BANDGEEK!: A Rocking Vacation

We are on a vacation. That’s our excuse THIS week for having another limited Bandgeek post. Now you may ask “How DOES one take a vacation from being an unpaid blogger?” Not sure but it’s happening. Anyway, Fresno music isn’t taking a vacation. It’s working hard:

FRIDAY

KUPPAJOE’S: Metal and hardcore from San Jose’s Me The Mountain and more:

BANDGEEK!: Goldenboys, Big Tops, Down Words, Chop Tops and Dismembering

We have to apologize for this week’s Bandgeek. It’s thin on linking, heavy on just fliers. We are helping with next week’s big local music event and this version of Bandgeek is half-assed because of it. It’s cool, it’s still… Bandgeeeeek!!:

FRIDAY

FULTON 55: So-Cal indie dream-pop band Goldenboy. More show info here.

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:

It'llgrowback

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:

In Town Tonight: SHEL, Ten Thousand Leagues

FULTON 55: Four classically trained musicians, whom happen to be sisters that were raised in an artist colony, will make for a interesting night at F55 tonight. They are called SHEL and we advise you to check them out:

THE CYC: Something musically nowhere near the Fulton 55 show. So-Cal hardcore from Ten Thousand Leagues, Lyburnum and A Modern Loss. Plus Stockton's A Place Called Home, Fresno's Grow and Cabin Fire:
