Friday, Dec. 20, 2013's Lowdown

Your Lowdown would be remiss if we did not mention Friday's highest profile show. Believe it or not, it's been 15 years since Everlast released the single "What It's Like," at its peak, one of those inescapable hits that probably got airplay on whatever station you were listening to at the time, regardless of the format.

So in recognition of the fact that the onetime House of Pain frontman will be playing two shows in Humboldt over the next couple nights -- one at the Mateel Community Center, another at the Winema Theatre -- let's take a visual/aural shot of nostalgia via YouTube. Perhaps then, and only then, will you, in fact, know what it is like.
