These guys are not small time. The fact you can see them in that tiny, quirky gem of a bar, well, even you deserve that treat; don't let your low self-esteem tell you otherwise. The joint's 21-and-over, obv, and the music should start around 10 p.m. No word on the cover, so load up with some cash and be prepared to buy some merch.
Elsewhere, The Holy Trinity Church of Trinidad turns 141 years old this year and at 3 p.m., in celebration, an ensemble of string and oboe musicians will perform the music of Handel, Bach and Beethoven. Cellist Peter Kibbe of Los Angeles is the featured guest, along with recent-arrival-to-Humboldt, composer and conductor Michael Kibbe, who will world premiere his ode to oboes, Obo-dacious. Local musicians and members of the Eureka Symphony Erika Blackwell, Julie Fulkerson, SherryHanson, Don Morris, Kit Morris, Vanessa Kibbe, Ellen Weiss and Kira Weiss complete the ensemble.
