Thursday, March 13's Lowdown

Your Humboldt Thursday gallivanting options are varied and tasty:

  • Up at the Arcata Theatre Lounge, 'tis the return of the Druid Underground Film Festival, a night set aside annually for visual weirdness/art. Please note that the preview clip for the event (below) was uploaded to Vimeo and not YouTube. This is how you know these are legit film people.
  • Feet that gather at HumBrews will likely have difficulty remaining still due to the efforts of soul/funk/rock party starters Jelly Bread. They be groovin'.
  • Indie is a somehow simultaneously useful and useless term. On a related note, The Siren's Song Tavern has a triple shot of performances tonight from The Space Lady (SF squeezebox-totin' busker), Ensemble Economique (locally based soundscape architect) and Blood Gnome (there are two THREE keyboards).

Godlin Gets Behind

It has always been a dream of mine to knit my dog a sweater made of his own fur thereby ripping a hole in the space time continuum. I'll start that by attending the Handweavers and Spinners Guild meeting.
