Ferndale Asks, "Who Wants Pie?"

Do you like pie? You like pie.

Luckily for you the fine people of Ferndale had the ingenuity to plan a benefit on a Tuesday night -- when there's not much else going on, meaning we're more likely to notice it. Another thing the Lowdown likes: They dumbed down the event name so that we don't get confused. (drum roll) The monthly event at the Ferndale Rep is called Music, Movies and Pie. Here's how it works:

Got that? Proceeds benefit the Grace Foundation. Full details here.

One other Tuesday note: Indie girl pop duo the Upside Drown will bring light (where last night there was dark) to The Siren's Song Tavern. But before they do that, they'll stop by KHUM sometime between noon and 1 p.m. to be harassed by Mike Dronkers. Tune your knobs accordingly and/or watch Upside Drown's video for their song "Even Dead Bodies."
