Sounds Like San Diego: May 31

MarchFourth bring a straight-up carnival show through the Belly Up Wednesday

Marchfourth Marching Band SD

I'm not sure if we still call it humpday after a three-day weekend, but either way, this Wednesday is one in which you're not gonna want to stay home on the couch. The Belly Up will be transformed into a carnival environment as MarchFourth return with their madness. They're like a parade marching band, cheer squad, and traveling carnival all in one and their interactive shows are impossible to understand until you've been there. Meanwhile Warsaw play a rare mid-week show at Whistle Stop, the Merrow goes rock en espanol, Sam Outlaw gets the crowd riled up at Casbah and Mount Kimbie bring their digital sound of bleeps-and-bloops to Music Box. I, of course, would be a liar if I didn't admit that the only place you'll find me is at the Office, to catch local musicians paying tribute to my all-time favorite musician, Ryan Adams. I hope they're ready for me.
