Lowdown: Spoken Word/Sung Choruses Tonight at the Playhouse

The latest of Chris Parreira's personal performer selections takes the stage Tuesday night at the Arcata Playhouse. CP Presents lefty spoken word artist/poet Chris Chandler backed by the rootsy acoustic guitar stylings and occasional lyrical interludes of Paul Benoit. Get a taste of what they're servin' up in the clip above.

It's also cribbage night at the Moose Lodge.
