Music Tonight - Saturday, May 20

  • Holus Bolus

One of the more cheekily named local bands, For Folk's Sake — or is it For Folks' Sake? — are at the Mad River Brewery Tap Room at 6 p.m. and for free. Enjoy the show, the local beer and feel free to let me know how to spell the band's name correctly. "One-Man-Psychedelic-Acoustiloop musician" Holus Bolus also known as Tom Boylan is stopping by the Westhaven Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. to do his loopy groove thing. Opening up the show is Trinidad local singer-songwriter Bruce Taylor. Not sure on a ticket price for this one. In case you missed The Eureka Symphony performing whatever it is they performed last night, you've got another chance tonight at 8 p.m. Look above for more information. Is it just me, or has Scottish fiddle music been making a strong appearance in Humboldt lately? Nothing wrong with it, of course, and with that said, the Hanneke Cassel Band is in town tonight at the Arcata Playhouse at 8 p.m. Expect to hear plenty from last month's release of Trip to Walden Pond with her band featuring husband and cellist Mike Block along with guitarist Christopher Lewis. $20 will get you a seat to hear these virtuosos all together in an intimate setting. For something a little jammier, head to Humboldt Brews to catch Edge of the West with Buddy Cage which features members of Jefferson Starship, the David Nelson Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage and Great American Taxi. The jams will weave in and out and will start around 9 p.m. Not sure on the ticket price for this one, but maybe something in the $25 and up range would make sense. Humboldt's favorite Beatles tribute band Silver Hammer returns to the Wave Lounge in the Blue Lake Casino and Hotel at 9 p.m. tonight and for free. Sing and dance along, and give it up for the band. Filling about three hours with songs that are mostly under three minutes ain't no small task. In Arcata, you'll find "all vinyl garage rock DJs" Garage Au-Go-Go spinning it up at the Alibi joined by local spin-masters Adam and Red with the show starting around 11 p.m. and for only $2.
