    Mayor Kevin Faulconer and District 2 Councilmember Dr. Jen Campbell, along with a host of Obecians, formally reopened Ocean Bean Pier at early morning ceremony on May 24. “The unofficial start to the summer is here,” proclaimed Faulconer, while thanking City crews for “bringing the pier in on time and under budget, and for working a lot of days and evenings to get this beautiful pier open for San Diego in time for Memorial Day. I’d like to thank the community for all your help and support.” “We’re so happy to have this for our Memorial Day weekend kick-off for the summer,” said Campbell. “This pier means so much to OB. It’s a community gathering center, and we really appreciate the beauty that it provides for us.” “All the businesses are so grateful to have the pier open again,” said Denny Knox of Ocean Beach MainStreet Association. “It really does affect affect us when it’s closed. I want to thank the mayor’s office for pushing so hard to make this happen, and all the work the City and our City Council did all working together to make this happen.” OB Pier was closed in January for public safety and to make repairs after the structure was ravaged by unusually strong winter storms and king tides.  City staff determined that more than 2,200 feet of guard rail, electric, water and sewer lines needed serious repair or replacement. Renovation work began in March and was completed for about $309,000, which is $121,000 less than initially estimated.  More than 50 years old, OB Pier is still in need of permanent repair. City staff is in the process of formulating a long-term rehabilitation plan to evaluate the pier’s overall condition. San Diego Lifeguard Chief James Garland saluted City crews that worked on the pier’s restoration. “They did just a fantastic job,” he said. “It’s nice it will be open for the summer. We’re really excited to have this. It’s like having an old friend back.” Spanning more than 1,970 feet, Ocean Beach Pier is the second longest on the West Coast and the longest concrete pier in the world. The pier opened in 1966 and it receives more than 500,000 visitors every year.

    Chimpos reunites after 30 years and finally records debut album

    Chimpos in Ocean Beach.
    Chimpos in Ocean Beach.

    In the music business the phrase “long awaited debut album,” is practically a cliché. However, in the case of Ocean Beach-based band Chimpos, who took more than 30 years to see their album, “Flung Like A Horse,” come to light, it’s an apt description. Comprised largely of musicians who were part of Point Loma High School’s band scene of the 1980s, Chimpos is a collection of lifelong friends who would gather to make music and have a little fun in between gigs with their own combos. The band is organized by Greg Hildebrand, perhaps best known as owner of Ocean Beach institution, Cow Records. He also wrote the words and music to the Chimpos songs. “It’s not your typical sort of group,” he said with a bit of understatement. The band’s website lists 15 members, though not all are musicians, such as website developer Michael McClure. Point Loma High School and the area has long had a rep for yielding acclaimed musicians and a look at the Chimpos roster confirms that to be true. Notables include bassist Jason Scheff (Chicago), bassist Thomas Yearsley (The Paladins), singer Laura Jane Wilcock (The Tighten Ups) and drummer David Friendly (Was Not Was), alongside guitarist and co-producer Steven Sundell. Chimpos is a true garage band, in both its humble beginnings, as a loose knit group of teenagers aged 14-17, in a parent’s garage, as well as the fact that, though the band is comprised of music scene veterans, they don’t play live. “But we’re going to soon, sort of,” explained Hildebrand. Earlier attempts for the band to play a gig have been scuttled by the band members busy schedules. “After we got the album in hand, I had gone ahead with promotion, I wanted to book a show, so I reached out to everyone. No one contacted me back for four days, so I went ahead and booked it and figured we’d get things together little by little.” Unfortunately, once band members did call back it was to say they were happy to record but weren’t able to do live shows. According to Hildebrand, Friendly came up with the perfect solution. “The plan is to get a bunch of 20-somethings to be Chimpos,” he said good-naturedly. “We wouldn’t make a big deal out of it by calling it ‘The New Chimpos’ or ‘The Young Chimpos,’ but they would do our songs. It would be a real kick to sit back and see that happen.” Plans are tentative for the band to play at the Pont Loma Library’s 60th anniversary event on Sept. 18 (6:30 p.m.). “Flung Like A Horse” was recorded over the course of a year at Chimpo band member Thomas Yearsley’s Thunderbird Analog Recording Studio and released on his label, Lux Records on both CD and vinyl. “It was simply hard to get everyone in the same place at the same time, so it took awhile,” he said. While this is the group’s first album released, it’s not their first recorded. “Actually, it’s our 23rd,” Hildebrand explained. “Over the years, we’ve recorded a lot of albums, but we only made copies for people that played on them and so on. Basically there are between three and 20 copies of each of those.” Future plans include a follow up of sorts to the album, this summer. “It’s actually an audiobook containing seven Chimpos stories,” explained Hildebrand. “New music will depend on whether or not the album sells, but there has been a bit of interest in having us play, so hopefully that will happen.” For his part, Hildebrand is excited about all the new Chimpos activity. “Really, it’s been incredible to have everyone working on this. It’s not like we kept in touch after school, so to have this album out after all these years is really something. All the band members have got their own lives and families now, we’re all busy, so it’s great to be able to take a trip down memory lane like this.” He pauses. “You know, everybody involved has pretty much said the same thing to me about this project. “The songs are fun enough, but it sure is wonderful seeing our old friends.” www.chimposband.com

    Friday Night Liberty in Liberty Station is “supersizing,” expanding along with a name change to First Friday Arts District, and First Friday Arts District (((amplified))) for quarterly concerts. The launch of the inaugural First Friday quarterly event will take place 5 to 9 p.m. on June 7, with the band starting at 6:30 p.m. It will feature live concerts on the grassy North Promenade, along with a craft beer garden and a pop-up market.  June’s First Friday amplified will feature New Reveille, a four-piece Americana band described as “twangy, truck-driving music that runs on classical gas.” Opening for New Reveille will be Nena Anderson with her  blues-tinged, Americana music, velvet voice and catchy melodies.  NTC Foundation associate director of marketing and communications Andrew Waltz said the Arts District has come a long way. “When we started in 2009, the Arts District had seven completed buildings,” Waltz said. “Ten years later, we’ve grown to 45 renovated buildings filled with more than 145 organizations and businesses including art galleries, artist studios, museums, cafés, a food market and more.” Waltz added the event’s new name, First Friday Arts District, “reflects our new approach to this signature event and puts the focus on the arts, the community and the visitor experience. Now, the First Friday Arts District name says when it is and where it is.” It’s hoped the improved First Fridays event will have broader appeal. “We wanted a different narrative to bring in a different audience, folks coming to enjoy the music as well as the art,” Waltz said. “We hope to keep people on their feet with a whole evening of danceable music. They can walk around and visit all the art galleries. We’ll also have local craft vendors, a pop-up market and a beer garden.” Other attractions: - Pop-up Craft Market: Will offer an eclectic mix of local fashion and handmade gifts with outdoor spaces showcasing a curated selection of vendors, artisans, and creative activities. The vendor mix will include jewelry designers, candle makers, vintage retailers, local boutiques, fashion and art mixed with live demonstrations and mini-workshops.  • San Diego Dance Theater: Celebrates educational and outreach programs with performances by Aging Creatively students and outreach classes. Performances at 5:30 and 6: 30 p.m. at White Box Live Arts, Building 176 – 2590 Truxtun Rd.  • DanzArts Children's Academy takes guests on a journey through Mexico and Spain through dance.

    City clears out cave dwellers at Sunset Cliffs

    Three men were recently forced to evacuate an elaborate, makeshift 20-foot by 10-foot cave dwelling dug from the cliff face near Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and Osprey Street. As revealed on social media, the ramshackle residence contained cots, bookshelves, backpacks, laundry hamper, cleaning products, a bucket for waste and bottles of urine, countless needles, blow torches, tools and a scooter and two bikes, among other items. Concerning the viability of such encampments, Capt. Scott M. Wahl of San Diego Police Department’s Neighborhood Policing Division said: “It is illegal to lodge and/or camp in the beach or park area. We are familiar with this very remote and hard-to-get-to location. We have handled encampments there in the past, and need the public’s help in notifying us when they return. It is an area that is ‘off the beaten path.’ ” Added Wahl: “We are currently in the process of getting that site cleaned up. Our beach enforcement team this summer will check the area routinely.”   “Until a case is brought to our office by law enforcement and specific charges are filed, we can can’t comment on potential penalties,” replied Hilary Nemchik, director of communications for the City Attorney, about prescribed punishment for such illegal habitation. Asked if encampments like this were increasing, Wahl said, “I don’t know that I would say they are more common place. I used to work the beach team back in the early 2000s and we had encampments out in Ladera and along the cliffs back then as well.” Responding to what can be done to prevent such encampments, Wahl said: “It is critical we have good communication with the community. We utilize the Get it Done application to receive complaints regarding encampments. It is the best method to notify us of the situation. We can make sure there is resolution to the problem.” Wahl added police work closely with park rangers and environmental services to make sure trash is disposed of, and that abandoned property is properly abated.

    This is a variant of what is happening throughout the San Diego River valley, around PetCo Park, and in O.B. (e.g., the O.B. Library homeless center). The legal framework is clear that homeless offenses are all but unenforceable without available shelter (which purposely is not provided). And, the reality is clear that the phenomenon of mental illness, drug addiction, and thieves are the face of the homeless. That the City allows it to fester is a cry out for a conservatorship for the City.

    Why does the City allow cave living to continue? Cement them solid or collapse them once and for all to stop the nonsense and waste taxpayers money with clean up, police etc.

    The prior comment is right on. These people do not want to join society, work, be productive but instead steal and do drugs. Get them out of our city. Jail and work chain!

    give them a place to live. Have them work it off working for the city,county, state. In the thirties, we had the WPA, CCC etc.

    The recipients built roads, fire trails etc.

    Maybe..because that was a different human being, that wouldn't work today.

    At the same time, Mexico gave land to the their poor,(ejidos)..The people there were able to live there and farm....again, different people ?? Mexicans though, WILL! WORK TO SURVIVE, THEY'RE INDUSTRIOUS..maybe different world then .Drugs have a major influence..all over the world. Druggies..round'em up, put on ankle bracelets, MAKE them work...no work no eat..if they run.....incarcerate ! Personally , I'm not good with the freebee society.AND THE MILLIONS THAT WORKING !! TAXPAYERS ARE PROVIDING for

    the dregs of today's society

    One of the ultimate “American foods” is the hamburger. Almost every restaurant menu includes some kind of burger made of beef, bison or beans, and topped with everything from bacon and eggs to avocado and aïoli, while served on a variety of brioche, buttermilk or ciabatta buns. But no matter what kind of burger hits the spot for you, while visiting the beach communities in May, celebrate National Burger Month by sampling some of the best in San Diego.

The line out the door is there for a reason. For something different, try the Guido Burger, which happens to be inspired by Fieri, who has visited several times.
