Saturday The Fierce Creatures Managed To Make The Fulton Mall The Best Place In Fresno

Congratulate promoter Religious Appeal. Congratulate the Fierce Creatures. The Fresno Brewing Company. Sheet Jesus (he was there). Fresnans. Everyone. It was a special kind of night on the Fulton Mall Saturday.

The Beehive has some quotes and a fine video up that explains it better than we can. We did get this video that gives those that weren't there an idea of how many Fresnans are willing to go see live music on the Fulton Mall:

If John or somebody can give us all the formula to make this kind of thing happen on a regular basis in Fresno (and we mean wherever), we'd be mighty grateful.

Listen To This: Remotely Drunk – Dorktown Podcast #119

Dorktownep119

We just had a lot of fun with this one. Too much? Yes. Annoying sometimes? Yes. But good times. Dorktown's first ever guest, Aaron "The La Selva Beach Connection" comes back and gets rude with the gang. As usual we talk (over each other) about: Fresno, Clovis, craft beer, beer beer, Gold Lays, sexy Armenians, extra holes, other podcasts and so on. We also play a mega Or Game/Forit Or Againit/Is It Metal.

Make sure to listen for the remotes with Dead In 60 Years!! Plus some live Light Thieves and we play the new Fierce Creatures. BONUS remote with the mom older sister of Whitney Freeman from Achievement House. There may even be a "Bert" Easter Egg in a remote or two.

It gets real "drunk-y" so be warned. Have a listen:
