If you want to get out of town — end-of-summer fling? — the Trinity River Jamboree
offers three days of music with more than 35 bands, plus a Silent Disco Dance DJ Party
and tons of other festival fun. See www.trinityjam.com
for the full line-up and all the info you could want.
Speaking of not-Humboldt, a couple bands have come all the way from Finland to play at the Placebo's Ink Annex. You've got post-punk Kuudes Silma
with hardcore Maailmanloppu
, plus Washington's punk Kohosh
and the venerable Shit Rag
. This show is all-ages, $8 general/$6 members. No drugs, no alcohol.
From not quite as far away, Milwaukee's S.S. Web
offers folk punk and Seattle's Ando Ehlers
some death polka, with locals The Smashed Glass
delivering speedy Irish folk, all at the Jambalaya starting at 9 p.m. Cover is $5, show is 21-and-over.
If you're in McKinleyville and you like to go out, you'll probably be at Six Rivers Brewery anyway, so please know local faves Kingfoot
will be there to entertain you starting around 9 p.m. No cover, but you'll probably need to buy a beer or some wings.
