Monday, Nov. 3's Lowdown

Congrats! If you are reading this, you survived Halloweekend, Humboldter. Now that everyone has removed their scary costumes, it feels safe to talk ‘shrooms. 

First though, we’ll acknowledge that Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi’s rippin’ blues rock supergroup the Tedeschi Trucks Band will drop many a lick on the Van Duzer Theatre stage, and if you have $75 to spend like it's nothing you should absolutely inject those riffs into your blood stream.

For the rest of us, your best Monday bet for feeling something you normally wouldn’t has to be the Radical Mycology Tour which takes on two forms in Humboldt today. First, The Siren’s Song Tavern plays host to musical weirdness tonight, highlighted by a performance by former Humboldter Willoughby Arevalo. Here is how his performance is being promoted:

Arevalo will perform solo as Versionary, bringing back for the first time a piece that debuted in Eureka two years ago, called “The Sex Life of Mushrooms.” It is a performance-lecture incorporating music and spoken word, a juicy, in-depth, innuendo-laden personification of the life cycle of mushrooms. It addresses ideas about gender politics, mating types, mate sensing molecules, evolutionary advantages of sexual diversity, mushrooms as fertility symbols, fungal ecology, and more.

Sure! And that's not all! A scrolling of today's Lowdown listings reveals that, if you need more fungi, fun guy, the Radical Mycology tour offers a two-hour presentation at The Sanctuary in Arcata covering “uses of fungi for personal, societal, and ecological healing.” 

This Monday truly provides enough ‘shroom for all.
