Lowdown: Humboldt's Classic Rockin' Friday

’Tis Friday, Humboldt! Do you love Creedence songs? Of course you do. 

Thus, with the number of ambitious classic rock-respecting bands whittled down to the róck de la róck, KWPT’s month-long Classic Cover Contest reaches its thrilling conclusion tonight at Humboldt Brews. On a night also reserved for celebration of The Point’s birthday, north coast bands Monihan, Martin and Sleep, Doug Fir and the 2x4s and The Good Homosapiens will take the stage to determine forevermore (until next year) who is the most classic. For those about to (classic) rock, we salute ye.

Now, for those of you in SoHum who dig on the music of several decades ago who don’t want to make the trek north (it’s far), fret not. EPIC’s Annual Fall Celebration takes place tonight at the Mateel Community Center and those fun-loving enviros have booked none other than the regions most tireless Pink Floyd tribute band House of Floyd to shoot lasers over the heads of assembled treehuggers. Whee! 

Long live rock and stuff.

--Andrew Goff
