Thursday, Oct. 17's Lowdown
(Thursday's MVPs: GRiZ, Watts, DeSoto)
Of course the brightest star in Humboldt's Thursday night sky will shine from the stage of the Van Duzer Theatre. For those of you that had the foresight to earlybird tickets for the sold out Reggie Watts show, three things:
- 1) Well done.
- 2) Be sure to presume with DJ Myles Cochrane when he interviews Watts about all things on KSLG at 4 p.m.
- 3) Give LoCO your ticket.
Oh well. The rest of us slackers need not worry. There's plenty of distraction still to be had, for example:
- Ba-Dum-Chh Comedy will coerce some funny people who are not quite Reggie Watts onto HumBrews' stage. Bonus points for being 1/9 the price as the CenterArts show.
- The Robert Goodman Tasting Room plays host to singer/songwriter Hunter Paye who you can feel justified in seeing because his artist bio begins by informing us that he splits his time between Portland, OR and Austin, TX and those are very cool cities. Chris Parreira opens.
- World Famous Productions presents the requisite big EDM dancedown of the week at Arcata Theatre Lounge. Do you kids like GRiZ? Beats, lights, you know how this works.
- Local blues force Earl Thomas strips it down for a special intimate acoustic show at the Arcata Playhouse joined by guitarist Eddie Angel. Soul singer Jesi Naomi opens.
- Videographer and friend o' the LoCO Malcolm DeSoto is the latest to get the Local Filmmakers Night treatment. He will teach you the art of making not horrible small town commercials.
We're giving Thursday the seal of variety. Even more options in your Lowdown below.

Reggie Watts. Homeboy is hysterical! Did calling him Homeboy sound racist? Seriously, though....I'm behind this. And in front of it, and next to it, holding its hand.
