Sounds Like San Diego: April 2



    The first time I happened upon Ume, the Austin rock trio was performing in an opening slot at the Belly Up. The crowd was chatty, the majority of the room more interested in their liquor lubrication than what was happening onstage, but then Ume came out and did their thing, and they finally won the attention and affection of the room. Fast-forward a few years, and the female-fronted band have made their place in the spectrum of bands we love, with bookers from Bar Pink, the Casbah, and Soda Bar adopting the band as if they're locals. On Wednesday, you can catch Ume rock it out at Soda Bar and discover just what makes so many of us swoon over the band.
