  • The HSU Calypso Band plays the Van Duzer Theatre at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2.

The Humboldt State University Calypso Band will be performing with the university's Percussion Ensemble at the Van Duzer tonight at 8 p.m. ($10). Expect an evening of modern modal pieces peppered with Latin rhythms and a new arrangement of a Tito Puente tune.

Local fantastic roots-rock trio Kingfoot brings its bluesy and deadly danceable set to the Logger Bar starting at 9 p.m. (free). I always enjoy Kingfoot shows and the crowd it brings to the Logger is full of the very definition of bonhomie.

Also at 9 p.m. but 20 miles down the road, Diggin' Dirt will stomp out a post-Art's Alive! set at Siren's Song for the true Eureka musical cognoscenti to dance to after the riff-raff have cleared the streets with the promise of an early bed (price TBA).

Local tastemaker promoters YAMS present a night of hip hop as new Arcata upstart rap group Nada Crew share the Jam's stage at 9 p.m. with hip-hop/soul/R&B outfit The New Traditions ($5).

A half hour later and an alleyway and a block northeast, the Arcata Theater Lounge presents Bangladesh-by-way-of-NYC indie electronic artist and Skrillex protégé Jai Wolf, who is on tour supporting his acclaimed 2016 Mom+Pop Records E.P. Kindred Spirits ($20/$15 advance). Kidwaste (great name) opens.
