Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014's Lowdown
Lots going on in LoCO world today, so we're just going to briefly highlight the two highest profile musical offerings, both taking place in Arcata. Are you looking for something up? Or do you wanna keep it low key? You can scratch either of those itches people:
- UP: Get on up, Humboldt. The California Honeydrops will peddle their gospel-tinged soul/R&B within the sacred walls of HumBrews. Sample their mini-big band sound in the clip above.
- DOWN: Mellow on out, Humboldt. The Arcata Playhouse will play host to stark American soundscape creator Jeffrey Foucalt. Consume his tasteful folky blues/country stylings (in YouTube form) below.
Oh, also there's a twerk contest at Blue Lake Casino. It's your Wednesday. Do what thou wilt.

Godlin Gets Behind
You guys. YOU GUYS!!! You will seriously kick yourself in the shins for the rest of your life if you fail to go see the California Honeydrops at Humbrews tonight. They are ridiculous. And you know I don't go throwing that word around lightly. RIDICULOUS. So much dancing. So much smiling. Don't miss it.
Jeffrey Foucault, in addition to having great songs, gives great between-song stage banter.
Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties
Kate Buchanan Room / 5 p.m.
Historical day honoring the late Fred Korematsu, a Japanese American who fought for civil rights. In 1942, Fred Korematsu was arrested for refusing to go to a WWII incarceration camp for Japanese-Americans. He appealed his case all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled against him.
Arcata Playhouse / 8 p.m. / $15 / $13 members & students
"A longtime disciple of the rich and strange music that sings behind the American veil, Foucault has spent the last decade mining the darker seams of country and blues, producing a string of spare and elemental albums of rare power while garnering accolades across the United States and overseas."
