Lowdown: Humboldt's Soothing Monday Option

In an effort to let Humboldt recover from Saturday’s Homebrew Fest and Sunday’s Spam gorge, we’re keeping Monday pretty low-key this week.

But if you’re a psycho that still needs to get out for some reason at least the Arcata Playhouse offers soothing atmosphere in the form of Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers. The combination of the group’s restrained honky tonk paired with Muth’s story-songwriting led the Seattle Weekly to dub the band’s frontwoman “our own Emmylou.” You can decide how deserving she is of that title in the clip below.

Also, we're staring down the barrel of the month of May, so you might want to take a gander at the Lowdown Lookahead to plan your future fun in a more informed fashion. Just an idea. We won't put a cannon to your head or anything.
