The Catacomb Party. It truly was a night to remember. Dead In 60 Years put together this stellar video that captures the night rather well. Enjoy this like it's the last video you'll ever see because we'll all be Dead In 60 Years:
Point is, it's going to be a crazy-ass time out there. The Artourage has been very generous with the ticket give-aways for Rock Expo. So generous they want a couple Fresnan Readers to go. So, to maybe win a pair of tickets, just email us something, you know whatever, to email@example.com and you'll be entered. We'll pick the winner using our Randomizer and email him or her Thursday night.
If you don't trust your luck, you can always buy some tickets here.
>>At STARLINE: Ray Moore's "Rhythm & Rhyme" this week, is featuring Eva Scow's soul and funk band The Experience - with Ray Moore (Drums & Vocals), Mike Taylor (Guitar) and Pat Olvera (Bass). Plus, a DJ led after-party! [$10, 9pm, 21+]
UPDATE! 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.
ORIGINAL POST 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.
We normally aren't together enough to post about comedy stuff happening in Fresno but this one looks good. Mo Collins and Rebecca Corry are performing Downtown at Club One. Great room, great comedians, buy some tickets and check'em out tonight!
The Fresnan is a blog drunk on Fresno's sweet sweet booze.
We like posting about local music and random Fresno culture junk. We like Downtown, tri-tip, South of Shaw battles, tamales and remembering when there was a fig orchard at Herndon & Palm. We like to occasionally go to River Park but tell people we never go there.
