For the 800 or so non-procrastinators who snatched up tickets a couple months back, tonight is their date with Sara Bareilles. Eureka's most famous daughter will play to a sold out crowd Sunday at the Van Duzer Theatre. A good time will be had by all.
Then there's the rest of you unfortunate souls whose night will feature zero serenading courtesy of a really famous person. Luckily, the Lowdown is here to lessen your turmoil. One time saxophonist in Miles Davis' band Bill Evans will roll into HumBrews tonight with his band Soulgrass. That's soothing, right? Oh, and Steel Standing are playing their final show ever down sunny Fortuna way in Eel River Brewery's magical beer garden. Boom!
