Tonight: 3 Doors Down, Daughtry and P.O.D., plus a new night for Jazz Hop

If you can’t find a live band in Fresno tonight, you’re looking in the wrong place.

Save Mart Center hosts a rock trifecta with 3 Doors Down, Daughtry and P.O.D. Be sure to check out my feature story on 3 Doors Down from last Friday’s Bee. I talk to guitarist Chris Henderson about the band’s “anonymous” fame. Tickets are still available. They cost $26.50-$46.50. Hit up Ticketmaster if you need some.

Fresno’s Jazz Hop — the monthly celebration of live jazz in dozens of venues — cuts itself from the ArtHop umbilical cord with a new second-Thursday-of-the-month calendar spot. Not much else has changed: still plenty of live music to see for free.

Says Jazz Hop coordinator Kate McKnight: “I’m seeking to highlight jazz music (and other genres) and the musicians by dedicating a night to hop just for music. ArtHop is so big now, and people couldn’t get around to see or experience all that they want to.” Tonight’s Jazz Hop is a bit smaller because of the holidays, she says. The schedule is below.

There’s nothing to do in Fresno.

Thank you, Mike! Hope to see lots of people out hopping including you.
