Friday, Dec. 27, 2013's Lowdown

(Friday night's stars, left to right: McClane, Argyle, Rex)

Before we plow into Friday night, we implore you 1) take a gander at your Dec. 31 Lowdown listings and/or 2) submit your New Year's Eve event if you happen to be throwing one. Don't be left out in the cold, party people, unless, like, you're a polar bear and that's how you like to celebrate turning calendar pages. To each their own.

As far as this evening is concerned you'll notice that the Arcata Theatre Lounge and the Eureka Theatre, both formerly proud purveyors of the magic of Hollywood, are showing mooo-veees. Both scheduled films feature carnage and destruction. One features Jeff Goldblum. Got it?

Over at HumBrews, Savage Henry is hosting a comedy night with headliner Josh Argyle, a comedian who is legit funny and your Lost Coast Outpost supports and stuff. We were gonna include a YouTube clip of him making with the jokes to help you decide whether or not he's worth your entertainment dollar but, dammit, all the ones we could find were too long and of poor quality. Didn't paint our man in a good light, IOHO. So. Will one of Humboldt's hundred or so videographers get up to A-Town tonight and do this man some justice?

Thank you in advance. Other nuggets in your Friday Lowdown below.

Since wise Andy already chose the SavHen Comedy Night, I guess I'll go with the Ugly Sweater Compatish at the logger. Ugly sweaters need love too.
