Pick a day


Sorry, Arcata. Eureka Wins Friday #EurekaRising

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:

That's a decent road map, yes? Sure, Arcata dwellers have the higher profile Shook Twins and Phutureprimitive show options. But I think Eureka wins Friday. Better luck next week, A-Town.
