The Infinite Fest of the Lost Coast continues with another daytime show at The Outer Space at 2 p.m. ($6). Today's lineup has a little more of a punk flavor with performances by Arcata bands Slop and Thee Cissies, as well as dot Vom and Rip Room from San Francisco and Sacramento's Meet Cute. Mister Moonbeam delights with a rare diurnal performance and rounding out the bill is Toy from Olympia, Washington.
The fun continues at the Arcata Veteran's Hall at 7:30 p.m. with an all-visitors' attack of the trans-mundane, including New York City's Choked Up, Coherence, SOAR, Try the Pie and Spellling from the Bay Area, and Portland's amazing Saddle Creek Records act Black Belt Eagle Scout. Tonight's showcase features a spectrum of dreamy indie rock and heavier groovy weirdness and is a must-see ($15).
Lest you think that tonight is only an all-ages carousel, I have, believe it or not, two more fine shows to offer you. Over at the Miniplex at 10 p.m. is the completely immersive, drooling, vintage Euro-pop glory of Santiago, Chile's The Holydrug Couple. ($10). This one is worth peeling yourself away from the communal fun fest for. The evermore excellent CV kicks it all off.
Finally, tonight at 11 p.m., the Alibi is offering a heavy show for all the local headbangers and bong-rippers, as down-tuned instrumentalists Ultramafic takes over the dark side of the building with opening help from heavy riff-sters Dead Man's Tale ($3).
