Tonight's Setlist: Kinetic Alternatives

Posted By on Sat, May 24, 2014 at 10:16 AM

Kinetics is happening (yay!) with the requisite "secret" Halvorsen Park party. But what else to do on a Saturday night?

First, as noted yesterday, the Bob Dylan Birthday Bash continues out in Blue Lake.

Second, the Jambalaya puts forth an interesting lineup: bassist Bobby Vega, whose credits include playing with Sly & The Family Stone and Etta James; with drummer Prairie Prince, a founding member of Journey, and member of The Tubes and Todd Rundgren's band; plus guitarist Chris Rossbach, who played with Zigaboo Modeliste. SuperHelix joins the trio. Cover is $15, show is 21-and-over.

Third, on the other side of the bay, as well as the gender and musical spectrum, Seattle's dancey modern rock act (and self-declared Yeah Yeah Yeahs fanatics) Mrs. Howl plays at the Palm Lounge with local dark punk disco queens Space Biscuit and the bluesier Plumb Uglies. The show promoters promise Mrs. Howl will start at 9 p.m., so arrive on time. A $3-to-$5 donation is asked and the show is for adults of legal drinking age and up.

Finally, that show has some stiff competition over in A-town, where cute-moody-rockers-from-the-Bay-Area Finish Ticket celebrate the Atlantic Records re-release of their album Tears You Apart. Finish Ticket is spending most of the summer hitting big festivals and large venues, so this is a rare chance to not only catch an alt/rock/indie/etc. band like this in Humboldt, but to do so in the sweet embrace of the Arcata Playhouse. Show time is 8 p.m., tickets are $10 and the show is 21-and-over.
