In Town Tonight: Typical Thursday Night Kickass

Like it. It's seems Fulton 55 is opening things up a bit. Doin' some punk action, we see. Big Sexy Anus Kings are playing… wait. That was supposed to be seperate. Big Sexy and Anus Kings yes AND Anus Kings are playing…. Anus Kings. Plus the return of Fresno's Beastmaker and maybe the first time It'll Grow Back plays F55 we thinks:

Audie's Olympic. Fresnan Sahab, Mondo Deco (Sac-town glam) and Style Like Revelators (Fresno bluseyrock).

The CYC. Kayo Dot is a "compositional/avant rock band" out of Brooklyn. Wreck & Reference is "experimental drone" music from Los Angels. Strawberry Jam (Fresno) and Ovarian Office… isn't playing, but Eindrah (Fresno) is taking their place so it's cool:

AT Audie's Olympic, Fresno's own Sunburns will be playing stuff off thier forthcoming double LP (to be released Fall 2012). Very good and underratted, excited to hear their new stuff. Also playing is Fools Gold. They hail from Los Angeles and are one of those 12-15 members bands; makes for a lot going on live. Fools Gold have just finished touring with Red Hot Chili Peppers in Europe and are darlings of NPR Music. Watch them here.

AT The CYC, Religious Appeal presents: Gaza (Salt Lake City, progressive), Eagle Twin (SLC, progressive/sludge), Swamp Wolf (Flagstaff, AZ) and Fresno's Cabin Fire. [$7, 7pm, All Ages]
