The Mr. Humboldt Pageant is very likely sold out tonight so I am going to assume that I am writing for the hoi polloi on the other side of the velvet rope at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. For starters, did you know that Cypress Hill is in town? Well, they are and will be playing the Pavilion at the Blue Lake Casino tonight at 7 p.m. as an ancillary part of the ongoing Inked Hearts Tattoo Expo on the main grounds. Get in the door with $50 for a refresher course on the miles of rad songs Sen Dog and company racked up beyond "Insane in the Brain."
Radio Clash returns to The Alibi tonight for a dance party curated to entertain fans of OG new wave, ska, punk and post-punk. Come join DJs Blancatron, Hardon Collider and Vulvadon at 11 p.m. to bop till you drop. It's $2 — just pocket change to get in.
