MUST HEAR: Steve Poltz

There are few musicians who have had as big an impact on San Diego’s music as Steve Poltz, who performs on Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. during the Scripps Green Flash Concert Series at the Birch Aquarium. An inspiration to countless songwriters and performers, Poltz’s credentials include co-writing one of the biggest hits of the 1990s, “You Were Meant For Me,” fronting the rockin’ Rugburns and a string of collaborations from Gregory Page to Glen Tilbrook, but it’s live where he’s truly built his reputation. Mixing his songs with stories, wit and humor, Poltz puts on a heartwarming show that will lift the spirit, as well as draw the occasional laugh. Poltz remains the benchmark against which all other acoustic troubadours measure up.
