FRIDAY LOWDOWN: Lost Coast Fest Starts Today; Three-Days of Music for Ears of Any Age
Options! On this Humboldt Friday don’t forget that the Savage Henry Comedy Festival isn’t the only three-day, multi-venue event vying for your weekend entertainment dollar. No, human. The fine folk at Breakfast All Day Collective are attempting one of their most ambitious feats to date with the inaugural Lost Coast Fest which, if you’re hungry, serves you up more bands than you can shake a drumstick at.
A benefit for Centro del Pueblo and The RAVEN Project, the fest packs 30+ bands into multiple shows scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Outer Space, Arcata Theatre Lounge and the Arcata Veterans Hall. So many bands! Scope the full lineup here and/or snag tickets here and support DIY joymaking.
Lots else going on this Friday, but you’ll need to scroll your Lowdown below for the deets. I am done talking.
