Generation X: an age group that is synonymous with flannel shirts, Unisonic clear telephones, indie films, and blowing on the bottom of your video game cartridges if they were malfunctioning. But most of all, the one thing that this generation of so-called “slackers” is known for is…the music.

Feeling blue, by definition, means feeling melancholy, sad, or depressed. On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17, alternative rock band Blue October, in reference to their 2018 single release “I Hope You’re Happy,” I’d say the Fresno audience came away with that feeling.

The East Coast trio, FOXTRAX, is an indie rock band that perfectly embody what it is to be quintessential journeymen. Metaphorically and literally, their music, songs, and focus are odyssey driven to one day stand on the biggest stages and inspire a legion of fans just like the bands they grew up listening to.
