Saturday night was a good one at the Ojai Art Center: musicians Deb Ryder, Crooked Eye Tommy, Shawn Jones and Alastair Greene were in the house, and the house was full.
"Considering the heat, the crowd was close to capacity," said Oatley Kidder, one of the Ojai Blues Fest. Even after the Art Center had depleted its online ticket offering, people were still showing up at the door, she said.
