Monday, Dec. 30, 2013's Lowdown

(Pictured: Pablo Rotter, 1977-2013)

Odds are you're saving your energy for tomorrow night's New Year's Eve festivities, which we totally get. But should you have the urge to feel community Monday night, your destination is Jambalaya.

As Lowdown readers know, Monday night is Getdown time at the Jam -- an informal place for some of Humboldt's finest musicians get together to bounce grooves off each other.

Tonight's a little different though. While hands and feet surrender to the rhythms, hearts and minds will be focused on one recently passed local percussionist Pablo Rotter, way before his time. Donations will be collected and given to Pablo's family.

RIP, Pablo.
