The big show tonight is North Carolina post-wave dance band Future Islands
over at Humboldt Brews. Did you see them kill it on Letterman last week
? Get your tickets now
. Terse, yet passionate, Future Islands lays synthy melodies overtop a pulsing punk bass and a rather ecstatic sense of rhythm. Joining them is Ed Shrader's Music Beat
. Show starts at 9 p.m, is all ages and will run you $10.
Another option: Get your party shoes on and head out to the Palm Lounge for Matt Jackson
, Pandemonium Jones
and the second installment of Whatever Forever
, Humboldt's newest dance fever ward. It's free! The booty-shaking begins at 8 p.m. and you have to be 21, etc.
