Friday, Aug. 16’s Lowdown

Flippin’ sweet! The Mendocino-based, all-human Flynn Creek Circus has once again erected their big top tent in Humboldt, this year in Arcata’s Creamery District. If you happen to step right up, expect to be visually assaulted by eye-demanding aerialists, death-defying acrobats and feats of juggling wizardry. Note: No animals were caged during production of this circus.

Details on that and other Friday delights in your Lowdown listings below.
