Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013's Lowdown
Well, if you aren't already clutching Huckleberry Flint tickets close to your chest, you will not be going to their annual Christmas show at the Arcata Playhouse tonight. Sucks to be you.
But your Saturday Lowdown is flush with other options to occupy you on the longest night of the year. C'mon, it's Soul Night … let's see, what else? Oh! It's your last chance to see Dell'Arte's annual holiday show Babes in Toyland. Or, geez, you can see the guy from House of Pain … in Scotia. That's pretty special, right there. You can do this.
The Lowdown Fun Committee
This isn't the kinda mushroom walk you take from the ganja goo ball guy to the vegan burrito stand in a festy lot. This is the MATURE KIND. And the preferable kind now that grey hairs pop up to remind me of my own mortality.
Catch the LaPatinas at the Farmer's Market or 12 hours later at the Logger Bar. OR BOTH. [$5 and under award]
