Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

5things613142Forget World Cup …

1. Woodward Park Shakespeare Festival
Forget “House of Cards.” Shakespeare perfected the whole political-intrigue thing. QUICK CORRECTION: Color me embarrassed. “Macbeth,” doesn’t open until Thursday. So, add it to next weekend’s events.

2. Father’s Day Blues Fest
Headliner is Johnny Rawls: An old-time road-warrior if there ever was one. He’s been on the road (pretty much constantly) since 1969.

3. “Austin and Ally” at Fresno Grizzlies
I haven’t kept up with my Disney stars since Hilary Duff, but Calum Worthy, who plays Dez on “Austin and Ally,” will be at the game.
4. Table Mountain Rancheria Pow-Wow
Here’s a part of our area’s cultural heritage that doesn’t get enough positive attention.

5. Fresno’s Greatest Hits: Comedy Edition
Yes, Fresno has a comedy scene that you should support.

And in case you missed this week’s BANDGEEK post …

1. King Buzzo
2. Harps
3. Strange Vine
4. Lance Canales and the Flood
5. Jazz Night at Tokyo Garden

New Wrinkles presents Rockin Through the Ages. 3 shows left for this almost sold out 17 show run at the Fresno City College Theater. Singing, dancing and music as they look at the Rock and Roll time machine. The cast is all over 55. See Donald Munro’s review in the Beehive. A great show for all ages.
