With the original field of 24 bands whittled down to the crème de la crème, KWPT's month-long Classic Cover Contest reaches its thrilling conclusion tonight at the Arcata Playhouse. On a night also reserved for celebration of The Point's birthday, north coast bands Fire Pony, Doug Fir and the 2x4s and The Good Homosapiens will take the stage to determine forevermore (until next year) who is the most classic.
