Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013's Lowdown

Well, it's another one of those packed Humboldt weekends. What with the Humboldt Pride Festival, Ocean Night, the Storytelling Festival by the Sea and a load of others (scan below), you have no excuse for being bored today, citizen.

Oh! Also, it's the last Humboldt Roller Derby bout of the season! If you don't get out to Redwood Acres tonight to see our local flat track warriors in action, you're going to have to wait another six months to see them again. Allow yourself to be pumped up by the accompanying YouTube clip above and plan accordingly.
