At 8 p.m. the Arcata Playhouse hosts NYC musician Ryan Keberle and his quintet Catharsis for an evening of protest-charged jazz played by some of the very best and brightest on the scene (price TBA).
An hour later at the Miniplex, you can dance your ... well I don't want to say dance your ass off because that makes no sense really. Have you seen professional dancers? They usually have a pretty shapely anchor filling out the back end of their Anchor Blues, so that saying makes no sense. Anyway, you can dance toward whichever goal makes the most sense at this electro dance-stravaganza as Oakland's Diesel Dudes descend with Los Angeles' Sashcloth & Axes to bring the fun, fun, fun. Arcata's strutting metronomic muses Grocery Outlit provides local support ($5).
