Dirt Daubers, Acousta Noir at CEBU
CEBU Lounge welcomes two acts this weekend:
J.D. Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers on Friday and Delta Halos with Acousta Noir.
Both show start at 9:30 p.m.
The Dirt Daubers were formed by Legendary Shack Shakers front man, artist, director and country punk pioneer J.D. Wilkes in 2009. Wilkes’ “gothic preacher” persona and frantic blues harmonica whips crowds into a frenzy, all the while trading lead vocal duties with his feminine foil.
Delta Halos is the brainchild of J. Kyle Cregan. While the recordings feature multi-instruments (all performed by Cregan, with the exception of a select few), he gives the live performance a more “intimate” approach by performing the songs solo and acoustic. Delta Halos started as a studio project in 2011, and quickly took flight evolving into what it is today.
Coming from a background shaped by punk, rock and roll, roots, and various traditional folk styles, Acousta Noir brings a unique, yet oddly familiar, set of original songs to the table, along with his renditions of select and obscure cover.

CCA presents Emmett Till film
“Dar He: The Lynching of Emmett Till,” a riveting true-crime drama and winner of eight best-film awards, will be screened Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Columbia Center for the Arts.
In 1955, a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked off the train and into a world he could never understand — a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos.
Young Emmett crossed that line and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. This riveting play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confession of the men accused of Till’s lynching.
Film begins at 7:30 p.m. tickets are $5 at the door. This film has not been rated; runtime: 70 minutes. Columbia Center for the Arts is located at 215 Cascade Ave. in downtown Hood River.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
