What better way to squeeze out the last days of Summer than a live show by Michael Franti & Spearhead? The raggae-fusion band arrives on the Club Nokia stage Wednesday night as part of The Sound of Sunshine Tour.

The Los Angeles stop also kicks off Franti's Barefoot Concert Series with a mission to sponsor or donate 100,000 pairs of shoes to those in need. Franti paired up with Soles4Souls, an international shoe charity based out of Nashville, to raise awareness of the need for footwear.

Concert goers, Franti fans, and anyone interested in helping out a good cause, can donate to Soles4Souls by texting the keyword "FRANTI" to 20222 or online here. For every dollar raised Soles4Souls will donate a pair of shoes to someone in need.

Ironically, on Wednesday night Franti onto the Club Nokia stage in his barefeet as a matter of habit. He started going shoeless ten years ago and, save for restaurants and airplanes, keeps his feet unencumbered.

Entries will be closed at noon on Wednesday. Be sure to log in directly or using Twitter or Facebook so we can reach you.
