THURSDAY LOWDOWN: Jamie Baum Septet Plays All the Notes, Deaf Wish Plays a Few

Left: A favorite of the jazz critic set, flutist Jamie Baum lugs her accomplished band behind the Redwood Curtain to fill HSU's Kate Buchanan Room with songs from her latest album Bridges.

Right: As is their wont, the fine folk at Outer Space in Arcata have once again corralled a herd of bands to rock their venue, including headliners and Sub Pop Records standard bearers Deaf Wish from Australia.
