Does Your Band Play Any Original ‘Squatch Songs? Wanna Maybe Play at the Finding Bigfoot Festival?

Couple of alerts for ambitious Humboldt musicians: We’re approaching the April 11th submission deadline for pickers/grinners who’d like to be considered for a slot during this year’s weeklong Humboldt Folklife Festival — more details on that here

But news of another potential high-profile gig has found its way to LoCO. The production company behind Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot show are in the process of planning a two hour-long series finale — they squeezed out nine seasons! — that will center around a festival taking place at Willow Creek’s Veteran’s Park this coming April 29. The idea behind the event? It’s been 50 years since the Patterson-Gimlin film was shot at nearby Bluff Creek and you better believe we need to celebrate that piece of grainy, economy-boosting footage. Bobo and the gang are slated to attend. So there. 

Here’s where you (potentially) come in: The Finding Bigfoot Festival needs bands! If your group has original material (for licensing reasons) and would like to be considered for a slot — and maybe end up in the showcontact Cana. Also: Anyone seen bigfoot? Seems like finding bigfoot would be a good way to land this plane.
