Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013's Lowdown
Welcome to Wednesday, Lowdowners. Let's see how you're going to spend your water-free day.
If you've got the funds, you can check two significant artists off your "seen 'em" list at the Van Duzer Theatre. Superstar singer/songwriters Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt will share the JVD stage for an intimate acoustic evening of back-and-forth song ping pong. Don't really famous people look nice sitting next to each other?
However, if $75 concerts are not your bag, your Lost Coast Outpost always recommends watching shitty ol' monster flicks at the Arcata Theatre Lounge for Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night. Tonight they're showing The Alien Factor (1976), the head shake-worthy trailer for which you can watch below.
Or you could support the deserving McKinleyville Land Trust by drinking beer. So, Wednesday ain't too shabby.
