In or out of San Francisco, there's a slew of fantastic performances to witness this weekend. Just a few miles south, the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest rings in its 30th year of celebrating jazz traditions while also keeping an eye on its future, a timeless and ever-evolving art form forever imbued with history, innovation and spirit. Staying true to form, the folks at San Jose Jazz have packed in 100 performances of every eclectic subset across 13 stages in a span of three days.

Booked this year are some of our local favorites -- Elujay, Astu, B. Lewis -- but also brings to the region some stellar outfits including The Juju Exchange, Shigeto Live Ensemble and Sons of Kemet. Storied acts Gregory Porter and En Vogue shine among the headliners, plus a noted return home from San Jose's own native son and Stone Throw Records founder, Peanut Butter Wolf.
