Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

Enjoy yourselves, Fresno. I’ll be outta town.

1. GET MEATY
Tired of Top 40 club nights? Give Meatball Magic a try. Tonight is actually its five-year anniversary (congrats!) of playing indie, electro, new wave and more bi-weekly at The Red Lantern. If that’s not a good enough reason, how often do you party at Belmont and Maple?

2. SEE LEMON SUN SHINE
It’s a rad night of retro rock at Audie’s Olympic tonight. On the bill are L.A. band Lemon Sun and Seattle’s Curtains For You. Lemon Sun has a classic rock appeal to them, and Curtains For You include a little bit of ’60s pop sing-songy fun.

3. LOSE CONTROL
Underground hip-hop fans might wanna check out Babylon tonight, where San Diego group O.C.T./Outta Control makes a tour stop. They’ve got a little bit of a rock edge to them too. Also on the bill are locals Chuck Dimes and Iceman, both quality acts.

4. CHOOSE BETWEEN PECHA KUCHA AND LOOKEE LOO
The choice on Saturday is between Pecha Kucha and Lookee Loo — two events fueled by local creativity that we told you about yesterday. Both are happening at the same time (PK is at 4 p.m., LL is at 4:30 p.m.), so people are going to choose. Here’s a pretty funny video (with NSFW Language) with Lookee Loo contestant Brodiemash and Pecha Kucha host Travis Sheridan squaring off in a parking-garage debate.



5. RIDE THE LIGHTNING
Still tired of Top 40 club nights? Well, there’s a remedy on Sunday too. Audie’s Olympic has DJ Revol (aka Johnny Q) and DJ Bradley spinning. Worth noting: Bradley is playing a two-hour house set, something he hasn’t done in Fresno in a while. “[It] will be the first time in over a year playing a two-hour headlining set in my own town. NYC, SF, but not FAT in a YEAR,” Bradley says. “I’ve been having fun exploring other music (afrobeat, funk, soul, etc), but I’m jonesing to play a nice long house set!”

and start your Friday night out by coming over to Full Circle Brewery to support the good folks at Food Not Bombs. I’m hopin’ bunches of folks come out to enjoy the good food and music. Starts early: Food at 6:30, Shovelman kicks it off at 7.

Stephen says:

This post also worked as a ‘Best Flyers of the Week’ deal.

Loved the video, but wanted to see some underground MMA action between Brodie and Travis…my money being on Brodie, since Travis wouldn’t want to mess up his outfit.

Brodiemash is a punk. Just teasing. I would recommend everyone watch their back, Roque and I are itching for a bar brawl.

brodiemash says:

Eff the Bartender Challenge, we need Blogger Boxing for charity! Hmmm, what would the undercard look like for that?

Mike Oz says:

Yo Creative Fresno folk — what happened to Bartender Challenge? No mas?

brodiemash says:

I was wondering the same thing!

Still in the works. Always a good time.

@brodiemash, watch your back, jack!

Hey Mr. Mash, Show me a copy of your film permit Dude! BTW, good luck with Lookie Loo Two. I’m working the door at P. K. or I’d be there.
