From the Hum: Traffic's Dave Mason, Funky and Uplifting Basslines at ATL


Hall-of-Famer Dave Mason, co-founder of seminal rock group Traffic, appears with his band at the Garberville Theater tonight. After two albums with Traffic, Mason struck out on a solo career, recording the rock classic Alone Together and going platinum with 1977's Let It Flow — you may know the hit single "We Just Disagree." The show benefits the Southern Humboldt Schools Foundation. Tickets are $35 advance, $38 at the door. The theater opens at 7:30 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.

Back up in NoHum, World Famous Productions presents Fort Knox Five, Love and Light, and JPOD the Beat Chef at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. Here's the skinny:
  • Fort Knox Five interweaves live instrumentation with funky electronic breakbeats.
  • Love and Light seeks to elevate people through melodic synth lines, complex chord structure, intricate rhythms and funky, chunky bass lines. 
  • JPOD the Beat Chef's trademark sound is a tasteful fusion of soulful sounds with crispy rhythms and bold basslines. He is also funky and into the lifting of spirits. 
Doors open at 9:30 p.m. with happy hour food and beverage prices until 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 limited advanced and $15 advance, and available at People's Records, DTA, Wildberries and the Works. This show is 21-and-over.
