The final day of KAABOO Del Mar 2018 began early on Sunday, September 16th under balmy southern California skies. Early bird concert goers again were greeted by light crowds and some great sets of music. By 1 PM an energetic young crowd had gathered in the courtyard in front of the chill Tourmaline stage. The Los Angeles based Vista Kicks treated the gathering to a spirited set.
