TONIGHT: Mat Kearney is at Fulton 55. The show was sold out, but a few tickets opened up. No guarantees now. But good for you, Fresno, selling out the show. It’s just the start of a great week of live music. Keep reading.
ELECTRIC GUEST: Tuesday is Electric Guest playing Visalia Fox Theatre as part of the TOMS Shoes One Day Without Shoes event. I’ve been co-signing these guys for a while, so you know it’s got my stamp on it. Strange Vine also opens and it’s free. Can’t go wrong there, folks. I’ll be DJing between sets, so come say hi.
THE STONE FOXES: Valley bred rockers The Stone Foxes return home to play Fulton 55 for the first time. They’re bringing with them Hacienda, whose upcoming album is produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Fancy.
ALSO IN TOWN THIS WEEK: Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons (Tuesday at Audie’s Olympic), Wayne “The Train” Hancock (Thursday at Audie’s), Big Black Delta (Friday at The Cellar Door), The Speakers on Blast hip-hop show with E-40, The Game, Slaughterhouse and more (Friday at Save Mart Center) and Satisfaction 50 and Joe Taylor (Saturday at Tower Theatre).
PLAY BALL WITH BIG HATS: In the non-music realm, the big events of the week are the Fresno Grizzlies‘ home opener Friday at The Chuk (cross your fingers for no rain!) and Big Hat Days out in Clovis. Both run through the weekend.
CLASSIC: The annual Tower Classic Car Show is Saturday in the Tower District. Starting waxing the hot rod.
