Win tickets to He’s My Brother She’s My Sister

He’s My Brother She’s My Sister are no strangers to Fresno. The Los-Angeles band (fronted by brother-sister duo Robert and Rachel Kolar) have played here often in the past few years. Its brand of “flamboyant folk” — there’s a tap-dancing drummer — is catching on with audiences and earned the band spots at big-time music festivals like Bonnaroo, Firefly and Austin City Limits. Just off a successful tour of the UK tour (sold-out shows in London, ya’ll), the band has embarked on its first headling tour of the US. It will be the last before they start work on a new album. Which means…see them now.

As in tonight, at Fulton 55 with Song Preservation Society and Strange Vine. This same lineup was an advanced sell-out in Santa Barbara. So it should be packed.

I’ve seen them here in Fresno the last two times they were here. I like their music, and they put on a lively, personable show. Also, I’m a little smitten with the tap-dancing drummer. She’s delightfully animated and steals the show for me.

This band fuels my fire to get up and go at 5 am clinicals in Visalia!! I’ve been studying and in the books for 3 months straight and haven’t seen any of my lovely Fresno friends or been able to see any bands playing at F55, It’d be a treat to de-stress,rock out and enjoy some good ‘ol fashioned Fresno fun.

cami says:

I really want to go tonight this is my favorite venue and one of my favorite bands I’ve ever seen I had a great experience last time I was there and swore I would never miss another show and I move mountains to see strange fine whenever they’re close to the valley but I’m totally broke and basically life sucks right now I don’t have a job I’m looking for work everyday and burn out the wind is out of my sails I have poison ouk and an infected tooth and I’m not feeling so hot today but I’m trying every way I can to get there tonight because I know it will inspire me and motivate me to get out there tomorrow and hit the pavement again for work these bands recharge my batteries they lift me up and fill up my spirit I’ve been looking forward to it all week and I don’t think I’m going to be able to make it happen unless I get some free tickets please please please pick me plus I have to come up with the gas to drive from Visalia but I’m willing to do what I have to do to get there if I can get some tickets. Also my mom just got sentenced to 3 years in prison for her drug addiction and to honor my freedom and my choice is to not live that lifestyle I want to go see a great band for my gratitude of not being locked up. Thanks guys….cami

jamie ockerman says:

Because I’ve been trying to see both bands separately for months, failing to succeed every time and now they’re playing together on the same night at the same great venue!!!

Katie Blunt says:

I want, nay NEED to see this show tonight. My husband has been working 1 billion hours a week recently and I’ve been on my own with our three little boys, who are acting like drug-crazed lemurs. See? I super duper need to get out. Pick me!

Conor Miles says:

Because 15 dollars is 15 dollars…

Eloy Villegas says:

I would like a ticket because this show is going to be rad as f#^*k & at the moment I’m broke as f%€k. Tank you tank you tank you & by tank you I mean thank you.

Arturo says:

Tobie and Ian single-handedly set me on my quest for awesome local music. And the stand-up bassist from HMBSMS rocks so hard till his fingers bleed. This will be a night of energy!

Wynter Erickson says:

I’ve been a fan of Strange Vine since I saw them at Art Hop months ago and I would love to see and support them again. This show’s flyer has recently introduced me to He’s My Brother She’s My Sister and I would really really really love to hear them live. My night is free and I would really like to join everyone at the show. :)

Claudia says:

Am I too late for this comment??? Just saw this….regardless seems like an awesome show to attend, strange vine is off the hook! Always enjoy them.

Cheyanne says:

Although I’m late at commenting it’s because I take my work as serious as I do my love for dancing :)
