Music Tonight: Wednesday, Oct. 18

In Old Town Eureka, L.A.'s pyschobilly band The Rocketz wrap up a U.S. tour at The Siren's Song Tavern with The Silver Shine all the way out from Budapest. I'm guessing this is their first time in Humboldt, so give 'em a warm welcome. Just $5 gets you in the door, so maybe leave a tip to help these folks get airfare home. Burning Man fashion fans Rising Appalachia return to the Arcata Theatre Lounge around 8:30 p.m. Their last two shows here were sold out, so you might want to get tickets ahead of time. With roots in folk music and a "devotion to world culture" you get an interesting mix of music and great harmonies, thanks to sisters Leah and Chloe. They're joined on this $30 bill by Gill Landry. Vancouver-based eight-man band Five Alarm Funk hits the Hum Brews stage tonight at 9 p.m. I'd explain their sound a bit more, but thankfully the name does all the work for you sometimes. This one's $10.
