>At Audie's Olympic, another killer show by Love The Captive. Los Angeles "psychedelic violence" band The Shrine with local favorites It'll Grow Back. Skateboard mag, Thrasher, calls The Shrine “A hard-hitting three-piece, combining the hooks and tones of classic rock with the energy and stage presence of a thrash band." Sounds kick ass to us. Get a little deeper with The Shine:
>Also happening for those that can't get into Audie's or for those that do not fear China Town, very good show at C.A.F.E. Infoshop as David Liebe Hart (yes, the dude you've seen on Adult Swim's "Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job") returns to Fresno. Lot's of local acts too including Danny Lango, Fatty Cakes, Restaurnaut, I Do Not Exist and Gorilla Stomp. [$7, 7pm, All Ages]
>Not to be forgotten, down in Babylon, a free show with TheDaysGone & Cabin Fire! Show starts at 9pm and is 21+.
We like fliers. They give info so we don't have to search it out and type it into a blog post. Plus they're sometimes pretty to look at and they give some weight to a show. Just a little pro tip to all you venue owners and promoters. Yeah, I know you're thinking "But I already know this, you asshole blogger!" Do you?…Do you?
Props to those with fliers this week. This is…BANDGEEEEEK!:

Fresno's 9th Swede Fest – maybe the most unique event out of Fresno – is next Thursday the 24th. And there is still time to get your entry in this year's festival. The deadline is Sunday before Midnight. As a added bonus, this time around you can see your Swede in an actual movie theater!
It happened once over at DI60Y: two local fowl-mouthed and swarthy podcasters coming together on one episode. You would have thought these two would've learned from that episode never to 'cross streams' again – too much shit talking for one person's ears to take.
They did not learn. In this episode of Dorktown, a majority of the DI60Y crew joins Bells, Mikey and Producer B in the Dork studio for a meta local podcast. There's talk of:
- Bullard parties.
- Podcast history lessons.
- DI60Y's beginnings.
- The crews current local video project, Who Eats Brunch.
- How do you get free beer?
- REMOTE: More meta podcasting with the Married Gamers.
- Local celeb loving and bashing.
- Will DI60Y make a Swede this time?
- FONZY EYYS.
Everybody has regrets after this one. You should totally listen.

Things are looking pretty damn cool at the Sea Lion Cove being constructed at Fresno Chaffee Zoo. The exhibit's viewing area is starting to come into focus (where the dudes are standing under the poles) and it's slightly exciting to us AND the zoo's sea lions. Go measure Z, ey!?
