When you’re not watching the World Cup …
So bust out the hair gel, get your spray tan proper and do whatever else you need to do to go Guido.
Admission costs $25 at the door, $20 in advance and it all starts at 8 p.m.
Are you rolling your eyes right now? OK, read on.
2. SEE AN OSCAR WINNER
If you fancy yourself a bit more cultured, then head over to Tower Theater for tonight’s Fresno Filmworks screening of “The Secret In Their Eyes,” which is this year’s Oscar winner for best foreign language film. It runs at 5:30 p.m. and
8 p.m. 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $10 or $8 for students and seniors. Here’s a review from The Bee’s Rick Bentley. Spoiler alert: He gave it an A.
3. SEE SANGRE, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH SANGER
Sangre, which is an L.A. metal band, not Fresno’s neighbor to the Southeast, headlines Starline on Saturday night. The show also signals the return of local band Nativeburn, plus a chance to see Hate FX, which is another really good metal band.
4. HEAR THE FRESNO PHIL ROCK
Donald’s not here this week, but if he were, I know he’d tell you go to see The Fresno Philharmonic’s return to the Woodward Park Amphitheatre. So consider this my surrogate endorsement. This year, the Phil partners with rock ‘n’ roll band Flash Cadillac. Expect a number of oldies — with a symphony twist. Here’s more on the event from today’s 7. Ticket info here. Ray Appleton is supposed to be there too. But don’t let that sour you on going. On the plus: You can check out those crazy dope port-a-potties.
5. CONFIDE IN KUPPAJOE
For the all-ages rock crowd, the show to be at this weekend is alt/hardcore rock band Confide playing at Kuppajoe on Saturday. These guys are on the Warped Tour all summer, and are playing Fresno as a CD release party for their new one, “Recover.” Confide sold out its last time at Kuppajoe, so expect a good crowd.
