The event served as the release party for Fierce Creatures’ new album, with nine other bands joining for a free, all-ages show in the heart of downtown Fresno. The crowd was big. People were raving all evening about it. It was, to put it simply, a big win for downtown and for the local music scene.
I’ll have some in-depth thoughts about the event to share later, but for now let’s celebrate the night in 140-character form.
