Wednesday, April 2's Lowdown

Before you head out on your epic Fishbone/Hayfork road trip this Friday, perhaps consider a sweaty rock show warm up in the form of the Scott Pemberton Trio, who will fill hallowed HumBrews with dirty, dirty guitar freakouts Wednesday night. The guitarist and Portland native's sound has been described as "Ween meets Hendrix." Taste Pemberton's brand of excess in the extended, uh, "cover" of The Beatles' "Dear Prudence" below with guest vocals by fellow PDXers Shook Twins.

Also, it's never too early to be planning your weekend fun (and beyond). In that spirit we're directing you to the Lowdown Lookahead, a master list of all the Lowdown "red lined" events into the foreseeable future. Get on that and/or look for more Wednesday night distractions in your Lowdown below.
