Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013's Lowdown
Since this is a fairly sleepy Tuesday, let's look ahead to this weekend's list o' things you might want to think about buying tickets to in advance.
- Dick Dale: If you've never been inside of Scotia's Winema Theater -- and most haven't -- you're missing one of the most unique, majestic rooms in the county. Built in the 1920s, the building is predominantly old-growth redwood. And this Friday, amongst those giant redwood beams, you'll have the opportunity to hear "Miserlou" -- AKA "the Pulp Fiction song" -- performed by its composer. Ticket info.
- Writing My Way Out Of Adolescence: Local story teller Jeff DeMark only performs this collection of tales about his youthful psychedelic adventures once a year. It takes a lot of energy. This year he'll roll it out inside Arcata's newest wine bar Crush. Small and intimate, you'll want to reserve your spot early. Ticket info.
- Mr. Humboldt Pageant: Local dudes will tuck their dignity snugly into speedos and compete for the honor of being named the first ever "Mr. Humboldt" at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. The traditional pageant format will be spoofed during Q&A, beachwear and formal wear segments. There will be back hair. Ticket info.
- Meat Puppets: You've likely heard "Plateau," and "Lake of Fire" performed by some other band, but perhaps you'd be interested in some other selections from the catalog of these alt rockers' 30+ year career. Hang with the brothers Kirkwood Saturday night at HumBrews. Ticket info.
- Too Short: "Cocktails," anyone? The celebrated Bay Area rapper will fill the Arcata Community Center with rhymes of yesteryear, making good on a canceled October date. Ticket info.
The Lowdown Fun Committee
If you hate life and laughing as I do, you'll go to Six Rivers Brewery for Sunny Brae Jazz.
HUMBucks or Bitcoins? Or both? If you're done with dollars, you have options.
Comedy! Unless you hate life or something. Or laughing. DO NOT GO TO THIS IF YOU HATE LAUGHING.
Karaoke w/ Chris Clay
Cher-Ae Heights Casino / 8 p.m.
Your Lowdown will go on the record as saying that Chris Clay is Humboldt's most pro karaoke jockey. We know this stuff.
