Saturday, Jan. 18's Lowdown

Plenty of distractions in Humboldt Saturday. From experimental film nights, to cowboy-themed murder mystery dinners, to people getting punched in the face, you have no excuse for staring at your walls this evening.

The highest profile option? No stranger to Humboldt, eclectic multi-instrumentalist David Lindley will again cast aural weirdness over the masses gathered at the Van Duzer Theatre. The longtime sideman for Jackson Browne, and leader of the bands Kaleidoscope and Rayo-X sports an odd musical toolbox -- not many shows promise exploration of Middle Eastern oud, Turkish sax and Irish bouzouki sounds, amirite? It's like a vacation for your ears.

Or if Mr. Dave creeps you out scroll around your Saturday Lowdown below.

-Andrew Goff

(L to R: saz, oud, bouzouki ... we think.)

David Lindley is beautiful freak, and to be in his presence is to have the a mai-tai-soaked world poured down your ears.
