Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

After you see Fresno State lose to Boise tonight. Yeah, I said it …

1. SWING WITH YOUR VOODOO DADDY
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy headlines Warnors Theatre tonight. You remember them best as one of the big names from the swing movement of the late 90s. Just ’cause swing fizzled out, doesn’t mean they did. Check out my interview to learn more. Ticket info and whatnot here. Great chance to see the beautiful Warnors Theatre, if you haven’t been in a while.

2. TAME THAT PUSSYCAT
Remember the debacle last time Faster Pussycat was supposed to play in Fresno? The promoter never paid the band, so they never played and it was lots and lots of drama. Well, Faster Pussycat is back in Fresno tonight at Starline. Different promoter this time around, so hopefully there’s no drama.



3. BRING MORE RUCKUS
If last week’s sold-out Ghostface Killah show didn’t satisfy your Wu-Tang Clan fix, another couple of members from the famous hip-hop group visit this weekend. Visalia’s The Cellar Door hosts Inspectah Deck and Masta Killa on Saturday. Swarm up, Wu fans!



4. HOP ABOARD THE ‘I DO NOT EXIST’ BANDWAGON
I told you yesterday that I Do Not Exist is one of my favorite new local bands, even gave you a free MP3 to sample. There’s a good chance to see them, Saturday night at Starline, as part of a whole bill that’s full of talent.



5. GET YOUR BODY ROCKED
My favorite DJ duo in town — F-Plus and Don D — are back together doing another installment of their Body Rock party Saturday night at Veni Vidi Vidi. It promises to be funky dope.

What time’s the I Do Not Exist show? Unless I’m blind, the flier doesn’t say. I’m guessing 9pm?

Mike Oz says:

I think that’s a safe guess.

Stephen says:

Doors for Do Not Exist = 9pm.

Doors for Faster Pussycat = 8:30pm.

And before Faster Pussycat is monthly Pub Quiz at Starline Grill at 6pm (be early, it fills UP).

I just don’t get why anyone would book Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at Warnor’s. Who wants to just sit and listen to a world famous dance band?!? I have a feeling they would have fit in well at the new Fulton 55 – big dance space, about the right size for 300 people.

Danielle says:

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is one of my all-time favorite swing bands – to DANCE to. I agree with your comment wholeheartedly and have been scratching my head about that choice of venue for them ever since I heard about it. I would definitely be going IF it was at a venue with dance space. Obviously, Fulton 55 isn’t open yet, but hopefully it will be soon and I agree it seems like a promising place, all around! Cheers~!

Stephen says:

From what I heard, Warnor’s was a hollow swing palace last night – only about 200 people there.

And from what I heard, BBVDD swung the place hard. Very appreciated sound from everyone there – all 200 of them.

Brad says:

Actually, not a bad crowd at all,
Not a full house,
but not sparse either, and extremely enthusiastic and appreciative. The band rocked and loved the attention and everyone getting up on their feet and participating.
