Ugh… While Fulton reeling in Dino Jr. is quite impressive (even if it’s one of those desperate “we need money” tours), that Fauxchella lineup is just a painful reminder of how far people of the Central Valley need to travel away from Fresno in order to see decent bands live. Orgy? Really?! When was their last album released? Like 10 years ago? Oh yeah, and they suck. And it’s all sponsored by a radio station whose playlist is currently in a five-song rotation of fun., Mumford & Sons, The Offspring, Bush, and Toadies…. none of the festival acts seem to be on that list.
