Besides telling your mom you love her.
1. BREAK INTO A VAULT
Experience the forbidden at tonight’s performance from the Valley Burlesque Society. Not only is the show a bit of naughty fun, but its location adds to the voyeurism. It’s in the vault of the old Security Bank Building aka the current Pacific Southwest building. So you’re basically seeing things you shouldn’t in a place you normally shouldn’t be. How wickedly fun.

2. HAVE A FINAL SPRING FLING
I hesitate to even say it’s spring anymore, considering the temperatures we’ve had this week. That’s why you should probably get in one final fling before we hit the 100s. And the Rotary Amphtheatre at Woodward Park has just the event on Saturday. It’s the annual Spring Fling, another of those outdoor social parties with food, drinks, music, a fashion show and more. [Tickets]
3. SLITHER INTO AUDIE’S
Chicago soul/hip-hop artist Ssssnake has won over many of the hipsters in Fresno. He’s brought his spunky and funky live show to town before, and I hear chaos ensued. The good kind. He’s back to headline Audie’s Olympic on Satruday. Expect much of the same. Ssssnake is somewhere between Chromeo and Mayer Hawthorne, which isn’t a bad place to be. [More]
4. SEE WHAT’S BREWING IN CLOVIS
I feel it’s my duty to tell you all about beer festivals nearby. So you’re on notice that Saturday is the second annual Clovis Brewfest. Thirty beers are available to sample. There’s live music. Etc. Etc. But did I say beer? ‘Cause there’s beer.
5. MAKE PEACE WITH YOUR WEEKEND
Party-starting Arizona rock band Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers visits Fulton 55 on Sunday. Maybe take your mom? The band has a bit of attitude and a definite love for tequila. Before The Peacemakers, Clyne played in The Refreshments. And a bit of trivia here: He did the theme song for “King of the Hill.” [Tickets]
