Sounds Like San Diego: June 3

Wednesday makes you practice venue hopping to catch Walk Off the Earth, Ron Sexsmith and more

Shawn Van Daele

I was bouncing off the walls this week because of all of the awesome shows, but the truth is that venues seem to have bumped weeknight shows up, making it all but impossible to bounce around and catch multiple shows on the same night. So for us music-loving and workin' folk, it brings up the conundrum of which show to hit. Wednesday night, Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith performs at the Casbah, and though he's been covered by many other musicians, to see him in person is going to be quite special and intimate. At the Irenic, Active Child perform for the all-ages set, as do Walk Off the Earth at the Observatory -- which may be a challenging move, seeing as their new record isn't out for a few more weeks. Family of the Year return after their recent support slot at the Observatory for another support slot, this time for AWOLNATION at the House of Blues, and Royal Thunder rumble through the Hideout. Take your pick on Wednesday, but choose wisely, young grasshopper.
