discovery Tour, featuring Lindsay White, Sweet Tooth, Sophia Dion and Desert Rhythm Project: 7 p.m. Friday. Quartyard, 1301 Market St., downtown. $10.
