If you can’t find a live band in Fresno tonight, you’re looking in the wrong place.
SAVE MART CENTER ROCKS
Save Mart Center hosts a rock trifecta with 3 Doors Down, Daughtry and P.O.D. Be sure to check out my feature story on 3 Doors Down from last Friday’s Bee. I talk to guitarist Chris Henderson about the band’s “anonymous” fame. Tickets are still available. They cost $26.50-$46.50. Hit up Ticketmaster if you need some.
JAZZ HOP HOPS TO A NEW DAY
Fresno’s Jazz Hop — the monthly celebration of live jazz in dozens of venues — cuts itself from the ArtHop umbilical cord with a new second-Thursday-of-the-month calendar spot. Not much else has changed: still plenty of live music to see for free.
Says Jazz Hop coordinator Kate McKnight: “I’m seeking to highlight jazz music (and other genres) and the musicians by dedicating a night to hop just for music. ArtHop is so big now, and people couldn’t get around to see or experience all that they want to.” Tonight’s Jazz Hop is a bit smaller because of the holidays, she says. The schedule is below.
