Bandgeek!: Blues, metal and 420 hip-hop

6547_552742894760570_857423017_nFirst off: Make time to get out to the Fresno Ideaworks Mini Makers Faire on Sunday. It’s one of those ahead-of-the-curve things that you may not understand now, but give it a few years. Everyone will be talking about it. That’s my take anyway.

You may also want to block out some time for all the great music events. So, let’s get to it. Once again, let us BANDGEEEEEEEEK!

TONIGHT (Thursday):
