Saturday, March 15's Lowdown

Oof. We will fail in our attempts to round up all the varied awesome of this sunny Humboldt Saturday. Too much good. Briefly, briefly:

  • Two of Humboldt's best pint pushers are celebrating birthdays today with HumBrews reaching double digit age and The Local entering the terrible twos. Check out the listings below for details on how they're commemorating the event. (Hint: The common theme is beer).
  • The owners of the Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe attempt to convert you to their two-wheeled religion with a screening of the film Why We Ride at the Eureka Theatre. Listen to BLMC's Cassandra and Jeff Hesseltine's recent interview plugging the event here.
  • Ze honk and ze tonk will be in serious supply up in Trinidad when local favs Rooster McClintock rain twang down upon Ocean Grove. What happens on the back deck, stays on the back deck.

View the whole Saturday iceberg below.

Do you like dive bars and honky-tonk and stomping your boots? How convenient then, that you can combine these three loves at The Ocean Grove on Saturday with Rooster McKlintock! (And I use "dive bar" with the utmost respect.) Something crazy-exciting always happens at a Rooster show. Don't you want to find out what it'll be this time? Yee HAW!
