Tesla, The Used and Lamb of God — the downtown theater circuit is bout to have a rockin’ week of concerts.
Tesla is playing tonight at Warnors Theatre — and, nope, tickets are not sold out. The band is best known for its work in the late 80s and early 90s, including the hit single “Signs.” Tickets cost $32.50.
Thursday night brings us a date with screamo rockers The Used. The band has been through Fresno previously on the Taste of Chaos and Vans Warped tours. This time The Used is at the Crest Theatre with The Bled, Alesana, Drop Dead Gorgeous and others. Tickets cost $27.
The Crest will also be rockin’ hard on Sunday, as metal band Lamb of God makes a tour stop. Remember them from their opening spot on the Metallica tour? Suicidal Tendencies is also on the bill. Tickets cost $37.50.
It’s not rock, but since we’re on the topic of theaters, I also gotta let you know about the Solid Gold Doo Wop show at Warnors on Sunday. It features 50s and 60s doo wop acts such as The Platters, The Tokens, The Chiffons and more. Tickets cost $35-$55.
As a whole, it’s nice to see these theaters functioning more as the mid-size concert venue Fresno is so thirsty for. Here’s hoping the shows keep coming.
