Arcata Eye Scene

A-town art, music, theatre. Mostly music. Updated Wednesdays.

Historic occasion

Catholicism’s spread into Ireland… Portuguese imperialism… importation of African dance… Catholicism again… it all exploded to a drum beat as the last 1,500 years of Western Civ was perhaps unintentionally played out at Inferknow’s Green Day 2008 at Portuguese Hall where Jameson Irish Whiskey and Samba Na Chuva clashed happily.

Organizer Brian Loose noted that the Saturday falderal was respectful of the Vatican’s request to keep the St. Paddy’s partying free from Holy Week.

So it all worked out pretty well, all that history stuff, except for the snakes.
