Saturday, Feb. 22's Lowdown

After spending a day out in the beautiful Humboldt Saturday sun (you did that, right?) there's no shortage of fun to be had once darkness falls. Scroll your Lowdown below for more on the high profile shows -- to name the few visually referenced above, hemp-hoppers Los Marijuanos at the Mateel Community Center, Roma roots music group Fishtank Ensemble at the Arcata Playhouse and Whose Line Is It Anyway? alum Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood at the Van Duzer Theatre. Be not bored, HumCo.

Also of note, this evening the Wiyot Tribe will hold its final annual Candlelight Vigil remembering ancestors massacred on Indian Island back in 1860, an event held each February since 1992. The discontinuation of the gathering coincides with plans to resurrect the tribe's World Renewal Ceremony this coming March. The event has not been held since the infamous slaughter occurred.

Should be a pretty special night.

A lot of good options for rock tonight. Gotta recommend my new coworker's band Wild Otis. Also: Tripwire, Fire Pony, and 707. I think all these shows receive the coveted [$5 and under award]. Rock music's got your back.
