Sounds Like San Diego: May 14

Hump Day is here, and it's certainly begging you to get out of the house, where the temperatures can feel extra exhausting. Why not get out to a show, where you're at least supposed to feel a little too hot and sweat just enough to forget how stifling the actual heat can be? On Wednesday, Stephen Marley performs a sold-out show at the Belly Up, Say Hi (formerly Say Hi to Your Mom) bring their indie rock to the Casbah, and Sway + Art hosts a stellar local lineup at U-31. Christina Perri performs at Humphrey's -- though we think you'll be more impressed by the opener Birdy -- and BlessTheFall bring their angst to SOMA, which, all in all, should make for some good options this Wednesday night.
