Talented local early jazz trio Belles of the Levee will be singing and plucking tunes from The Great American Songbook at the Palm lounge in Eureka at 9 p.m. ($5). These ladies are fantastic live and the venue fits their vintage vibe well.
The Arcata Theater Lounge is bringing back locally favored electronic act Minnesota at 9:30 p.m. ($15 advance, $20 door). The deep bass dance grooves appeal to many of our (clears throat) seasonal visitors, so Minnesota's shows have had a tendency to sell out in years past. DOV1 opens.
Following a 7 p.m. showing of Oscar-winning director Ava Duvernay's 2008 documentary This Is The Life about the late '80s origins of West Coast hip-hop in a South Central Los Angeles health food store/venue, stars of the film Abstract Rude and Myka 9 will do a Q&A and perform a set at 10 p.m. at the Miniplex. Admission is free with a movie ticket to the film.
Local show promotion team YAMS is kicking off their two-night Halloween Party at Blondies at 9 p.m. with dance rock power trio The Apollo Era and psychedelic dream pop band Paradise Inc., featuring the truly slick guitarist Leo Plummer from local funk favorites Object Heavy. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
