Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015’s Chowdown

Chrissamighty, is it Thursday already? Time feels broken this week. Here are your night’s best potential distractions while we try and fix this:

  • Humboldt Brews is hosting arguably the highest profile Thursday musical option. High-voiced folk singer Willie Watson offers some mean clawhammer banjo playing, which you can sample in the clip for his song “Mexican Cowboy” above.
  • In a savvy marketing move, North Coast Repertory Theatre is billing their staging of  Shakespeare’s Macbeth as “The Original Game of Thrones.” Hey! You love that show! Opening gala (with champagne!) tonight.
  • We forgot to mention yesterday that, through March 1st, The Morris Graves Museum of Art will act as an IRL Buzzfeed during its Awkward Family Photos show. Over 200 regrettable images! Scope some perms!
