Friday, Sept. 6, 2013's Lowdown
Geez. Go ahead and peruse Friday's Lowdown. Did you just get really tired? Yeah. Too much stuff going on. Just Friday, the combination of inspiring personal narrative/holy-damn raw talent that is the Charles Bradley experience blows the roof off the Van Duzer Theatre. Under the radar local music is allowed on stage over Bummerfest's two days. A herd of classic cars will graze in Eureka for your viewing pleasure during Cruz' n Eureka. Two comedy shows, an arts night, a film festival.
Again, too much.
Oh, and then there's Steel Standing. Friday night at Jambalaya, Humboldt's 10-person strong steel drum calypso orchestra celebrates the release of their first album with a "Trinidance" party. As if that wasn't incentive to shake it island-style, it should be noted that Steel Standing will soon sit down -- the group will be hanging it up and going their separate ways. (Note: In addition to Friday's show, they'll be partying in Eel River Brewery's beer garden on Sunday). Catch 'em while you can. Full Friday Lowdown below.
