If you dig two-minute-long, screw-everything punk/garage rock, go see Broncho tonight at Fulton 55. The Oklahoma band plays with two Fresno vets: It’ll Grow Back (a punk band that keeps things short and energetic) and Sparklejet (a power three-piece who keeps things loud and … ummm, loud). It’s a treat to see Sparklejet these days, let alone on a Monday night.
Below you can check out a cool Broncho cut called “I Don’t Really Want to be Social.” Gives you a good idea of what the band is about. Showtime is 8:30 p.m. Tickets: $5-7.
Lots happening around Fresno on Thursday night. So I won’t waste any time, and just got right to it. Here are six things you could do tonight:
XOTICA ANNIVERSARY:Xotica — the weekly Thursday night drag show at The Express — is celebrating its seventh anniversary tonight. It’s been billed as the “drag event of the year” with seven performers and a red carpet opening at 10 p.m. Get more info at xotica.net.
CITY JAZZ FESTIVAL: Another annual celebration tonight is Fresno City College’s City Jazz Festival, which is in its 21st year. During the day — probably right this second — there are student band performances at Fresno City. But tonight’s there’s a headlining performance from saxophonist legend Bob Sheppard. More info on the flier below.
