Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

While starting down the “20 ways to be a better Fresnan” checklist.

1. MAKE YOURSELF EXPENDABLE
Laid-back reggae/rockers The Expendables are playing what’s probably the biggest gig of the weekend, tonight at Fulton 55. If you like Slightly Stoopid, you’ll like them. We hear it’s closed to selling out. So don’t slack. [More]


2. DO SOME MAGIC ON THE DANCEFLOOR
Bad news: Meatball Magic — the long-running indie, electro, new wave dance night at The Red Lantern — is ending in February. Which means you only have two remaining chances to party with the Meatball Magic crew. The first being tonight. [More]

3. FIND OUT WHOSE BOOTY IT IS
If you listen to B95 or Q97, you’ve surely heard the Jonn Hart song “Who Booty.” It’s a bubbling hit for the Bay Area R & B singer, who finds himself in Fresno on Saturday night at Club Eva (ya know, the old Club Rome). Perhaps we can finally get to bottom of the mystery. Hart must have figured out whose booty it is by now, right? My money is on Lennay Kekua. [More]

 

4. GO ON A SIXTIES-INSPIRED TRIP
Allow me to throw out a recommendation for Ash Reiter, a San Francisco band with a fun ’60s pop-inspired sound. Or, as the band puts it: “Ash Reiter brings you pop tunes that bring to mind a modern Fleetwood Mac rift with soaring vocal harmonies, catchy guitar lines and a rhythm section that wil make you wanna jump.” See them Saturday at Audie’s Olympic with locals Light Thieves, Former Friends of Young Americans and 123 Death. [More]

5. GET ENERGIZED
Want one more chance to dance? Head over to the Fresno Fairgrounds for Energize 2013, an annual Fresno EDM party dating back 15 years. Notably, it includes L.A. DJ Circuit, who played at last year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. [More]

BONUS: A few more eclectic events for your weekend consideration.

Hi mike, the Jonn Hart concert @ Club Eva this Saturday is definitely a priority one thing to do this weekend. Its followed by the Hot Asian Night on Sunday. Club Eva is now here to stay and entertain Fresno dwellers to great music and dance all night long.

Hi Mike thanks for keeping everyone posted about the important things to do this week. You make life easy by narrowing down our choices to the very best. It reminds me of the multiple choice answers at high school. Fresno Bee keep up the good work.
