The Clarke Museum is putting on a Cinco de Mayo block party at 6 p.m. The free event is a child-friendly celebration of Mexican culture with refreshments for purchase and music by Angel Vargas as well as Wynsome Winds.
Later on, lots of old-timey sounds flood the town of Arcata tonight. At the Sanctuary, the pre-microphone Americana song stylings of guitarist and singer Meredith Axelrod will be available for your ears at 7:30 p.m. ($10-$25 sliding scale). Local folk duo Hannah Rosencrans and Alison Kinney open the show. Two hours later over at Humbrews, four-man folk-grass barn stompers Poor Man's Whiskey return to our fair land to preach the hootenanny gospel to the faithful ($15).
