Wednesday, July 10, 2013's Lowdown

For your midweek Lowdowns, we like to give you a quick future heads up. So note that this coming Humboldt weekend includes returning annual events aplenty -- to name a few Annie and Mary Day in Blue Lake, Swauger Station Day in Loleta and the Orick Rodeo in ... well, yeah.

As far as tonight goes, if you follow the Lost Coast Outpost then you're familiar with Chuck Johnson's Humboldt Live Sessions music videos. The last edition featured Portland indie folk quintet The Breaking Yard filling Arcata's Missing Link Records with aural beauty. Well, Wednesday those same sounds will infest Eureka's Siren's Song Tavern

If you did miss the last HLS (first off, shame on you) we'll go ahead and slap it up below. If that clip doesn't seduce, you've got other Wednesday options farther down.
