Monday, Dec. 9, 2013's Lowdown

Thankfully, Monday has already been music-full here in LoCO land. But if you want to keep the melodiousness going, you're gonna want to head to A-town tonight, kids:

  • Tonight over at Jambalaya they're holding the Humboldt Music Showcase, a holiday-ish benefit for Toys For Tots featuring local bands Farmhouse Odyssey, Liquid Kactus, Naive Melodies and The Getdown house band to name a few. Be aware: You can waltz right in sans cover if you bring an unwrapped toy.
  • Get a history lesson in multiple American music traditions at the Arcata Playhouse courtesy of multi-instrumentalist Dirk Powell. A promoter of traditional Appalachian musical styles, Powell will be joined by fiddler/accordionist Cedric Watson. Get a taste of the duo via the YouTubage provided below.

McGuinty Might

I still really want to learn how to swing dance. Still haven't gone to the lessons at Redwood Racks. Maybe tonight is the night. Maybe. (They call this "McGuinty Might", after all. I don't want to be too committal.)
