When you’re not hiding from that looming 106-degree heat …
1. GO GLOBAL
Ana Tijoux enters Fresno this weekend with a good amount of buzz. She had the single of the week on iTunes this week for her “1977.” She’s a female rapper from South America who has been performing in big cities all over the country — and she’s in Fresno on Sunday, playing at Frank’s Place. Yay us.
2. GET YOUR KUPPAJOE
Kuppajoe has a good one tonight for you all-agers, and some of you older indie rock fans. Portland group Archeology is here, sharing with stage with our Central coastal neighbors Lakes. Both bands sound really good, so you might wanna give this one a shot.
3. ROCK LIKE IT’S THE ’80S
It’s a full-on ’80s rock revival down at Frank’s Place, which hosts the Triple Threat tour with Faster Pussycat, L.A. Guns and John Corabi (you know, the other Motley Crue singer). Rock on, dudes and dudettes.
4. JOIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Earlier this week I told you all about the new all-ages venue in the Tower District, Neighborhood Cafe. Now I’m just gently reminding you that the show is tonight. Also, I wanted to post the cool flier again.
5. LAMP AT THE POST
The guys at downtown bar The Lamp Post have been steadily trying to get more and more involved in the local music scene. Tonight, as part of its ongoing concert series, The Lamp Post has a night with local rapper Populus and his touring buddies Abel Abilities and The Late Uncle Disco. In addition to it being a fun Friday night show, I really wanted to post Pop’s new promo photo, which I think is awesome.
