[Insert opening rant here. Setup the weekend music options for Fresno. Write funny lines. If unable to come up with funny lines just cuss a few times because people like seeing words like "shitballs". Then make sure to end rant with "It's time to BANDGEEEEEK!]
CYC: Southern California hardcore thrash outfit: Creatures. If you're a fan of Slayer or Hatebreed you'll probably like these dudes. Also playing is Fatal Birth, Rise!, Running Scared and more. Show by Religious Appeal:
KUPPAJOES: Interesting band for Kupppa, this feels like a Audie's show. Fort Smith, Arkansas band White Collar Sideshow is playing and they are as into the theatrics as much as the music. Also, Levi The Poet, Drag Me 2 Shore and Operazoo.
AUDIE'S OLYMPIC: First Glen Delpit will do his Friday night thing from 7-9. Then, a birthday party you don't have to buy a present for. Plus there's beer. Hells yes. Performing is Death Alley Motor Cult, Hammer Down Sindrum, Low Crawl and From The Fallen. Details:
FULTON 55: They say that the imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so Creative Fresno should be flattered as hell that the Soulflower Group has taken their Blender idea and pushed it up a notch. Music community types getting together for drinks and music. Details:
THE BEL-TOWER: If you're not offended by the any of the following band names, then you may have no soul. Black Fag - The "Absolutely Fabulous" Tribute to Black Flag! The Misshits (featuring members of the Midnight Howlers, Giddy Ups and Sci Fi Nightmares). Plus Donkey Punch, Dead Beats, Cousin Fister, and the Thirtyfuckingtwos. Really:
