Wednesday, July 3, 2013's Lowdown

Now, no one is going to force you to immerse yourself in the over-two-week-long Zeltsman Marimba Festival. Maybe xylophones on steroids aren't your thing. But, dagnabbit, we better not hear any Humboldtians complaining that there's never any good marimba shows in this town after this. You'll earn a Robin-slap for that kinda lip.

Yes, the mallets will be flying in the coming days with multiple shows at both the Arcata Playhouse and HSU's Native Forum featuring over 50 performers from all over the world. For more on the festival, check out their website or the North Coast Journal's in-depth piece on its many facets. Below, find the schedule of remaining world class marimba shows in your neighborhood.

So much marimba! Less so in your Wednesday Lowdown below.
