Besides sneaking your way into that George Strait show that’s hella sold out.
1. GO SEE A SHOW AT FULTON 55
You can see another country legend (sorta!) — as Johnny Cash tribute Cash’d Out plays tonight. They’re legit — as in they can make Cash’s daughter cry. Then Saturday, S.F.’s Nicki Bluhm comes to play some fun folky music for you. She’s legit too. [More]
2. ALL THAT AND A BOWL OF GUMBO
With the Super Bowl in New Orleans and Mardi Gras around the corner, the stage is set well for Saturday’s Gumbo Throwdown at Vineyard Farmer’s Market. Go taste concoctions from a handful of local chefs and vote for your favorite. [More]
3. SERIOUSLY, CHECK OUT POOR MAN’S POISON
Not to be super duper repetitive, but Poor Man’s Poison is a big deal right now. They won a huge national contest and are making the rounds celebrating and sharing their sound. Catch them Saturday night at Crossroads. Ask ‘em to buy you a beer. They’ve got the money. [More]
4. DON’T MISS SIR SLY
Tonight’s Sir Sly show at The Cellar Door in Visalia could prove to be like that time Foster the People played Visalia and you didn’t go. (It’s my last Five Things — I had to reference that again). Sir Sly sounds poised for some good things. Below is the band’s current jam, which I love. [More]
5. HAVE A ‘SUPER’ WEEKEND
And finally, Super Bowl. Two things: If you’re a football fan who likes to go to the club, there’s a 49er-themed bash at Club Eva on Saturday night. Despite the flier, I can assure that Colin Kaepernick will not be there. Or, if you’re a lady who is like “Eff this Super Bowl,” then go see male strippers on Sunday. Really, I don’t care what you do, so long as the Niners win. [More | More]
