(VIDEOS) SUNDAY LOWDOWN: MDC! Bruce Molsky! Bob Log III!

Your Humboldt Sunday offers you several musical ways to forget about the coming Monday as long as possible (sample the following highlights above, left to right):

  • Punk elder statesmen Millions of Dead Cops return to headline a night of aural destruction at Outer Space in Arcata.
  • Bruce Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, featuring its Grammy-nominated fiddler namesake and leader, blow into the Arcata Playhouse for a night of acoustic string goodness. 
  • Honky-tonk spaceman Bob Log III is back for another night of scuzzy bliss at The Alibi in Arcata.

Details on those shows and more in your Lowdown below.
