Friday, Aug. 1's Lowdown

Friday night, the Humboldt Crabs will pinch-dismember their final opponents of the season when they take on the Novato Knicks in the first of three games taking place throughout their last weekend of the 2014 season. As we know, “knicks” is short for “knickers,” a term used for old-timey ladies' undergarments, so tonight should be a real treat!

Another reason this evening’s game will delight you is that LoCO’s classic rockin’ colleagues at KWPT The Point are the sponsors of tonight’s game. Your homework: Wear your favorite concert T-shirt and you could win a hat or something. \m/ 

If you want to keep on rockin’ late into the night, note that Humboldt’s Deadheads will be convening at HumBrews to celebrate what would have been Jerry Garcia’s 72nd birthday. One of the better local Dead cover bands The Miracle Show will keep the proceedings truckin’.

If I could chose a liquid other than water to fill a swimming pool with it would be Larrupin sauce. They wont fill a pool but they WILL fill a small ramekin for you when you go see Blue Lotus Jazz tonight!
