THE WAILERS: If you dig the sounds of Bob Marley — and really who doesn’t — then about the closest you’re going to get to a live show is seeing his band The Wailers, who play Sunday at Tower Theatre.

ALSO IN TOWN THIS WEEK: Latin alt-rock group Zoe (Tues. at Fulton 55), The Fling w/ local faves Strange Vine (Thurs. at Fulton 55), hip-hoppers Rej3ctz (Friday at Tulare Fairgrounds) and Aaron Lewis of Staind (Fri. at Visalia Fox).

BROTHER LUKE & EVERYBODY HE KNOWS: Indie vet Brother Luke isn’t just bringing his Comrades to Tuesday night’s CD release/tour kick-off show at Audie’s Olympic. He’s bringing a handful of Fresno friends — 14 people total, including musicians from bands such as Rademacher, Achievement House and Fay Wrays.

IT ALWAYS GROWS BACK: Punk vets It’ll Grow Back — featuring our blogging friend Famous Whitewater — have a CD record release party this week too. It’s happening Friday at Tokyo Garden.

MORE JOURNEY: If it seems like the music of Journey is everywhere — then I’m happy to know I’m not the only one who thinks that right now. Here’s another example: You can catch popular local tribute band Midnight Run headlining Tower Theatre on Saturday night.

ALL LAUGHS: On-the-rise comic Ian Edwards is at Starline on Saturday night, and a lot of the local comedy folks are gushing over this one. Here’s one routine of his I especially dig.

Famous says:

FYI: The It’ll Grow Back show is a record release. It’s a 6-song, 7-inch. They’ll come with digital download cards for the tech savy.

Mike Oz says:

Ooops. My bad. I adjusted.

I emailed you an updated flyer for Friday night’s Binational Rock Concert that I just got from F55, includes The Burners on it since we were invited to be special guests of some sort…it’s FREE people! Come check it out!
