The Catacomb Party isn’t the only local music festival – F.U.S.E (Fresno Urban Sound Experience) is entering its sixth year with another great lineup of local bands.
15 bucks gets you two nights of music at some great venues. There are some changes this year – the festival is smaller (as a result of Catacomb…?) but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth visiting. Seriously, $15 for two nights of music? It’s a steal.
While previous years have included up to a dozen venues, this year it’s limited to 8 stages in 4 venues, all at the northern side of downtown. The first night is exclusively at Fulton 55, alternating between the main stage and a smaller stage upstairs, while the second night is mostly at the Warnor’s theater complex. One cool thing is that they’re apparently using the main stage, which should be fun for the bands. As usual, Tokyo Garden closes out the night – but you have to get there before the music starts if you want food.
