Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013's Lowdown

It's another overachieving Wednesday night in Humboldt County. If you missed STOMP at the Van Duzer Theatre last night, dagnabbit, they're just gonna go ahead and bang on more trash cans tonight. If you need some high-energy, "livetronica" -- a combination of live and electronic instrumentation -- you can drop some cash and head out to the Eureka Theatre for tonight's Big Gigantic show.

Or you could check out the band that will be filling Humboldt Brews with wonderfulness. To our knowledge, the minimum number of views that allow a YouTube clip to be referred to as "viral" has not been established. But even if Lake Street Dive's video for "I Want You Back" and it's almost one million views don't exactly make the viral cut, it will still infect you with its sweet, lilting harmonies and laid-back jazzy arrangement. 

Check that clip out below and also make sure to tune into KHUM during the 4 p.m. hour when the group will get intimate with Larry. The rest of Wednesday's options are farther down in today's Lowdown.
