Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013's Lowdown

Sure, it's the first day of Reggae on the River, but oh me oh my oh, would you look at what's goin' on at the Mad River Brewery on Thursday night? You'll want to run on down to Blue Lake with your rag top down to sing along with the memorable tunes of Gillian Welch, who has to be one of the most covered songwriters by Humboldt County artists.

To be clear, Miss Welch will not be in attendance (surely, she has a good excuse). Instead, the Tribute Night will feature a gaggle of local Gillian groupies -- specifically performers The Lonesome Roses, Josephine Johnson, Colin Begall, Rachel Beccaria, Rich Kearns, Zach Zwerdling, Hot Wings, Trillium and Jo Kuzelka. Take your dear someone out to watch 'em sing that rock and roll.

Also, Pressure/Anya fans (and there are many of them) should take note that the regular Dirty Thursday dance party has moved this week to Nocturnum from its regular home at the Eureka Inn while some remodeling is done to the Palm Lounge.

More Thursday love in your Lowdown below and, oh, what the hell, a video of Chris Crofton and the Alcoholic Stuntband -- they're playing at The Shanty tonight -- singing a song about wrestler The Original Sheik. Whee!
