Two fine Arcata shows await your attendance tonight. How're you feeling, Humboldt?
Christian Lee Hutson
is one of a new generation of American singer-songwriters clearly drawn toward the traditional, but not hampered by tradition. His music has a certain elegance, more Bulleit than Jack, which likely accounts for the 24-year-old Huston's having already shared stages with Damien Jurado, Ralph Stanley and Father John Misty. All the aforementioned stages were likely bigger than the room at Redwood Curtain Brewing Co., where you can find Hutson at 10 p.m. The show is 21-and-over and free.
Humboldt Brews offers a relatively big-name-in-bluegrass moment with the Grammy-nominated Infamous Stringdusters — the band's new album Let It Go
spent four weeks on the Americana Radio Chart top 10. Tickets are $15, show starts at 8 p.m., Whiskey Shivers
