The Pink Floyd Concert Experience starring House of Floyd
Saturday, March 8, 2014 | 8:00 PM
The S.F. Bay Area’s HOUSE OF FLOYD performs the music of Pink Floyd, and has gained a strong following for their unique ability to enthuse both the hard-core fans of the early adventurous Floyd and those who enjoy the songs and soundscapes that later brought them widespread appeal. They capture the essence of each of the various Pink Floyd eras from the formative Syd Barrett days, through the 70’s and the final post-Waters era. In the Pink Floyd tradition, a HOUSE OF FLOYD concert incorporates sound effects, screen projection, moving lights & state of the art laser show. You may even see a giant inflatable pig! Tickets are $25, and are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, or in person at Annex 39 Antiques, The Works in Eureka, and Wildberries Marketplace in Arcata.
Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe presents
Why We Ride: a documentary film
March 15, 2014 | 7:30 PM (doors 7:00 PM)
Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe is bringing the acclaimed motorcycle documentary, Why We Ride, to the big screen in Eureka! "Why We Ride is a story about who we are. Individuals with a desire to dream, discover and explore. Seeking a life outside our daily confinements and sharing those moments together. It’s a story about the journey, not the destination. Motorcycles represent the milestones of our lives. From a kid’s dream come true, to a retiree’s return to freedom. From a family riding together on the sand dunes, to hundreds of choppers carving through the canyons – the bond is the same. It’s about the passion of the riders and the soul of their machines. Your senses will heighten as the world rushes in, your heart will beat to the pulse of the engine, your mind will race and set you free. Once you let a motorcycle into your life, it will change you forever." -Why We Ride. Tickets are $10, on sale at Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe at 440 F Street in Eureka, or online at Brown Paper Tickets. Door prizes provided by BLMC, Eureka Motorsport, Humboldt Motorsports, North Coast Cycle, Pacific Motorsports, and Redwood Harley-Davidson.

Fourth Friday Flix: The Blues Brothers
March 21, 2014 | 7:30 PM
There are two kinds of people in this world—the ones that love The Blues Brothers, and the poor dopes that haven’t ever seen it. Whichever one you are, you’re in luck. Back for a one-night-only limited engagement, we are pleased to present this big-screen extravaganza here in this venerable architectural complex, the world famous Eureka Theater, on the banks of the clean green Humboldt Bay. What's your pleasure--record number of car crashes? Check. Carrie Fisher wielding bazookas, flame-throwers, bombs, and machine guns? Check. Illinois Nazis and rowdy country music (and western music) fans? Check and double check. Showstopping musical numbers by Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, and James Brown? Why are you still reading this? Get your hat and shades and get in line, already. And please remember people, that no matter who you are, and what you do to live, thrive and survive, there are still some things that make us all the same. You. Me. Them. Everybody. Everybody.
