Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

After you read my “farewell” column from today’s Bee.

1. FIND YOUR LATIN R & B GROOVE AT FULTON 55
Latin R & B group Tierra, 40-year vets of the music biz, are a perfect fit for this oldies-leaning town. Fresno music lovers should gobble up their Saturday night show at Fulton 55. Also: My favorite show poster of the week. [More]

Concert Watch: Steve Miller Band, Huey Lewis, Morris Day and more

SMB_web.gifTable Mountain Casino’s concert lineup has seen two additions in the past two weeks — Steve Miller Band and Huey Lewis.

Miller, well known for songs such as “The Joker” and “Fly Like an Eagle,” will play at the Friant casino on July 10. Tickets don’t go on sale until May 28, but when they do, they’ll cost $25, $35 and $45.

Lewis — with his band, The News, in tow — will perform at Table Mountain on Aug. 29. Tickets cost $25-$45 and are on sale July 16.

If you’re a big fan, you might want to circle those date on the calendar because tickets for Table Mountain Casino concerts sometimes sell out quickly. Tickets for the casino’s April 17 date with Crosby, Stills & Nash sold out in a week.

CINCO DE MEGA WITH MORRIS DAY AND THE TIME
Fresno is about to get a dose of “Jungle Love” and “The Bird” right before Cinco De Mayo. Morris Day and The Time have been announced as headliners for the Cinco De Mega concert, organized by radio station Mega 97.9 on May 4 at Rotary Amphitheatre at Woodward Park.

Five Things You Should Do This Weekend

Other than getting “drunk and disorderly” at Club Habanos

1. MEET YOUR DEATH ANGEL
So I may or may not be related to the lead singer of the band headlining Starline on Saturday night. Depends on who you ask in my family. It’s Death Angel, a veteran Bay Area metal band, and Mark Osegueda is its pipes. The show also includes Warbringer and is the four-year anniversary celebration for concert promoter Diehardz Music. It’s a treat for metal heads, as Death Angel’s metal legacy dates back to the early ’80s and is quite legit. And I’m not saying that ’cause the singer might be my kin. [Tix]
