Troll 2 Redo

We're gonna try this again.

You may recollect last Wednesday your Lowdown made a big to do about the fact that the Arcata Theatre Lounge was screening Troll 2, one of the worst movies ever birthed. 'Twas gonna be a great time. But then the power went out in Arcata and the Trolling was canceled. Arcata mourned, but the good news is that the ATL is giving it another go tonight.

Oh. My. God.

If making your brain hurt via painful cinema ain't your cup, we'll also note the return of acoustic trio Marty O'Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra to the Siren's Song Tavern tonight. Last time they rolled through they found themselves immortalized Chuck Johnson's Humboldt Live Sessions. Refresh your memory below and/or tune in to KHUM at 12:30 p.m. to hear the boys live. Your call.
