Saturday, Feb. 1's Lowdown

(Above: Increase the Peace organizers Don Husman and Pete Ciotti speak with KSLG DJ and event emcee Sherae O'Shaughnessy.)

Without getting too much into it, 2014 in Humboldt County has gotten off to a rough start. Those who follow the Lost Coast Outpost -- not to mention those of us who produce it -- have had to endure a string of violent and saddening incidents.

Saturday, the community will come together and stand against violence.  

Recently, Jambalaya owner Pete Ciotti had had enough and took to Facebook in an attempt to organize an event promoting peace in our community. The response was overwhelming, so much so that today's Increase the Peace gathering now stretches across two venues and features nearly 30 musical and spoken word performances. Here's the list of bands: 

Jambalaya:

  • 8 p.m.: Lizzy and the Moonbeams
  • 8:35 p.m.: Mo and Morgan Hollis 
  • 9:05 p.m.: The Hip Hop Lounge
  • 9:40 p.m.: Lorenza and Madi Simmons
  • 10:00 p.m.: Samba 
  • 10:15 p.m.: The GetDown Crew

  • 11:25 p.m.: Berel Alexander 
  • 12:00 a.m. Liquid Kactus
  • 12:45 a.m. Celebration Jam

HumBrews:

  • 8:00 p.m.: Space Biscuit
  • 8:35 p.m.: Electric Gravy
  • 9:10 p.m.: Ben Allen
  • 9:30 p.m.: Samba 
  • 9:50 p.m.: Mihael Kavanaugh
  • 10:15 p.m.: Splinter Cell 
  • 10:50 p.m.: Moonsong 
  • 11:25 p.m.: The Rezonators
  • 12:00 a.m. Wownd 
  • 12:35 a.m. Scuber Mountain 

Did we mention all this music is free? That's right. Increasing peace will not decrease your funds. Party on, Humboldt. Love where you live.
