Spanspek Scholarship Raffle

Good afternoon folks!  I hope you're doing well!  Currently I find myself hungry for lunch and listening to some new fangled electronic music.  It's making for a trippy combination.  You know what else makes for a trippy combination?  Seguing from that to our Spanspek Scholarship Raffle!

Alright, so here's the deal.  We want to be able to provide the biggest scholarship we can to the students of Orosi High School.  With that in mind, we'll be holding a raffle during this Friday's festival to raise additional scrilla.  All proceeds from the raffle will go specifically to fund the scholarship. 

Pretty awesome right?  BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!  For each dollar donated to the Scholarship fund, you will be entered into a drawing to win a prize pack that includes the following:
  • Stickers, buttons, and a $10 gift card from Visalia's Velouria Records;
  • Merch from Sloppy Stitches by Tron;
  • Albums and merch from Spanspek bands, including Werebear, Basura, Sci-Fi Caper, and Sahab!
The winner will be announced at the end of the night!  Also winners must be present to win, cause we're sneaky sneaks like that.

So that's the scoop on raffle!  Thanks to everyone who donated prizes, in particular Velouria Records!  They're a great record store in Downtown Visalia, so be sure to visit them if you're in the area!

Thanks again and we'll see you this Friday, September 28th for SPANSPEK!!!

Spanspek's Favorite Music of 2016 - Mike Oz

Hey! We got another blog for you! This is unprecedented! It's from Fresno renaissance man Mike Oz!  A lot of your faithful readers know who this dude is, but for those who don't Mike Oz covers baseball at Yahoo Sports, hosts Ozmosis on New Rock 104.1 and organizes Fresno-area events such as Taco Truck Throwdown, FresYes Fest and Tacos, Brews & Jams. Before all that, he wrote about music and pop culture at The Fresno Bee for 10 years. Follow him on social media, @mikeoz.  See, he's legit.

But before we get to his picks please consider donating to Spanspek by going to the TULARE COUNTY ARTS CONSORTIUM WEBSITE and clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.  All donations go to our scholarship fund and help us keep doing our podcast, blog, and music festival! Any amount helps!

Oh and by the way, be sure to hit up Mike's Tacos, Brews, and Jams event tonight at the Tioga-Sequoia Brewery!
Thanks and lets see what Mike Oz likes!

Spanspek's Favorite Music of 2016 - Local Albums

What's up! This is it folks, we made it to the end of another year! And what a doozy it was. We saw a few local venues call it quits and some come under intense scrutiny by parties both well intentioned and not. Yet we also got to see a bunch of young bands flourish and a few old timers up and tour the country. It seems like the local scene is at a point of transition. And that's kinda of scary. But it can be exciting too. I'm hoping for more of the latter in 2017.

Ok, so on this last post we're gonna share our favorite local albums of 2016.  It's my favorite blog to write (though it takes for damn ever to do) and I'm looking forward to hear what y'all think!  But before we get to that Spanspek Co-Founder Israel Flores and myself would like to thank everyone  that has supported Spanspek this year. You are all really cool people and without your support we couldn't do any of this!  So THANK YOU! And you know, if you want to kick a few scrills our way to h…
