1. LAUGH WITH THE GUITAR GUY
Brian “Guitar Guy” Haner is at Fulton 55 on Saturday night. His music-meets-comedy schtick has taken him on tour with Jeff Dunham and made him a frequent guest on “The Bob & Tom Show.” To get a taste of his comedy, swing by his site and listen to his “Kardashian Song.”
2. LOVE SOME HIP-HOP WITH MURS
Indie hip-hop hero Murs returns to Visalia’s The Cellar Door on Sunday night as part of his “Hip-Hop & Love” tour. He’s long been one of my favorite rappers and I can attest he puts on a great show. He’s joined by super producer Ski Beatz and a long list of rising rap talent, including Da$h, who is the nephew of Dame Dash.
3. CRUISE TO THE AUTO SHOW
This weekend is the annual Central California Auto Show — three days’ worth of 2012 model cars, concept cars and vehicles of the future. It’s happening at the Fresno Convention and Entertainment Center today-Sunday. Get all the info you need right here.
4. SEE SOME GABBA GABBA
The common theme of weekend entertainment? Gabba Gabba! Kids TV fave Yo Gabba Gabba brings its live stage show to Save Mart Center today for two shows and Ramones tribute band the Gabba Gabba Heys is at Starline on Saturday night. No relation between the two — we’re pretty sure. One note for the music nerds out there: The Yo Gabba Gabba show includes appearances by rap icon Biz Markie and indie-dance band Yacht.
5. GET SPLOTCHED
Saturday night’s show with The Aliso Project at The Bel-Tower should be a good one. But that’s not the only reason it’s on the list. Word is it’s prolific local promoter Laura Splotch’s last show. Not sure what the story is — but send her off in style.
