Friends and family have given me grief for not including enough (or any) McKinleyville venues in this column. As a native son of Dow's Prairie, I feel compelled to remind them that I still have the homegrown attitude and nascent fuck-you-a-tiveness of that place trapped in my character (Mack Town, I owe you NOTHING). But on a more reasonable note, while my beloved hometown has come a long way from the days when "horses had the right to vote," there is still a relative dearth of music venues in that lovely and unincorporated land of Nod. However, I am happy to say that by the end of this week's edition, I will have mentioned three McKinleyville music options. The Clam Beach Inn is one of my personal favorite bars, as it is an old neighborhood haunt, and at 6 p.m. it will host a set by guitarist Anna Hamilton (free). Come out for an evening but stick to the roads: We have coyotes, bears and mountain lions. Oh my.
