Non-Genetic Shook Twin Returns to Humboldt

It's all Hallows' Eve eve, Humboldt!

Now if you'd like to be bowled over by beauty the night before you're assaulted by horror, the Lowdown recommends a trip to the Siren's Song Tavern. Non-genetic member of the Shook Twins Anna Tival will present her essence as alter ego Anna and the Underbelly. Humboldt music fans who attended the Shook Twins show at HumBrews back in June will surely back up LoCO up that the singer/songwriter has that "it" goin' for her (a small percentage of said "it" can be experienced in YouTube form below).

Elsewhere Wednesday, giant monkeys, speedy turtle and sexy zombies. Peruse your Lowdown below and ensure your splendid evening.
