Get your Peanuts here!
Fans of comic strips turned into musical comedy theatre should take notice of North Coast Repertory Theatre's latest production You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, which opens gala-style Thursday night. Director David Moore and the local cast will breathe life into all your fav Charles M. Shulz-drawn characters. (Your Lost Coast Outpost, always fans of security blankets, digs on Linus, for what it's worth.)
To get you in the mood, please enjoy this scene (below) from the animated version of the show in which ol' failure face Charlie Brown has one of his frequent internal crises pondering the implications of his peanut butter sandwich and pines for that stuck-up, cute, little red-headed girl. Oh, Charlie. Now imagine the joy you'll feel watching a similar meltdown take place live, onstage. Good grief!
The Lowdown Fun Committee
Compost Mountain Boys. Because THERE IS A TESLA COIL IN THAT PLACE. Tesla was a badass and Edison was a jerkbag. So go see the Compost Mountain Boys.
Oh dude, 1000000% no question, the place to be tonight is Humbrews for the Polyrhythmics, if for no other reason than there are SO many of them. Can they all fit on the stage at the same time?! Show up tonight to find ooot.
Polyrhythmics once explained how they can afford to tour around with a massive band to KHUM DJ Larry Trask: "We can't." Watch them lose money triumphantly at Humbrews.
