Sounds Like San Diego: July 16

There are some really solid shows on Wednesday night, so I would suggest stepping away from the couch and getting out of the house for some live music. At Humphrey's, catch crooner Chris Isaak, or check out Babes at Soda Bar. The Belly Up hosts the always-awesome Antlers with opener Thus Owls, a duo formed in Sweden and based in Montreal. My heart, however, belongs to Robert Francis & the Night Tide. The singer/songwriter is one of my Top 5 in the genre, but don't expect a soft show, because he's known to really let loose. I would also recommend getting to the show early for Maxim Ludwig, who did a residency at the Casbah a couple years ago and is an incredible and engaging performer. It's definitely a great night for music all over town.
