Humboldt's Halloween Hangover

(Friday: The Coup, New York Gypsy All-Stars, Melvin Seals...)

Let's assume if you're reading these words you survived Halloween. Way to be. This is gonna work out great for you because, now that you've got all the cosplay out of your system, you still have a whole weekend to celebrate. Scrape off your gooey zombie makeup. Friday in Humboldt is a great night for straight live music:
