Monday, Aug. 4's Lowdown

Yes, you have dirt lodged under your various digit nails. Sure, rare and exotic species of algae are multiplying in your dreadlocks. Of course your lobsterfied skin makes it difficult to move. You are a true Reggae warrior. Jah bless.

But just because you’re barely human doesn’t mean the party has to end. Completely different sounds await you Monday night at The Palm Lounge in Eureka, pilgrim, where high-energy, driving Alabama bluegrass blitzkrieg The Pine Hill Haints will make feet tap  ’til they’re bloody stumps. (Get a taste of PHH in the clip below.) Local synthy  B-movie soundtrack The Monster Women fill out the night. (All-girl surf rock trio Bombón was originally scheduled but sadly had to cancel.)

Reggae, schmeggae. More Monday night distractions in your Lowdown listings below.

Tonight I'm going to see Shit Rag at The Ink Annex because it seems like the right thing to do. Doesn't something about it just ring through and through with "correct"?
