2. WELCOME FASHAWN HOME: Local rapper made good Fashawn is playing his first Valley show in a loooong time — and it’s in Visalia at Howie & Son’s on Saturday night. It oughta be a nice warm-up for this.
3. LAUGH IT UP: Thai Palms — which has become a vibrant spot for stand-up comedy over the past year — continues its Knights of Comedy series with tonight and Saturday with back-to-back shows from Jason Collings and Brent Morin.
4. FIND SOLACE IN THE TOWER: A disco night? Hey, it’s a three-day weekend, go get busy. This one features a bunch of awesome local DJs at Palomino’s.
5. JERK IT IN THE PARK: Pardon us while we giggle at that one. OK, so Sunday brings the Skinny Jeans Jam at Woodward Park, a day of hip-hop for the teenage kids who listen to New Boyz, wear those skinny jeans and do the Jerk dance. Cold Flamez are performing, as other rap and dance crews. There’s even a dance contest — a jerk off, if you will.
