CMAC (aka the Community Media Access Collaborative) has partnered with this year’s Fresno Urban Sound Experience (aka F.U.S.E. Fest) to produce a pre-festival showcase, 8 p.m. tonight at Fulton 55. The event is open to the public for a $2 donation (money that will help pay the bands), but because it’s being created for air (it will broadcast live on Comcast 93 and AT&T 99), it won’t be the typical concert experience. The bands (Werebear, Actress, Cockamamie Jamie and Blake Jones + Friends) will play truncated sets, interspersed with interviews from yours truly. If you’re a local music fan-boy (or girl), you should to show up (or tune in).
The festival runs Sept. 20-21 in downtown Fresno. This year’s lineup and more can be seen at FUSEFest.com.
