Pick a day


Wednesday, May 8, 2013's Lowdown

For a Wednesday drenched in cool and imported beerses your destination is Old Town's Siren Song Tavern where local rock/R&B revivalists The Lost Luvs will put their spin on the songs of yesteryear. (See them storm Northtown Books for a performance of Bo Diddley's “You Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover” as part of the Humboldt Live Sessions below.) 

The Luvs will be joined on-corner of the room by Acorn Bcorn, Tucson-based sisters who describe their sound thusly:

Acorn Bcorn = sister x 2 + guitar + bass + singing + kick drum x 2 + snare x 2 + tambourine x 3.

Sorry to make you do math on a Wednesday. Your other hump day options can be perused farther down in today's Lowdown.
