Adam Burnett) Chris Von Sneidern Chris von Sneidern (CvS) is a San Francisco-based singer/songwriter and recording artist with thirteen critically acclaimed, self-produced albums Deemed #6 of the all-time Greatest Power Pop Albums in Shake Some Action, by John M. Borack (2007), CvS’s 2nd CD,Big White Lies, remains a strong seller worldwide. He regularly performs in the Bay Area as well as in Europe and Japan. He toured Spain this year in tribute to UK band The Clash, recreating the London Calling album in its entirety to sold-out crowds with Chuck Prophet. Lowboy (feat. Adam Burnett) Lowboy is Adam Burnett’s (Dangermaker) stripped down indie pop rock singer-songwriter americana folk blues featuring Dave DeAngelis on keys (Dangermaker) and Dan Caporale on drums (Upstairs Downstairs, B and Not B). The result sounds like a modern take on retro pop, americana & folk, somewhere between a Velvet Underground or young Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Band of Horses, or Jesus and the Mary Chain… Lannie Flowers After the success of his album, "Same Old Story," called 2008's Album of the Year by Power Pop Station, Lannie Flowers has done it again. His sophomore release, "Circles," takes his work even further and fleshes out the skeletal style that won so much critical praise. The fifteen notable songs stay with you and become a part of your life's soundtrack. Years of hard work and musical growth have given Flowers wisdom attained from near-stardom and a wealth of experiences.
AG solo opening up the show.
Box Office opens one hour prior to show time. Show at 8pm. This show is gonna be something really special...aerial dancers....what else could a person want???? What kind of music do Blake Jones and the Trike Shop play? Theremins whir, guitars clang, melodies surprise and classic pop song forms are run through a slightly dada-ist lens. Life-long songwriter and DIY-er Blake Jones pipes in with, “I’m only just starting to learn how powerful music is. Music can heal your spirit, stretch your mind and make you shake your tail-feathers---and those are some pretty lofty goals for a noisy little rock band.” But perhaps the only answer needed is that written by James Gardner of the All Music Guide: "It lands like a pure-pop present on your doorstep!" http://www.blakejonesmusic.com/core.html "Felsen's music is both smart and sexy and is always catchy. It demands repeated listening. This is for Alt Rock fans of Wilco, Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, Beck AND fans of the classic sound of Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys and the Beatles." felsen triumphantly returns to fresno! the last time was at Tokyo Gardens and we played for 7 people and got payed $35+a bottle of teriyaki sauce. sweet deal. well actually, sweet and sour deal. fresno, were ready for you this time... http://www.facebook.com/felsenlovesyou NOCO (Fresno Dance Collective) creates and performs original works of modern dance that have earned accolades across the country.
