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:
Southern Cali reggae and hip-hop act, UpRooted. Plus Papafish (so-cal ska) and local backing from Checkered Past and The White Glove Service.
They come all the way from England. They've played their Brit alt-indie rock with the likes of the Silversun Pickups and Vampire Weekend. They are Animal Kingdom. They are playing with Atlas Genius from Australia – we've heard that's very far from Fresno too.
Cool Animal Kingdom video:
Good stuff happening this weekend. Let's do our research before we head out. Let's Bandgeeeeek!!:
TOKYO GARDEN: We have only three weeks left until we geek-out on FUSE Fest #5! This show isn't part of the main festival but it is put on by the Fresno Urban Sound Experience. It's show one in a series of shows that will raise money to make an album of Fresno bands covering other Fresno musician's music. Cool stuff. Playing live tonight and helping out is That Guy Kevin, Omar Nare', Blake Jones & the Trike Shop and The Overdubs:
FULTON 55: People have been saying not to miss Strawberry Jam…just sayin'. We hear Sci-Fi Caper and Francis Ward are pretty good too. We also hear that *Surprise Guest* sucks shit:
AUDIE'S OLYMPIC: Yes, Nashville Pussy, [insert lame pussy reference here] will be rocking Audie's tonight. Local rock provided by The Backstabbers, Blue Crown and Thrawtle:
THE LAMP POST: Check out Not Perfect Humans with Whatever The Matter. [$?, 8pm, 21+]
THAI PALMS: Fresno's Rubiks Theory:
STARLINE: That Wild Bunny just won't go away, he still thinks he can rock. Maybe he can, who knows. Certainly Fuse Box can rock some AC/DC and it doesn't hurt that it's free:

AT Fulton 55: Welcome the return of Outernational. Rolling Stone likes them, AP likes them, hell even Houston likes them, Fresnans are bound to. Joined by Fresno's Basura! More show info can be found here.
How about a free download of their song "Empty Lives"? A song from their EP Future Rock produced by Tom Morrelo (RAGTM) no less. Listen/download: Empty Lives.
AT Audie's Olympic: More International stuff, this one is fucking metal with Spain's Calibre Zero:
Spain does metal:
This Friday at Tokyo Garden, FUSE Fest (you know, the folks with the big local music festival coming next month) start a series of shows. They are to help fund an album idea that FUSE has been kicking around for a few years. The idea is to have Fresno bands cover a song from another Fresno band. Record it. Make an album. Kick local music ass.
Sounds cool to us. Friday's local acts playing in support of this Fresno comp' idea is
Starts around 9, $5 cover, 21+.
