Friday, June 21, 2013's Lowdown

At 5:04 a.m. this Friday morning, the earth reached its maximum axial tilt meaning that, from this point on, each day for the next six months will contain less and less light. Enjoy the hell out of this day, kids. It's all downhill from here.

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. 

For more suggestions on how you can take advantage of the northern hemisphere's day maximum light, put on some sunglasses and scroll around your Lowdown below.
