Make Mine Strange

Raise your glass and say "cheers!" Strangebrew Beerfest is back for another round on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Eureka Theater ($35).

The annual festival, now in its 11th year, is a fundraiser for the ongoing restoration of the historic Eureka Theater. So what makes it strange? Here's the hops: Local breweries and cider makers are tasked with creating wild, wacky drinks all vying for awards and glory. This year, Humboldt Cider Co., Mad River Brewing Co., Six Rivers Brewery, Eel River Brewery, Redwood Curtain Brewery, The Booth, Founders and the Humboldt Homebrewers will challenge your wild side with unusual offerings. But don't fear the beers. This is the most fun you've had trying something new since, well, Strangebrew 10.

The Point's Classic Cover Contest will keep things rocking and sloshing all night. The station celebrates its 12th anniversary this year so wish the team a happy birthday. And when the time comes to steady yourself, step outside the theater for real-deal barbecue served up by Southside Mike's, along with great eats from Humboldt Hot Dogs. Be sure to line up a designated driver, dial up a car service or book a room at the Eureka Inn (within stumbling distance of the theater).

Grab a fistful of pretzels, your pals and your sea legs, and come out to the theater for a night of fermented fun. It's going down.

Since the Joan Baez show is sold out and since not everyone who reads this column is a baby boomer, here's a younger funk show to warm up your Thursday night. Sebastopol's Burnside is touring with fellow Sonoma County mamma jammas Black Sheep Brass Band for a tour that lands on the stage of The Jam tonight at 9:30 p.m. ($10). Portland players Dirty Revival fill out the bill for an evening of hip swaying.

Vote. Furthermore, encourage your extended family to vote. Spread the net farther outward and simply encourage voting in your social circles across the country. It's being taken away from us and that is not hyperbole. Marginalized people have been and are being denied the vote in record numbers. This is not a functioning democracy. Do what you can to make it one. Please. Organize, advocate, unite. We have the numbers. Use them.

  • Pilobolus

Pilobolus is a nearly five-decade modern dance troupe whose offshoot Momix should be familiar to Center Arts ticket holders from yesteryear. Named after a sun-worshipping fungus that thrives on cowpats, Pilobolus survived the generational threshing of dance trends to find a niche in great big and circus-level production in our current decade. And bless these folks, they have earned it. If you feel like seeing something on the artier side of those arena-level dance troupes with French names and titles, pirouette on down to the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts at 7 p.m. and check this out ($56, $29 students).

Somebody decided to make a musical out of one of the finest films of the outsider horror genre and the theater department at Humboldt State University is putting it on. Today is the last performance and also a 2 p.m. matinee so perhaps you should head over to Gist Hall and check out Evil Dead: The Musical while the getting is good ($15, $10 seniors and children).

RampArt Skatepark continues a solid gold run of fun shows today and tonight for the hoi polloi and aristoi together. First up at noon is a free edition of Shred Fest, a sort of thank you for the locals who regularly people the park. FHOG, Ultramafic, NacOne and DJ Goldylocks all contribute a live soundtrack to a family-friendly ramp-shredding, bowl-spinning affair.

Later on at 8 p.m. is a proper all-ages hardcore punk show when Portland bangers Long Knife open for veteran Tokyo punk rock masters Forward in what is certain to be an awesome night ($8). Local acts The ChainLinks and Racket start the fun.
