Friday, May 23's Lowdown

We’ll start off by reminding y’all that the Lost Koast Outpost will be the place to view photos and video of every single goddamn sculpture rolling in this weekend’s Kinetic Grand Championship. We dig on glory here.

As far as Friday night is koncerned, you can get yourself into the korrect glorious spirits at the Eureka Theatre’s skreening of Stanley Kramer’s It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, a film whose wacky DNA can be found in Hobart’s race’s khromosomes.

(Note: We here at LoKO are just going to apologize in advance for the fact that many hard “C”s will be replaced by “K”s this weekend. It’s a stupid, stupid kinetic tradition. We are very sorry.)

Also tonight, standup up-and-goer Keith Lowell Jensen headlines a night of too many comedians at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. See him wish aloud that Sudafed were as readily available as meth in the video below.
