Friday, May 16's Lowdown

In advance of tonight’s ‘90s sing-a-long at Cher-ae Heights Casino, Everclear frontman Art Alexakis did a phoner with KSLG morning man Myles Cochrane. The two discussed Everclear’s latest projects, balancing nostalgia with new material, life, love and the pursuit. Listen below. 

(AUDIO) Art Alexakis on KSLG 

For those that don’t want to shell out for the ticket and the journey north, there’s a couple Friday night gatherings closer to Humboldt’s population clusters:

  • First off, local-boy-going-for-it Berel Alexander returns to Humboldt packing acoustic soul to headline a full night good of vibe-y music at the Arcata Theatre  Lounge. Local jamfunkers Liquid Kactus and Diggin’ Dirt fill out the bill.
  • Finally, LoCO readers will recall the tale of Steve Watts, local music promoter and MMA fighter who was seriously injured in a bout last month. Tonight at HumBrews the “Waiting For a Miracle” benefit will feature music by Watts' friends in local Beatles tribute band Silver Hammer, as well as a silent auction.
