Sunday, March 2, 2014's Lowdown
Well you have a big decision today don't you, Humboldt? Is the thrill of experiencing the same-room-electricity that Ani DiFranco transfers to her audiences worth missing the live Academy Awards telecast for? I mean, you could try to sneak them both in considering the awards start at 4 p.m., but you know how long that damn show is (think about that Van Duzer Theatre park and walk). You'd miss the awards that matter, dagnabbit! Quite the dilemma, especially since missing DiFranco's opener -- local girl done great Jenny Scheinman -- would be a crime. Damn you, life's choices!
If you do decide to veer strictly Hollywood, remember that they're having a big Oscar party at the Eureka Theatre tonight in conjunction with the venue's 75th Anniversary Jubilee. See the gold statuettes handed out on the big screen while enjoying 1939-style cocktails.
It's your Sunday. Choose wisely.
