FYeah Fresno Friday… in SF!
I’m going to see a Fresno band headline tonight in San Francisco! They’re called… Fierce Creatures!
Here’s a little intro to them:
I know Joel and Amanda best, but I’m acquainted with all of the members of the band. They’re seriously so fun to watch live!
The show is at 6pm at the Apple Store in SF. I believe the address is: 1 Stockton Street, San Francisco, CA 94108!
They have more shows coming up (including more in SF!) so check out their tour dates here.
And if you still don’t believe me that they’re awesome, they played at SXSW, I believe it was a year ago? So… suck it!
Just to let you guys know I’m not making this up…
SO. MUCH. FUN.
I love my friends! I love Fresno! <3
Just Another Music Monday: “Married to the Hustle. Engaged in the Struggle.”
Remember that fly-ass chick Krishtine de Leon who won that MTV reality show “I’m From Rolling Stone" in 2007? Or maybe you know her as rapper Rocky Rivera. Reppin’ the Bay (Oakland, to be exact), she’s bringing back the female emcee in a big way, and today she announced the launch of her website RockyRivera.com!
Here’s a quick lil’ in your face intro to Rocky:
And here’s something I think you’ll all enjoy.
I <3 the City, baby.
I highly recommend checking out more of her videos on her site, like “Trick Habit” (I get a kick outta that one) and “MRSHMLO.” For one of her songs that tells a story, check out the track “Heart.”

My friend Kat… Oh my god, this girl. HOW COOL. This is the kind of idea I’ve been grappling with in my head for a future project (possibly in Fresno). Now I want to see if I can get involved. Incredible.
Mission and 16th BART station.
Also for your enjoyment, Fanfarlo at Slim’s in SF this last Tuesday. Got free surprise tickets from Waterstrider (who opened for them), and then Nate got me downstairs to the green room as his guest. It was Cathy’s birthday (the girl in Fanfarlo) and she gave us each a slice of her chocolate birthday cake; it was yummy. I loved the band’s witty stage banter, as well as their gorgeous accents. They had just gotten back from their first weekend playing Coachella, and this was the last show on their 7-week US tour. You gotta watch til the end of the video, the comment the bass player makes is hilarious.
