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.
Sorry everyone, this contest is closed. Sorry to everyone but April that is as she won the pair of Black Keys tickets. Thanks for all the emails. Don't feel so bad because we haven't gotten our tickets yet either. Maybe we can get April to take us.
If you at all like The Black Keys then you know they're coming to Fresno's Save Mart Center October 1st (with Tegan and Sara). It will be a damn fine night. If you're a hardcore fan then you've already got your tickets. If you're a regular Fresnan, you haven't gotten around to getting any. Well, your Procrastinating Fresnan ways might pay off.
The SMC is being cool to Fresnan readers and letting us give away a pair of tickets to the show. No creative hoop to jump through to enter our little contest. Just email something to firstname.lastname@example.org and you are good.
Winner will be chosen randomly. Contest will end Friday night at Midnight. One email per household (we have our ways of knowing you sneaky guy). We're GIVING away something so promise to still be cool if you don't win. Winner will be emailed by Saturday (July 21st) and will pickup their tickets at SMC Will Call.
Once you've stolen a glass from Fresno Brewing Company, you're all set to begin your weekend of comedy and music. It's time to… BANDGEEK!!

FRESNO BREWING COMPANY/FULTON MALL: Biggest show Catacomb Party we've seen all year and one of the more unique ones. The Fulton Mall (out front of FBC) will be turned into, basically, a music festival venue. Lots of good bands, lots of good beer, highlighted by a performance from the Firece Creatures. Plus music from Fast Car, Strange Vine, The Slient Comedy, a reunion for the Argyle Pimps, Achievement House, Coast Jumper, Animal Eyes and Bell Thieves. And did you get that it's free and open to all ages? Yep:

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:
Support Tioga Sequoia Brewing because they are big supporters of Craft Beer, Downtown Fresno and Fresno podcasts!

THAI PALMS: Homegrown trippled hopped rock from This Planet Prelude, For The Record and No Cause For Alarm:
