Them Rude Boys perform at the 'Vibe: San Jose Soccer and Music Festival' on Saturday.

With Landon Donovan putting the U.S. men’s soccer team back in the news and the Earthquakes on a roll, it seems like an ideal time for “Vibe: The San Jose Soccer and Music Festival.” The festival will debut Saturday, June 2 at the PAL Stadium on 34th Street, with plans to turn it into an annual event.

The festival will feature music from several local bands across a range of genres, including alt-rockers Jackie Rocks Band, led by teenage lead singer Jacklyn Partida; ska fusion outfit Them Rude Boys; Eliqute; Latin Rhythm Boys and Raul y Mexia.

The soccer competition will include a free four-on-four tournament for men, women and youth teams (reserve a spot at vibesoccer.com). Individuals can compete in contests like soccer juggling, keeper wars, target penalty shoot out and one-on-one.

Headliners Jackie Rocks Band were chosen as one of the top 10 high school bands in the country by the organizers of National Record Store Day, and have won or placed in several Bay Area battle of the bands. They got attention for their song “Angels in Heaven,” which was recorded when they were 13 years old.

Sponsored by the Story Road Business Association and the office of Supervisor Dave Cortese, the event runs from 9pm-3pm, with music beginning at 10am, and is free.
