The Cutters, Naked Bikers, Eureka Mini-Gras and Will Durst Compete For Your Friday the 13th

The kitty has been released from its confining sack and is now free to roam around and rub up against your leg. The Cutters, one of the more popular bands in Humboldt history, have reunited to headline a night at The Palm Lounge Friday (for more, see the Lowdown dance around the subject yesterday). But that is but one star in HumCo’s crowded Friday night stuff-to-distract-you sky:

And geez, there’s stuff we didn’t even get to: Humboldt Crabs baseball, Moonalice, Wild Otis, LaPatinasGarberville Rodeo and more. Scroll around, kids.
