You know about the Black Prairie
show already, but there's another notable option happening tonight:
Vancouver, B.C.'s The Sumner Brothers
is playing a house gig in Arcata, specifically at the Sanctuary. The brothers have been featured on KEXP's live sessions series (if you don't know KEXP, it's a public station out of Seattle that highlights excellent bands new and old). The brothers Sumner play that kind of haunting roots music that keeps you listening one song after the other and the kind of country that makes you remember there's a good kind of country: Johnny Cash, of course, Lucinda Williams, Hank Williams — you get the idea. Tickets at Wildwood, $8, $10 at the door, show time at 7 p.m. Arcata’s Lyndsey Battle trio opens.
