Lowdown: Where Monday's Bands Are

Actually, you ain't lookin' so shabby this week, Monday. In both Eureka and Arcata, you are offering options to the live music-craving, bar-goin' public. Bless you this once, oft-loathed first day of the work week. You do us solid.

So Humboldt, scroll your Monday Lowdown below for a surprising amount of out-of-town bands rolling through The Shanty, Siren's Song Tavern and Jambalaya. Ze honk and ze tonk will be quite thick at HumBrews where, straight out of the collapsed auto factory-landscape of Flint, Whitey Ford and the 78s, will be distributing country songs for the drinking downtrodden. Get a taste for the level of twang you can expect in the clip below for the ‘78s song “Hold Her When She Cries.”

Yay, Monday.
