Friday, Nov. 22, 2013's Lowdown
Assuming you have any energy left after chasing the man in the chicken suit around, Friday night gallivanters have the opportunity to see no less than eight (mostly) local bands on the cheap within a few Eureka blocks. If you do it right, you should be able to catch most of 'em. Here are the venues to hit, "start times" -- always subject to if the bass player showed up on time or not -- and the bands you may gawk at:
- The Ink Annex, 7 p.m.: Early starters can soak up a garage band hat trick comprised of NO BUNNY, The Lost Luvs and Dirty Pillows for a suggested $5 donation.
- The Siren's Song Tavern, 8:30 p.m.: Your evening's twangiest option comes in the form of rowdy Cliff Dallas and the Death Valley Troubadors who'll be supported by dreamy duo Electro Saloon.
- The Palm Lounge, 10 p.m.: Absorb synthy vibes aplenty with an indie trio of groups -- Technicolor Hearts, Rider Rosie and Blood Gnome -- to close your night. Hell, stay the night.
The Lowdown Fun Committee
I gotta agree with Andy's giant head today. Cliff Dallas. Maybe their theme will warm you up a bit. It's Witches Nipples out there.
You'll feel better about everything in general after you see The Shook Twins.
