EPIC puts on its annual fundraiser at 9 p.m. at the Mateel Center in Redway to celebrate four decades of fighting the good fight against the planet-polluting plutocrats who seem to increasingly make up the top tier of the political class in this country. The folk music-heavy event features performances by Joanne Rand, Casey Neill and the Norway Rats, and Alice DiMicele. All proceeds will go toward EPIC's ongoing mission to stop the Big Guys from making our forests look like the collapsing world in the third act of The NeverEnding Story so I would consider the $20 ticket price money well spent.
Catch a bad one at Humbrews at 10 p.m. when innovative rapper, time-traveling visionary Gorillaz collaborator and cousin of Ice Cube Del the Funky Homosapien takes the stage in a much welcomed return to Arcata ($25, $20 advance). With special guests DJ Tyler and DJ D'Vinity.
