Humboldt Funk All-Stars Kidnap Bill Summers and DJ Logic

The weekend didn't kick your ass hard enough? Brave Monday night warriors can keep the party going up in Arcata with a special edition of the weekly Getdown funk jams. Why special? Percussionist Bill Summers and DJ Logic, -- who jammed with Motherlode at Jambalaya on Friday -- apparently just can't get enough of the Humboldt music scene and stuck around for more funkin' good times. Hopefully you heard the makeshift ensemble on KHUM (pictured above)this afternoon that also featured HumCo virtuoso keyboardist Brian Swizlo, bassist Drew Mohr and potentially-the-best-drummer-in-the-county Pete Ciotti. If not, catch 'em at the Jam tonight.

Also Monday night, at The Works in Old Town there's a tasty triple bill headlined by guitar swami William Tyler -- sample the aural products of his tactful fingers in the video below. Filling out the night will be the fairly new adventurous local guitar/fiddle duo Electro Saloon, comprised of Strix Vega's Colin Begall and Patronus' Alanna Goldsmith, and Eureka band The Tweeners. Enjoy live music surrounded by shelves of recorded music. It's trippy.

In other news, the countdown to Reggae on the River enters its final week. The Mateel Community Center has announced that it is adding single day tickets, without the camping option. (The single day tickets will be available at the gate only, to those who arrive by the shuttle or by foot, as car parking is reserved for 3 and 4-day ticket holders who are camping.) FYI for those of you who know your reggae limits.
