Speaking of the Fulkerson family, the primo performance space is named for Charles, a notable local classical music teacher and musician. His daughter Julie plays too, and she sends out listings of “Humboldt Bay Classical Events” via an email list (or online at classicallyhumboldt.com).
It’s time for another musical Valentine this weekend. As Shakespeare put it, “If music be the food of love, play on.” With the lover’s holiday falling on a Friday, well, the marketing departments typically stretch things out.
Haley Davis, the new Playhouse publicist noted, Home Cookin‘ is “composed of legendary local musical veterans, Joyce Hough, Gary Davidson, Fred Neighbor and Mike LaBolle serving up savory musical entrees with a saucy backbeat.” (A food reference is mandatory.)
After hosting the weekend’s Bayside Community Hall is having an all day work party on Sunday, Feb. 2, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. “We will be removing all kitchen contents and demoing the kitchen for our kitchen remodel,” they explain. “If you have the skills, tools, and/or want to help, please join us. Drop in and out, or stay the whole day. Any help is appreciated!”
Another night of dance music Thursday at ATL, this one’s called “College Night.” With doors 10 p.m. it’s clearly aimed at students who “have a late start on Fridays!” Music comes from Techstep, from the college station, KRFH, plus Eluid out of L.A. and Nips from Sacramento, all spinning house and “tasteful trap mixes” influenced by Diplo, and all with the ATL Dance Team. ATL notes, “Over the past four months our beautiful dancers have been a prominent feature upon the stage. Come be captivated as they are sure to make you stare.” I guess they’re basically GoGo dancers.

It was a Friday night, the historic dance/concert at the Arcata Bowl, just after the turn of the century was titled “Our Last Band Bash.” The oh-so-memorable night featured top indie rock bands of the day playing in a venue that was known as the Pin Room. The “bash” had our current Third District Supervisor…
The nook beside the bar is decorated in green lights, ornaments, and stars and she’s calling it “A Star is Born.” The area around the pool table is exclusively red – red lights, red ornaments, and candy canes, possibly to make victory (or loss) at the table sweeter.
Down the road at E&O Bowl they have a two-part New Years Eve HonkyTonk Hootenanny featuring two fine “boot scoot’n, knee slappin’” bands, Barn Fire and Rooster McClintock. There’s an early matinee show from 5 to 7 p.m. “for you old timers and party hoppers,” then a late show starting at 9 p.m. Also free, or as they put it, “FREE!!!”
