To-Do Tonight: Go to the beach, in Fresno

The common thread around town tonight? Beach-themed parties … indoors. I suppose when you live in land-locked Fresno, you make due how you can. The fliers below have info on what’s happening at Karma Restaurant and Lounge and Ghaleb’s Hookah Lounge.

To-Do Tonight: Yo Gabba, Filter and more

The two top choices for tonight:

FILTER: As I told you yesterday, alt-rockers Filter are at Starline. You probably know them from their ballad “Take A Picture,” but expect a much louder show tonight.

To-Do Tonight: Find Fresno’s Zen


Tonight marks the start of a new local showcase — The Zen Factory at Crossroads.

Here’s what Zen Factory is all about, according to organizers Cloud 9 Productions:

Zen Factory is a weekly event that combines a wide audio spectrum of touring class Dj’s, Rock Band’s, and MC’s, blended smoothly together with intense visual laser light effects, inside an alcohol rich environment.

Thus producing a Sensory Enlightened Perception or a state of ZEN, found only at the all new Crossroads. (Makes you smile just reading the description doesn’t it?)

Tonight’s bill includes rock band Buffalo Guns, singer/songwriter Benjamin David, hip-hop act The Remedy and, on the turntables, DJ Roman.

To-Do Tonight: It’s Kris Kristofferson night

‘Tis the night, Fresno, to celebrate Kris Kristofferson. If you didn’t know, the man himself is at the Tower Theatre. Last we saw a few tickets were still available for $46 a pop.

Afterward, hop over to Audie’s Olympic, which is hosting the afterparty with Fresno’s own Roger Perry, plus L.A. Americana/country band Dave Gleason and the Golden Cadillacs. (They’re good.) It’s free to get in.
