But while light may be dying a slow death here in HumCo, something else is being born: music. Tonight at HumBrews, local alt folk/country singer/songwriter Caitlin Jemma will push her album Lick Them Wounds out of the nest and into your ears -- sample a track, "Rivers and Streams," below. If therm sounds seduce you out to the show tonight, be sure to wish Caitlin luck. She'll be hitting the road for a month-long, multi-state tour here pretty quick.
