Friday, July 26, 2013's Lowdown

It's been nice knowing you, work. But Humboldt's got better things to do now. Should you venture out Friday, there is no shortage of fun and spectacle to be had.

In Eureka, though the Healy Bros. Building has been occupyable for months now, it's never too late to have a party, si? Thus, there will be an afternoon Block Party in front of the newly refurbished Old Town brick behemoth featuring the hot licks of blues/rock guitarist-of-note Elvin Bishop -- who played at the then Oldt Town Bar and Grill back in the day -- and Humboldt country music institution The Roadmasters.

In Fortuna, the friendly city continues its tradition of hosting its two biggest annual events in consecutive weekends. With the Fortuna Rodeo wrapped, the town turns its attention toward the the automobile. The Fortuna Redwood AutoXpo will play out over the next three days (check the full schedule online). Of note Friday, is the annual kickoff sockhop. Get down, Fortuna. 

In Arcata, as we noted earlier this week this is the final weekend of the Humboldt Crabs regular season -- they slaughter the California Seals on Friday. Later in the evening, Jambalaya plays host to Bill Summers (former percussionist for Herbie Hancock) playing alongside DJ Logic and Humboldt all-star funk blitzkrieg Motherlode

The Lowdown is declaring your couch closed this evening, HumCo. Get out there.
