SAN DIEGO — Music enthusiasts might want to consider coming to San Diego: a new list by the website Move.org ranks it as the second-best city in the nation for live music lovers. The research lists different types of live music shows from jazz lounges to rock concerts.
The ranking is based on live music venues per 100,000 residents. The information was gathered by searching Yelp for music venues in the 70 most populated US metro areas.
