Where to be seen in the Scene


Published in the Eureka Reporter 2.9.07

Oh, the wonderful things to do in Humboldt County. My test results have come back from my Lab of Awesome, and the results are as follows for the weekend of Feb. 8-9.

Friday, Feb. 8

It’s a rare good time for underagers tonight.

Shows for the over-21:
Venue: The Vista, 9 p.m.
Bands: TERRIBLE TWOS (Detroit) — sounds like being electrocuted — 2,910 MySpace friends. Fire Demons — local psychedelic/metal/punk — 189 MySpace friends

Shows for everyone!

Venue: Mosgos, 8 p.m. — Editor’s Pick

Why should you go to this show? These bands:

Band: Steel Toed Slippers (jam band/funk) will be having an all-ages CD release party. A rare event indeed. There will be blended nonalcoholic drinks for the young’uns and the bar will be open for the older folks. Steel Toed Slippers are an ambitious high school-age band made up of youths from Arcata and Southern Humboldt. These talented young people’s first CD should be a pretty good show.
