La Lucha with Jun Bustamante A program of Latin-seasoned jazz standards by local trio La Lucha — upright bass caresser Alejandro Arenas, beat-keeper Mark Feinman and keys stroker John O’Leary — is augmented by the silky rich vocal stylings of local songstress Jun Bustamante, who can croon a bilingual turn of phrase with classy finesse.

America’s Most Wanted Festival: Lil Wayne w/T.I./Tyga/Future Whether he's offering up his misogynistic brand of romanticism in “Love Me” with Drake and Future on the hook (“I can give a fuck ‘bout no hater, long as my bitches love me”), rapping about his net worth with 2 Chainz in “Rich as Fuck” and tossing lines about all the fake hoes he’s killing and the real one he’s filling with his hose pipe (“That pussy feel just like heaven on earth / Six feet deep, dick shovel in the dirt, R.I.P. — Rest In Pussy”), or claiming to enjoy an anxiety-free existence with Detail in “No Worries” (“She say sorry I didn’t shave so that pussy a little furry / I put that pussy in my face: I ain’t got no worries”), Lil Wayne (aka Lil Tunechi aka Young Weezy aka Weezyana) never suffers from a lack of things to say about women, smoking weed, or his apparently oversized member. The tatted, brassy-voiced rapper from New Orleans brings his latest mega hip-hop tour to town in support of 10th studio album I Am Not a Human Being II. (MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, Tampa)

Lemuria w/Feral Babies/DieAlps! Buffalo, N.Y. indie punk-pop outfit Lemuria — which hits town on the heels of releasing a third full-length, The Distance Is So Big on Bridge 9 Records — has been wooing audiences and steadily gathering fans since their inception nine years ago, with Sheena Ozzella cooing lyrics like “Don’t look at me with your ‘I know you’re going to die’ eyes” and “Quick to buy a round or throw a fist, slow to open my heart” that sweeten up Lemuria’s sound, and adding guitar riffage to the lively rhythm section thrust of bassist Max Gregor and drummer Alex Kerns. (Crowbar, Ybor City)

Florida Music Food Initiative Showcase: Mindy Simmons/James Hawkins/Jenn Weidley/Austin Truax/John French/Leigh Humes/Mary Beth Campbell/The Dunn Deal/Jeffrey Friberg/Steve Humes/William L. Whitacre Florida Music Food Initiative (FMFI) is a not-for-profit project that raises funds and provisions for the Florida Association of Food Banks and the Florida Coalition for the Homeless via compilation albums and music showcases featuring Florida native singer-songwriters who’ve donated their talents to the dual causes of homelessness and hunger. This particular concert is a free food drive, so attendees should bring a few nonperishable food donations and some cash to grab a copy of the first double-disc FMFI collection, Am I My Brothers’ Keeper? For more info, visit floridamusicfoodinitiative.org. (Hideaway Café & Recording Studio, St. Petersburg)

Micah Schnabel w/Booker & Norton Two Cow Garage’s raw and passionate singer-guitarist-songwriter Micah Schnabel has penned his fair share of punk-kicking alt-country scorchers for his band, and he’s also recorded a few albums worth of solo fare, 2009’s When the Stage Lights Go Dim and last year’s sophomore outing, I’m Dead, Serious, both on Suburban Home Records. He performs a set of songs from both along with select Two Cow Garage cuts at Yeoman’s, with warm-up by soulful stomping guitar-and-drums indie rock combo, Booker & Norton.

SUNDAY, JULY 14
Sole Food 2 + Ol’ Dirty Sundays
Before the usual crunk, break and swig party takes place at Ol’ Dirty Sundays, resident DJs Casper and LeSage present a redux of the successful sneaker exchange they held in February. From 5 to 10 p.m., local guests Knucklez (“The Korean Supreme”) and Ritz (“America’s Favorite Cracker”) spin the soundtrack to Sole Food 2 while Bay area residents from far and wide converge to hawk, trade and cop some new (or gently used) kicks. Admission is free; selling shoes is not. Call 727-470-4636 for more info. Once the shoe carnival is over, the regularly scheduled ODS party commences with DJ Infader from Jacksonville firing up the guest decks. (Crowbar, Ybor City)

Rays Concert Series: Carly Rae Jepsen Swarms of tweens are sure to overrun the Trop for the latest edition of the post-game concert series, which features promotional DJ Kitty snowglobes for 14-and-under-aged Rays fan and a live performance by Justin Bieber-championed Canadian pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen. Expect a sing-along that reaches record-setting levels of fervor when Jepsen inevitably launches into catchy saccharine chart-topper, “Call Me Maybe.” (Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg)
