SNOOP DOGG: Bow-wow-yippee-yo-yippee-yay — West Coast rap hero Snoop Dogg is at Rainbow Ballroom on Wednesday night, playing for the 18+ crowd. Tickets and info here.

MICHAEL BUBLE: Crooner Michael Buble is, in effect, rounding up the women of Fresno and bringing them to Save Mart Center on Sunday. The pop singer created quite a rush for tickets in our recent giveaway. Sorry, it’s way too late, but you can still buy them at the Save Mart Center box office or via Ticketmaster.

(Fri at The Cellar Door), Javelin (Sat. at The Cellar Door w/ Fashawn), As Artifacts (Sat. at The Bel-Tower) and Tyrone Wells (Sat. at Chowchilla High)

A MURAL PARTY: Teen mural-makers The Muralistics unveil and celebrate their newest piece — at 1724 Broadway St. — at a Friday evening event. More info here.

TO EAT: Have a tasty weekend between the 8th annual Fig Fest (Saturday at Fresno State), Chaffee Zoo’s yearly all-you-you-can-eat Ice Cream Zoofari (Saturday at the zoo) and the revival of the Tower District Neighborhood BBQ (Sunday at St. Therese Church).

WARNING: Barney is in town today. Don’t tell your kids.

RELEASED: Local hard rockers From the Fallen celebrate the release of their new album Friday night at Starline.

SCREAM: System of a Down fans, head’s up. You too, documentary fans. KVPT is showing the Armenian genocide documentary “Screamers” at 8:30 p.m. Friday and it has filmmaker Carla Garapedian coming to host. It features SOAD and its music.


A bunch more local happenings for the week ahead of us. Enjoy!

No mention of Movies in the Park sponsered by City of Fresno??? This Friday showing Toy Story 3 and giving away school supplies

Mike Oz says:

Yeah, not everything is in there. It’s mostly special events, not so much the weekly stuff.

CMT’s Les Miserables at Fresno Memorial Auditorium. The show is fantastic and deserves to be sold out!

Chris S says:

Nice… Kocky’s is already sticking it out there!

Stephen says:

Blah. Whatever.

There’s nothing to do in Fresno.

PS: Carla Garapedian = HIGHLY respected journalist/filmmaker. I wish KVPT had a meet and greet for us regular folk to sit and talk with her for about 2 hours each. She must have amazing stories plus she’s easy on the eyes.
