Day two of the Trinidad Bay Art and Music Festival gets underway at 2 p.m. at Trinidad Town Hall with Tales of the Baroque with Trio Seraphim. Four hours later, you'll find dance music courtesy of the Delta Nationals outside at the Mad River Brewery playing for free. Mon Petit Chou is at Cafe Mokka playing also for free and at 8 p.m. doing its French-Canadian thing, which is great music to drink cappuccinos to by the way. Temporary Resonance Trio is at Trinidad Town Hall at 8 p.m. to keep the Trinidad Festival moving along. The '80s Mercedes for the Ladies returns to the Wave Lounge in Blue Lake Casino at 9 p.m. so put on your leg warmers and headbands and get ready to dance to Eyes Anonymous. When I first read the press release about the band Talking Dreads, I was a little perplexed by the band's move to cover Talking Heads songs with a reggae-tinted groove but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. As I went back and listened to some Heads, I could definitely envision where reggae could definitely fit these songs. You'll have a chance to hear this first hand tonight at Humboldt Brews around 9:30 p.m., when the band gets on the stage. "Head Dread" Mystic Bowie is tight with Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth of the Talking Heads and he was a member of The Tom Tom Club, so you know you've got some real fans and real talented musicians tonight. Tickets are $10 for this show.
