1. DO SOMETHING HALLOWEEN-ISH
With that unfortunate Halloween-falling-on-a-Wednesday thing, this weekend promises to be full of slutty nurses roaming your neighborhood bar. We’ll be back with a full rundown of Halloween happenings, but here are a few top options. The party at The Standard is pretty big each year. King Sugar‘s Eureka Burger show makes the list off the flier alone — but they’ve got cool ska flavors too. And who doesn’t want to parade their dog around the Tower District?
2. BE A WINO
The Fall Wine Cornucopia is Saturday at Chukchansi Park — redemption for all you wine lovers who have been getting gypped with all the beer festivals lately. You go drink your wine, drink so much wine you stomp on grapes and can’t keep the samples straight at the tri-tip challenge. [More]
3. TAKE A HUNKA HUNKA BURNING LOVE
Our local Elvis impersonator Jeremy Pearce is used to performing in theaters and casinos, we assume for little old ladies who foam at the mouth when he shakes those hips. Tonight, though, he’s doing something different. He plays the divier digs of music club Audie’s Olympic with Audie’s Naughty Angels (i.e. women not wearing a lot of clothes) and a Japanese rockabilly band. This HAS to be the way The King after-partied. [More]
4. WATCH OUT FOR FLYING DERBY GIRLS
A bunch of local ladies are dressing up this weekend as hard-hitting, fast-skating bad-asses — but that has nothing to do with Halloween. It’s just another bout for NOtown Roller Derby, who square off with Unforgiven Roller Girls out of Bakersfield on Saturday at the Fresno Fairgrounds. [More]
5. BE THEIR VALENTINE
Chick-rock trio Hunter Valentine arrive in Fresno the same week that “Collide & Conquer,” the band’s new album, hit stores. You might recognize these ladies from Showtime’s “The Real L Word.” They’re playing Sunday night at Audie’s Olympic and word is (aka Audie told me) tickets have been selling fast for this one. [More]
