Pick a day

It's Saturday! Can I get an amen?

There will be amens to spare tonight at the Arkley Center when the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir, our local 80-plus voice joy army for nearly two decades, gathers round for Rejoicing in Song. The evening will be recorded for future DVD/CD consumption and will also feature blues crooner Earl Thomas and the AIGC Youth Choir.

Other Saturday highlights include Eureka's monthly Arts Alive, the Folklife Society Barn Dance benefit for the Humboldt Music Academy and CASA's Tastes of the World chow down.

Get out. Be community.
