Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013's Lowdown

As is often the midweek case, Arcata owns the out and about action with, count 'em, three special shows highlighting Tuesday night:

  • ¡UNO!: HumBrews plays host to veteran New York ska revivalists The Slackers who, despite their name, clearly have worked pretty hard at keeping the party going to make it to sustain two decades touring together.
  • ¡DOS!: Arcata's funk sanctuary Jambalaya will be ministered to by accomplished keyboardist Robert Walter -- the former Greyboy Allstars member rolls into town with his current band 20th Congress. Local funk army Motherlode opens the service. (Programming note: Walter will also stop by KHUM DJ Larry Trask's show at 2 p.m.)
  • ¡TRES!: There's some reggae legend at the Van Duzer or something.

TGIT, y'all.
