If you think weed jokes are funny and Shakespeare’s best work is not, this week’s entertainment is for you.
If you bought Incubus’ first album and loved it, or watched the latest season of “Dancing with the Stars” and loved it, this week’s entertainment is for you.
Here are seven “best bet” choices this week.
Chester Bennington Memorial Show – Here’s your local-band tribute to the late Linkin Park singer with He.cried.wolf, Valkyrie Missile, Ourcorsair, Recycle Life and J.D. Proceeds from the show go to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Details: 7 p.m. Friday. Strummer’s, 833 E. Fern Ave. $8. All ages. 559-485-5356, www.strummersclub.com
Never miss a local story.
“Titus Andronicus” – This is not the New Jersey avant-garde punk band, but rather William Shakespeare’s bloody revenge play from which the band took its name. The play is performed here as part of the Woodward Park Shakespeare Festival and is the last show for the company’s executive director Greg Taber. Details: 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday, through Aug. 26. WSF Stage at Woodward Park. Free, with reserved seating. 559-927-3485, www.woodwardshakespeare.org
Cheech and Chong – Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong pioneered the idea of weed culture in the late 1970s in movies like “Up in Smoke.” Of course, back then, it was all about the jokes. Details: 8 p.m. Friday. Eagle Mountain Casino, 681 S Reservation Rd, Porterville. $40-$50. 800-903-3353, www.eaglemtncasino.com
George Winston – The Grammy winning pianist is touring in support of his latest album, “Spring Carousel.” The album was written at the City of Hope cancer hospital, where Winston underwent a bone marrow transplant in 2013. It was released earlier this year on RCA records as a cancer research benefit. Details: 8 p.m. Saturday. Tower Theatre, 815 E. Olive Ave. $36.50-51.50. 559-485-9050, www.towertheatrefresno.com
Hot Summer Nights – NFL running back Rashad Jennings (he’s still a free agent) leads a cast of professional dancers in the live touring version of the TV competition series “Dancing with the Stars.” Jennings was the season 24 winner. Fans of the show will want to see Lindsay Arnold, Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvintsev, Sasha Farber, Keo Motsepe, Gleb Savchenko and Emma Slater. Details: 8 p.m. Sunday. Saroyan Theatre, 730 M St. $42.50-$89.50. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
Incubus – If you want to feel old, there’s this: alternative rock band Incubus is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its breakthrough album. The band is currently on tour with emo-rockers Jimmy Eat World and Judah and the Lion. Details: 8 p.m. Tuesday. Selland Arena, 700 M St. $49.75. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
Atmosphere – For a couple hundred people, this will be the most-talked about event of the week. The show has been sold out for almost two months (we tried to warn you). It will be the smallest crowd of the hip-hop duo’s short-run California tour (so, totally up close and intimate). Details: 8 p.m. Tuesday. Strummer’s, 833 E. Fern Ave. 559-485-5356, www.strummersclub.com
