Tonight's Setlist: St. Paddy's, a Happy Birthday, a benefit and beyond

Posted By on Sat, Mar 15, 2014 at 9:57 AM

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day — oh yeah, that — early with a Wild Irish Barn Dance at the Arcata Veterans' Hall starting at 7:30 p.m. Sue Moon will call to the enthusiastic tunes of Blake Ritter and Sam McNeill. All dances will be taught with no partner or experience necessary. Admission $7 general, $6 Humboldt Folklife Society members, students and seniors. Free for kids under 12.

Well, hey, look who's turning a whole decade old? Join Wild Otis and The Fickle Hillbillies for Humboldt Brews' 10th birthday party starting at 9 p.m. This is a free show and Hum Brews' proprietors promise, "Come dance and get wild listening to the music your parents warned you about. Guaranteed good times or your money back!"


More on the dancing/benefit/country front — Kenny Ray and the Mighty Rovers brings its passion for roots country, honkytonk and big-band swing to the Bayside Grange in a benefit for the Bayside Grange Kitchen Fund starting at 7 p.m. If you need instruction, note that doors open at 6 p.m., with Steve and Clara McDonald offering a dance lesson at 6:15 p.m. It's $8 general, $5 students and free for kids 12 and under. Frolic the night away!

If you prefer the spiky sounds of a funk/jam band, you're also in luck because Liquid Kactus is celebrating the release of its new studio album, Straight Crooked, at the Jambalaya. Tickets are $10 and include a copy of the new album. The show starts at 9 p.m. with an opening set by skasters Meskalito. This gig is 21-and-over.


If none of the above lift your liner, what about a reggae-themed benefit for GMO Free Humboldt? Jah Sun, Rocker-T, Woven Roots, Ishi Dube, Bobby Hustle and more take over the ATL with doors at 9 p.m. and a cover of $20 for those 21-and-over.
