STARLINE: Local rock from Van Houtens Band and more (wish we could tell ya more but that's all the info that was findable). Serious.

SATURDAY

TOKYO GARDEN: Yes, finally a good show at Tokyo, it's been a while. Sad Horse is a two-piece girl/guy guitar/drums punk band from Portland. One of the members is also in a band you may know called Fuck. All around excellent local musician Niilo Smeds is playing solo and so is Fatty Cakes. And now presenting the most timely flier in Fresno history:

AUDIE'S OLYMPIC: Fresno's Old Tire Swingers have been touring Earth so much (and are going out for more) that this Fresno show is really just another stop. Plenty of solid backing for this show with Poor Mans Poison, Deep Chatham and Copper & Glass:

KUPPAJOE'S: It would be advisible to get tickets ahead of time for this one. CD release show for PK (SLO/Fresno). These guys seem ready to break out and there can't be too many more chances to see them play in such a small venue. Also playing is My Beautiful Surrender and Wise Club:

FRESNO BREWING COMPANY: Probably won't matter much if you know who Ephiram is, just come out to have some good craft beer and listen to Jimmie O & The Same Old Sorrow:

  1. I highly recommend checking out Sono Vero’s new EP “Babylon Lady” on Spotify. These cats are all under 20 and sound tight! Very impressive…solid reggae grooves, soulful vocals, overall fantastic stuff. I’ll be there.
