  • Sugar Cane Jane cats around the Arcata Theatre Lounge.
Rowr. On Saturday, Oct. 10, the Arcata Theatre Lounge turned into a bit of a cat house as the Alley Cat Cabaret & Purrlesque slinked onstage to raise money for the Companion Animal Foundation. Photographer Alexander Woodard was on hand (paw?) to capture the feline frivolity. The evening featured more kittenish kitsch from locals Blue Angel Burlesque, Beat Vixens Burlesque, Bada Bling! Burlesque and Va Va Voom Burlesque Vixens, and Bay Area headliners Sugar Cane Jane, Ophelia Coeur de Noir and Laika Fox. Sassafrass and Laura Lopez-Ayllon brought the hip-shaking belly dance, while Lizzy Moonbeam, Luna Eclipse and Mr. Humboldt himself provided a little mood music. Take a peek at all the pussyfooting around in the slideshow below. And remember: Spay and neuter your pets.

All right, kids. The wait is over.

Center Arts just announced its 2015-2016 lineup and the offerings are good and plenty. From the Waifs to Weird Al to the Chieftains to Cooder (Ry), the good folks at Humboldt State University have done it again. There are Martinis of the Pink persuasion and Kids on Milk Cartons to whet your musical whistles. And if you haven't recovered from jazz legend Cassandra Wilson's last minute cancellation last season, pull yourself together because she's back. 

Some of this season's highlights include: Eddie Izzard, StarTalk Live! with Bill Nye the Science Guy, Melissa Etheridge, The Blue Man Group and John Prine. Take a second to let that soak in. Feels good, right? Feels "Everybody Wants to Feel Like You" good, doesn't it? Yeah. It's like that. 

To view the full lineup, check out their snazzy website at www2.humboldt.edu/centerarts/events, or check your mailboxes for the glossy goodness of the catalog. Prices vary per event and students get a sweet discount. For more info call CenterArts at 707-826-3928.

Nicely done, Center Arts. Nicely done.

Fantastic news from Blue Lake – Dell'Arte gave out 10 Blue Lake Rising grants last night following the inaugural Mad River Alliance Steelhead Days event. Blue Lake resident and musician Claire Reynolds shared an overview of the awards, including one bestowed on her band, Patronus.

"The projects ranged from the Old Crows' plan to put in a bench on the levee trail to an elementary student planning a percussion workshop for kids. Patronus got a grant to make a music video that represents the town, its people and places. All of the projects must be completed by July 2014, so things will be happening quickly."

More on Blue Lake Rising.

Patronus' Laurel Goldsmith, right.
