The Westhaven Center for the Arts is having its third Friday of the month jazz night this evening at 7 p.m. The title of tonight's show is "Nicaraguan, Bolivian, and Cuban diaries" and features regular trio RLA backing performances by Don Baraka on sax, flute and bass, as well as a spoken word piece by Doc Stull, who will be speaking about his recent travels to Latin lands (sliding scale $5-$20).
The Miniplex presents a showcase of talent from the local scene as well as returning and touring champions. Tomemitsu/Eagle Scouts are a portmanteau of two rock groups helmed by two friends: Martin Roark from Los Angeles and former Arcata/current Portland power jammer Andrew "Gary" Mart. Joining this binary musical iteration tonight are Humboldt electronic bomp couple Dank Son, D3D helmed by the brothers Valdez and a rumored appearance by Opossum Sun Trail. Be there at 10 p.m. ($5).
