ORIGINAL POST: Dear people of Fresno who have ears: Friday night’s show at Fulton 55 is not one you’ll want to miss. It includes two of the best local bands currently on the scene — Strange Vine and Poor Man’s Poison, as well as SoCal band He’s My Brother She’s My Sister. You might recall that I sang the praises of them in the past.

On their own, I’d recommend HMBSMS. With Strange Vine and Poor Man’s Poison on the bill? This is stellar.
