Sounds Like San Diego: July 31

Streetlight Manifesto headline a busy Wednesday night of live music in San Diego

If you haven't been to a Humphreys show this summer, there is no time like the present. It's kinda funny how writing about music daily makes you a bit of an armchair expert on trends, but in the past few weeks especially, there seems to be an uptick of ska acts coming out of the woodwork, and Streetlight Manifesto is no exception. Dance, skank, or just chill while the horns take you away to simpler times. Meanwhile, Psychic Graveyard is a bit of a noise-rock supergroup, so if that's your jam, see it done well at Soda Bar tonight. The Office hosts another Under Cover, this time with the music of the late great Selena, locals Softing (Mike Pope) rock the Merrow, and Bar Pink even has a rock show. Hopefully tonight offers plenty to get you out and rocking this Wednesday night.
