The Jam is hosting a new benefit for local quartet Hollow Down, who were the victims of a tour bus fire earlier this year that left the group with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Come join The Bow-Legged Buzzards, The Bored Again and Flying Hell Fish — a delightful Simpsons reference — at 2 p.m. as everyone raises aid for their unfortunate comrades. The show is a give-what-you-can affair so dig deep at the door if you can afford it.

  • Abbey Weaver brought high drama to the lobby of the Eureka Theater on Sunday night.
Once again, the Academy Awards lit up the screen at the Eureka Theater for the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission's sixth annual Red Carpet Gala. Commissioner Cassandra Hesseltine and her crew handed out awards to film-friendly folks and businesses during commercial breaks and the crowd cheered the on-screen wins. Well, most of them. And, as they do every year, attendees brought the glitz and glamour. Could we have used a tuxedo gown? Sure. But scroll through the slideshow below and you'll find no lack of fancy frocks, luxe tuxes, high-voltage hair and even a classic kilt. (Sniff. I promised myself I wouldn't cry ...)

Happy Birthday, Eureka Theater

  • The Eureka Theater.

The Eureka Theater is many things. It's a stately cinema hall lovingly restored to its Art Deco glory through years of hard work by preservationists and volunteers. Its stage supports artists of all types: musicians, dancers, comedians and vaudeville performers. Its velvet seats transport audiences back through decades with classic and cult films, many previously only seen on TVs and tablets — without that special sense of shared experience in a vast auditorium on a full and magnificent screen. It is a grande dame and a class act all the way. On Saturday, March 2, the Eureka Theater turns 80 years old. Cue applause.

Celebrate its octogenarian status with a one-time-only 35mm screening of the first movie ever shown at the Eureka Theater: Going Places (1938) on Saturday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. ($8). Settle in for that feeling you get when you sit in the same cushioned seat some chap sat in 80 years before you, eyes up at the same screen, watching the same credits roll.

Come back Sunday for more nostalgia. It's a 1939 Triple Feature all day March 3 from 2:30 to 8:30 p.m. with showings of The Wizard of Oz, Destry Rides Again and At The Circus — with cartoons and shorts filling in the gaps. Admission is at original 1939 prices: 35 cents for adults, 10 cents for kids 12 and under. All you need is couch cushion change, plus a few singles for a bag of popcorn and a soda. At these prices, dropping a fiver or two in the theater renovation jar is easy-peasy. Beer, wine and cocktails are available for those with ID at the respectable hour of 4:30 p.m. Cheers, old gal.

Honk if you love the annual Sunrise at the Refuge (aka Aleutian Cackling Goose Fly-Off). It's time again to see thousands of Aleutian cackling geese fly off their night time roost. Show up bundled up Saturday and Sunday, March 2 and 3 at 6 a.m. at the Richard J. Guadagno Visitor Center, Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge to watch the magic take off and then enjoy activities at the Visitor Center.

Sundressed is an Arizona band built around the songs of founder Trevor Hedges, whose histrionic sobriety is a force of power and effect beyond recall in the DNA of the music. This is rock music catharsis and there are qualified technicians along for the ride. Specifically, there is awakebutstillinbed from San Jose, as well as Sunsleeper from Salt Lake City and Alien Boy from Portland, Oregon. Everyone mentioned can be found at the Outer Space tonight at 7 p.m. The sliding door-fee is pretty do-able at $6-$20.

Cape Breton fiddlers, Canadian masters of the form, and wife and husband duo Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy bring their ecstatic bow and string melodic ascendance to the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts this evening at 7 p.m. ($25-$49). Along with the Highland Celtic fiddle regalia imported to the maritime provinces of Canada, this couple will accompany the fantastic dancing and tapping of their quintuple offspring. This is truly a family hoedown and you would be foolish to miss it if you can afford it.

It's a sleepy midwinter night out here in the fringe-lit sticks of the great southern tip of the Pacific Northwest. However, we still have some free musical options and for that we should thank the great machines of human grace in our wet and remote outpost. Steve Lloyd entertains the Clam Beach Tavern at 6 p.m. with a mix of covers and originals interpreted on his acoustic guitar. And at 7 p.m. at the Redwood Curtain Brewery, you can be a part of the Open Bluegrass Jam if you so please. No experience beyond an appreciation of the style and an ear for a tune is needed.

Oh my, there's another metal show at the Siren's Song this evening. If you stack your pocket change in the right sock this week (you know the one, the purple beast you keep knotted up next to your bed, full of coins to deal defensive violence upon any midnight intruder who dares to interrupt your perfect slumber), it shouldn't even be a thing to cough up the $8 required to get in the door. Once in, you can enjoy Oakland's Necrot and Colorado's Blood Incantation, as well as local half-stack heroes Death Mode Trippers and Grumpus at 7:30 p.m.
