Plan your week right here. You’re welcome in advance.

SUBLIME: Word is tonight’s show at Rainbow Ballroom is sold out. Too bad, if you were lagging. There’s also an afterparty at Fulton 55. I hear you can still get tickets for Wednesday’s show in Bako too.

THE KNUX: A strong alternative tonight, especially if you’re a hip-hop fan, is The Knux show at Audie’s Olympic. It’s hip-hop with indie rock and electronica undertones. I dig, I dig.

NORTEC COLLECTIVE: Keeping going a nice helping of mid-week shows is Wednesday’s gig with Nortec Collective at Fulton 55. It’s Latin techno-meets-Norteno. The hype is big on this one.

SCARFACE: Scarface — the rap icon, not the movie character — is at Rome Nightclub on Thursday night. One of the most underrated rappers of all time? Definitely.

WU-TANG TRIBUTES AIN’T NOTHING TO EFF WIT: The Soulflower Group has another of its tribute nights lined up. This one focusing on the Wu-Tang Clan. If you’re not clearing your Friday right now, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.

SMOOTH GROVES: Keith Sweat + Isley Brothers = baby-making music Friday night at Save Mart Center. We’ll have a ticket giveaway later today.

ST. PADDY’S DAY: It’s one of the biggest bar nights of the year — and it falls on a Saturday this year. We’re going out on a limb to predict the green beer will be flowing aplenty. A bunch of fliers for that below.

KARAOKE FOR THE CAUSE 2.0: Wanna see some of your favorite local media peeps embarrass themselves sing karaoke? Head to Fulton 55 on Sunday. We heard good things about the first one. And if we learned anything about the “Major League” movies, it’s that the sequel is always more awesome.

Can’t believe how AMAZA-BALLS the quality of shows this week in Fresno are.
