Roland Rock plays instrumentals and quirky originals at Siren's Song Tavern tonight at 8:30 p.m., also for free. For something a bit more in the reggae vein, Humboldt Brews is the place to be as the Irie Rockers play their brand of reggae with influences from across the spectrum which will get you groovin' and rockin' on the dance floor around 9:30 p.m. $10 gets you in the door. There's a special tribute to Chris Cornell tonight at The Jam starting around 10 p.m. Superunknown — comprised of local heavy-hitters Piet Dalmolen on guitar, Pete Ciotti on drums, Tomek Zajaczkowski on the keys and Pat Quinn on the bass — will play songs from the Soundgarden, Temple of The Dog and Audioslave days as a tribute to a voice we recently lost. A $10 bill gets you in the door for this needed tribute.

Classic Country music is on the bill this evening at the Mad River Brewery Tap Room courtesy of Orick's Redwood Ramblers who are coming down to play for free around 6 p.m. Just a bit north, you'll hear from The Jim Lahman Band laying down some "blues funk and good old rock 'n' roll" at The Westhaven Center for the Arts at 7 p.m. The band features Jim on vocals and guitar, Jim (no relation) on drums, Tim on bass and Ron on harmonica.

They'll be in it for the long haul, playing until about 1 a.m. Starting around the same time, you can hear the USGGO (Ultra Secret Good Guy Association) at Six Rivers Brewery playing for free. Catch their improv-heavy jazz and feel free to leave a tip to show your appreciation.

Ruff Enough

Who's a good doggie? Find out this weekend when Lost Coast Kennel Club hosts its 17th annual All Breed Dog Shows June 30-July 2 at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds (free admission, $5 parking).

The event is your chance to see some of the top dogs in the country looking and doing their best during three days of conformation, obedience trials and rally. The show grounds open at 7 a.m. each day with competition beginning at 8:30 a.m. and going through Best in Show (generally late afternoon). This year's extra fun events are the 4-to-6-month puppy class on Friday at 11 a.m. and the Pee Wee class for handlers aged 5-9. Sunday at noon. After Best in Show on Friday and Saturday, don't miss the lure coursing "fun runs," where dogs show off their speed, endurance and determination. Not only are the shows a great place to learn more about your favorite breed (talk to the experts!), you can also browse dog-related vendors, take part in an "exceptional" raffle and enjoy great food. Organizers say the event will most likely only go until about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, so keep that in mind. And while you may be tempted to show off your fur babies' good looks and talent (like I am), please leave them at home. Only dogs eligible to compete are allowed on the show grounds. Ruff.

Fred & Jr. (no relation) get the weekend underway at Mad River Brewery's Tap Room this evening at 6 p.m. and they'll be doing their swing/jazz thing for free while you enjoy the sunshine and local beer. Down in Arcata at The Miniplex, you'll find the "finest in retro synth dark wave, think Siouxie and the Banshees for the David Lynch set," courtesy of Troller out of Austin along with fellow Holodeck label mate Samantha Glass from Madison, Wisonsin. Rounding out the bill is noise artist Collin Gorman Weiland out of Minneapolis and locals Paint Shadows anchoring the 9 p.m. show. This show's got a sliding scale from $5 up to $10.

ROSELIT BONE
  • Roselit Bone

Spaghetti western fans should catch Portland's Roselit Bone. The band is on the road supporting its newest album Blister Steel, which just came out earlier this month. American Standard Time describes their sound as something "like Marty Robbins meets The Cramps, or a Goblin soundtrack to a spaghetti western, ranchero fantasy meets greased up country in a magical reality." I'm not sure I could do any better, so I leave it right there. They're joined at the Siren's Song Tavern at 8 p.m. with the debut performance of locals Mojave Green which features former members of Cliff Dallas & the Death Valley Troubadours and Rooster McClintock, so you'll find hints of Bakersfield Country, rock and some honk thrown in. I think it's a free show, so have a blast.

LONE STAR JUNCTION
  • Lone Star Junction

Eel River Brewing Company in Fortuna has a bit of a party going on today with live music starting around 1 p.m. and featuring local bands Lone Star Junction, Kindred Spirits and The Kent Stephenson Band. Music goes until about 7 p.m., I believe, and it (the music) is all free. Vintage Americana fans the Delta Nationals make a stop at the Mad River Brewery Tap Room at 6 p.m. this evening to help you empty your pint glasses and get you out on the dance floor. They won't ask for any of your money, nor are they likely to refuse it. Over at The Space in Bayside, James Gadd, Steve Russin and Dale Winget are performing acoustic-based folk and rock covers along with originals thrown in for good measure. Show starts around 7:30 p.m. and I'm not sure what the cover charge is, but it's a fundraiser for The Space (and Humboldt Light Opera Company) so your ticket goes to a good cause.
