>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+.

Fresno's video scene has changed a bit over the years. Back in the day good local video was so thin we actually felt compelled to post real estate vids' of Fresno homes and our own terrible video of shows that were actually shot sideways … with no audio.
There wasn't a ton a quality stuff to post so we'd just put up whatever.
Luckily now there are stellar sites like Gotta Love Fresno, Swede Fest and the kinda new Internet show Kim & Greg. Their latest effort, "Kim's Hairy Situation", is quite entertaining. Our beard got hella turned on while watching this:
We can't stop liking these Sounds & Sciences guys. We know it's not a widely recognized genre of music with the above 20 crowd but we think Sounds is as legit locally as Strange Vine, 40 Watt Hype, Rademacher, Fierce Creatures and so on… well, at least they will be someday.
Anyway, they've got a new video out, directed by Jordan Pulmano. Have a watch:
A fresh episode of Dorktown is here to start your new week off. It's maybe more local talk and cussing than you could want or need but it's free so suck it up. Seriously though, thanks for listening and tell your cool friends. They'll hear stuff like:
- New WWE tag team: Dork Town.
- Low budget marketing with $1 shamrocks.

Big Grand Opening for Twee today as they complete their bold move from Wishon Row to Downtown and The Warnors. Could this be a Wishon Row business trend? We know that Cafe Corazon loves Downtown and there is probably a spot open in the Warnors building… (just trying to start something).
Speaking of Grand Openings and moves, did you go to the brick and mortar version of Dusty Buns last night? Packed!
Exciting times for two of Fresno's hippest businesses.
