It's probably a good sign when you are tired after a music festival. Nobody is ever tired after having a boring time. Such is the case the day after FUSE Fest 2012. We're very tired.

FUSE Fest 2012. It all starts tonight with a festival pre-party happening at The Hashtag on Wishon Row. See various FUSE Fest artists doing hella short sets, plus get your festival passes for Friday and Saturday along with FUSE Fest merch.
You can also get a sweet program you can use to start planning your festival routing. It's music nerd stuff and it's fun as hell. If you don't get a program you can start planning with this.
Get hyped by listening to all the pre-festival podcasting:
It's like Christmas Eve for Fresno music nerds. Can't wait for it to start.
As we continue our 'post takeover' with FUSE, we find that the new Coattrack Records box set features plenty of FUSE Fest 2012 bands. Such as Niilo Smeds, Actress and Restaurnaut. It's good stuff no matter how many FUSE bands there are:
Check out the video Coattrack put together to promote the box set:
Musician and festival organizer, Cristobal, from animal-punk band Werebear and Spanspek Music & Arts Festival, visits Dorktown and helps the gang talk about stuff like:
- Dove season in Fresno.
- Is it okay for Dorktown to drink something other than Tioga Sequoia beer?
- The whats and whys of Spanspek.
- Growing up Orosi.
- What is wrong with Clovis?
- Mikey gets Dorktown involved with some podcast beef with Podawful and Ear Candy and it's awesome!
- MUSIC BREAK: Collecto.
- Werebear is also playing FUSE Fest 2012 dontcha know.
- Mikey almost dies for Becky.
- What the hell is a Werebear?
- MUSIC BREAK: Werebear.
- Fonzy Eyyys!
Please go out and have a nice craft beer from our friends at Tioga Sequoia!
Check out Dorktown's home, leave a kickass review on iTunes, like their Face and Tweet'um… you know… if you have the time or whatever.
If you're a beer snob then you may have heard of a thing called a 'tap takeover'. It's when one brewing company takes over all the taps at a bar or restaurant for the whole night.
So we're taking that idea and bringing it to the blog world. This week on The Fresnan, all the posts will be Fresno Urban Sound Expierience related. In other nerdy words: FUSE Fest is doing a 'post takeover' here at The Fresnan.
First up, it's maybe the most important of all: the schedule is out for this weekend's FUSE Fest. You can check the site, or check it right now here:
