Wednesday, Sept. 10's Lowdown

Hopefully, Humboldt has found the motivation to wipe up the tears shed over the cancelation of last night’s scheduled Avett Brothers joydown. We will rebuild.  

If you’d like to give specifically CenterArts an opportunity to re-inflate your soul, you could go watch some tumbling human beings at the Van Duzer Theatre Wednesday. The National Acrobats of China make their annual trek to Humboldt to make audiences forget to breathe.  

Those on tighter entertainment budgets may be satiated by the Arcata Theatre Lounge’s weekly celebration of horrible cinema. Here is how the venue itself promotes tonight’s offering, The Doomsday Machine (1972): “Poorly written, directed and photographed, The Doomsday Machine is one of those cheap sci-fi farragos which rounds up several faded stars and then gives them nothing to work with.”

Very encouraging. Trailer below.
