Friday, May 9's Lowdown

Much of your Humboldt Friday vibrance will center around Arcata thanks to the calendar aging dictating that tonight be Arts Arcata. It's your monthly meander, Humboldt! 

After you’ve taken in the sights and sounds on and around the Plaza, perhaps stumble down to the Arcata Playhouse where tonight singer/songwriter/violinist-led string trio Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards will peddle their aural wares. Sample their atmosphere below and/or stroll through Friday’s Lowdown listings farther down.
