From the Hum: Americana vs. Country

Posted By on Sun, Nov 10, 2013 at 9:12 AM


Americana laced with pedal steel and banjo is on the menu Sunday night with the Black Lillies at Humboldt Brews. Lovely and thoughtful, both invoking melancholy and keeping it at bay, like the last leg of a long, lonely road trip. Tickets are $10, show's 21-and-over, music starts around 9 p.m.


Making for a tough choice, over at the Arcata Playhouse, Brooklyn's Sweetback Sisters recall the best of country music from the Everlys to the Judds, with a spirited twist of Wanda Jackson. On tap, the traditional subjects of heartbreak, revenge, remorse and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wrong. Brooklyn pal and performer Austin McCutchen opens. Doors at 7:30 p.m., music at 8 p.m., tickets are $15 general, $13 students and members.
