Friday, June 20, 2014's Lowdown
It’s gonna be a packed Humboldt weekend. Sorry, lonely couches. For specifically Friday fun-seekers, The Best of Humboldt Fair, Korbel V and the Humboldt Crabs may be on your agenda, but you could also hit ‘em all up tomorrow. The things below only happen tonight:
- How could a room filled with people singing and rocking out to Creedence Clearwater Revival songs be bad? Bear River Casino puts this theory to the test hosting earnest John Fogerty impersonator Randy Linder and his CCR tribute band.
- Humboldt’s monthly adult funk prom returns. Missing Link Records’ Soul Night 32 again will test the strength of HumBrews’ dance floor with special sets tonight by DJ Red and Spaceman Spliff.
- Keep it mellow in Old Town at the Siren’s Song Tavern with Oregon-based indie band Yaquina Bay. Sample their restraint in the YouTube clip below.
The Lowdown Fun Committee
Humboldt Cash Mob! What a brilliant idea!
If I can manage to stop listening to KWPT The Point 100.3/102.7 for a few hours, I just might hit up some stock car racing at the fairgrounds. Mike like zoooooom!
