Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

Other than wandering Vintage Days again, watching some bike polo, celebrating Record Store Day or hitting up the Dirty Dowdy anniversary party.

1. PARTY WITH OZOMATLI
Ozomatli is at Tower Theatre tonight, leading the a long list of top notch concerts in Fresno tonight. (More on that below). The boys from Ozo play funky Latin music with hip-hop undertones. They’re joined by local faves 40 Watt Hype. The combination should yield a great night of party music. [Tickets]

2. GET CRAZY WITH TECH N9NE
Underground rap icon Tech N9ne brings his outrageous persona to Warnors Theatre tonight. Note: The show was originally scheduled for Rome Nightclub, but it’s now going on all-ages style at Warnors. Tech is bringing a bunch of Strange Music cronies with him. [Tickets]

3. HEAR OUTERNATIONAL ROCK … AND MORE 4/20 TUNES
On-the-rise rockers Outernational return to Fresno to headline Fulton 55. The band has the socio-political energy of Rage Against the Machine, if that’s your thing. And it’s even worked with RATM guitarist Tom Morello. Cool, right? It’s another of the good shows tonight, of which there are many. We think today being 4/20 has something to do with that.











4. GET TRASHED
Saturday night’s Trashique is one of those great funky ideas that even someone like me who is not super fashion savvy can get behind. It’s an art/fashion show where everything is made from trash. Donald wrote much more about it here. [Tickets]

5. BE A PART OF MANA MANIA
Mana — the biggest Latin rock band in the world right now — headlines Save Mart Center on Sunday night. It’s gonna be a huge one, with tickets close to selling out. So hop to it, if you want ‘em. Before Fresno, Mana is playing two already-sold-out shows at Staples Center tonight and Saturday. [Tickets]

Two more things you should do:
1) Read today’s Bee..esp. the “A” section…I mean, goodness gracious…”Fresno Smacks Sprawl Upside the Head (at least in theory)”…was a great headline [loosely translated] to wake up to…and the sad, but nice-to-hear-him-remembered notice that Jonathan Frid (the original Barnabas of Dark Shadows) had passed, AND a bit on the Big Orange. It’s an issue of the Bee worth saving…like my front page up in my studio (really, ask my friends) from 1999: “BONADELLE PLEADS TO MAIL FRAUD”…cool, it was like Al Capone, right?

Number TWO!!!….Saturday is RECORD STORE DAY…go to Spinners in Fresno, or Velouria in Visalia—–they have special RECORD STORE DAY ONLY vinyl releases at independent stores. It’s way cool. Enjoy!

Hi , I really hope the real estate market is considerably better for 2012. I hope you and the loved ones have a well deserved and Merry Christmas and may 2012 to be a great year for you.
