Besides that thing in Clovis with all the bulls and cowboy hats …
1. RIDE YOUR TRIKE
Part one of a big local CD release weekend comes from Blake Jones & The Trike Shop, who are debuting “The Underground Garden” at Audie’s Olympic on Saturday. It’s more than just an album release though, it’s also the debut of a big collaborative art piece inspired by the album that more than a dozen local artists contributed to. Reminder: You can get a free download from the album from us.
2. GET WITH THE HYPE
The other big CD release is from 40 Watt Hype, who are at Tower Theatre on Saturday. “Push” is 40 Watt’s new album (free download here) and their show oughta be big — featuring breakdancers, a drum line, poets and more.
3. BE DURTY
Tonight you can see the big debut show for Durty Addiction, a new female DJ duo consisting of Disco Kitten and DJ Cookee. Why aren’t there more female DJs? That’s one of the questions we asked these ladies in their Artists You Should Know Q & A.
4. LET YOUR HAIR DOWN
The cast of the recent local production of “Hair” is presenting the show’s music in a rock concert form on Sunday night at Starline. So if you missed the production, or if you just really liked the music, here’s another chance.
5. GET WILD WITH LOCAL TWEEPS
Oh heck yes, we’re going to plug Fresno Tweetup Goes Wild one more time. It’s our after-hours party at Chaffee Zoo, with local music, food, beer, prizes, games and, of course, Fresno’s Twitter community. Read more about why the event in awesome in my column today. Plus, we’ve got a pretty rad afterparty scheduled at Palomino’s.
