It's the downtown Blue Lake neck of the Humboldt Folklife Festival going on for free all dang day with music by Bayou Swamis, Kingfoot, The Hossettes, and many more.
Marimba and vibraphone percussion duo Easthama — comprised of Claremont, California's Lindsey Eastham and Hiromu Nagahama from Fukuoka, Japan — is playing a concert tonight at the Sanctuary at 7 p.m. ($15/$13 seniors). The award-winning malletin' twosome will bust out some chromatic ecstasy for your lucky ears in the shoe-free confines of the little chapel on J street.
At the same hour over at The Outer Space come check out garage DIY outfit Surf Curse along with fellow Los Angeles-based post-punkers LunchLady. ($8-$10 sliding scale). The always amazing Venus Milk provides local flavor.
