Arts! Arcata is in full swing tonight starting around 6 p.m. so you'll be able to check out plenty of fine local musicians hawkin' their sonic wares. Over at Wrangletown Cider Co. — remember the old recycling center? — you'll get your first dose of local electric Americana band Rogues' Gallery around then. At 6 p.m., the Mad River Brewery Tap Room welcomes Frogbite, who I'm told play "Amphibian Rock," so that's not something you'll want to miss. It's a free show, as is the one happening at the Logger Bar just three hours later with out-of-towners Gun Hill Royals, who hail from the City of Angels and are West Coast country rockers playing "rug cutters and barn burners" with country waltzes thrown in for good measure. Band member Kyle seemed like a good guy via email and is excited to play up in the Lake o' Blue. Give the guys a warm Humboldt County welcome at this free show. I still haven't had the chance to see Portland's Roselit Bone but I've heard nothing but rave reviews regarding this "apocalyptic cowboy" band so take that for what it's worth. The band is joined by local country band Mojave Green at Siren's Song Tavern at 9 p.m. No word if this is a free show but you'll get your money's worth even if you have to cough up a few shekels. Local Pink Floyd tribute Money (including yours truly) returns to the Wave Lounge at the Blue Lake Casino at 9 p.m. for a free show to celebrate keyboardist Tomek's birthday. He loves whipped cream vodka, so buy him a shot. If you missed Rogues' Gallery earlier this evening, catch 'em opening for the No Good Redwood Ramblers tonight at 9:30 p.m. at Humboldt Brews, where I'm hearing the Ramblers will be joined by local fiddler Evan Morden at this bargain of a $5 show.
