Tonight: Ume, Ozmosis Happy Hour and more

If you’re looking for cool live music tonight, the place to be is Audie’s Olympic in the Tower, which hosts Austin rock band Ume, whom I’ve heard a lot of good things about. Two strong local bands back them up — Light Thieves, the new cool-indie-rockers-of-the-moment in Fresno and Style Like Revelators, a quality bluesy-rock band.


Hella shameless self promo here, but my Ozmosis Happy Hour #2 is tonight at Swiggs. There’s sports on the TVs, Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co’s “Steal the Shirt” night and lots of giveaways — including tickets for this weekend’s NOtown Roller Derby bout and Sergio Romo bobbleheads courtesy of the Fresno Grizzlies.

Here are a few more things you might dig happening tonight — including drag queen beer pong:

Dear Mike OZ, You have never been to a Light Thieves show have you? I’m pretty sure you have not. Why not come out tonight? We’ll put you on guest list. This way you can actually write a description with substance about the Light Thieves. Bland generalized journalism is not a healthy tactic if you are trying to promote this show. Thanks! =)

Nor is this a healthy tactic to promote your band. =)

Danielle says:

Hahaha…word. I’d have been pretty happy with the description you gave, even (especially?) if I assumed you’d never seen my band before.

It’s not like I write essays in these quick “tonight” posts.

Erica says:

I was out of place and spoke on my own thoughts, Mike. My apologies on behalf of Light Thieves

Greg says:

Wow. Given the attitudes on display, think I’ll skip the openers and show up on time for the headliner. :(

Jasmine says:

Oh c’mon, she misspoke and apologized. It’s understandable to be defensive about a project you’re passionate about when you feel it’s been maligned. Not that I’m saying it was. I guess “indie rockers of the moment” could be interpreted as “flash in the pan-ish”. Anyway, Light Thieves put on a great show, play great music, and are made up of genuinely cool/nice people. Two cents for what it’s worth.

For what it’s worth, my only intention was to compliment the band and say that they’re “hot” right now.

Jasmine says:

I think it’s worth a lot. I ended up going, and UME was AMAZING. Thanks for posting about it.
