Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013's Lowdown

Thursday night at the Van Duzer Theatre, Humboldt has the opportunity to experience high culture while also being reminded that gyms exist. Dammit. Only watch the YouTube clip of Alonzo King's LINES Ballet crew below if you a) would love to see human bodies moving in extremely grace ways and/or b) want to feel like a slob.

You've been warned.
