Friday, Aug. 15's Lowdown

It’s going to be a pretty packed weekend in Humboldt — check out Saturday’s Lowdown which features no shortage of “red-lined” events.

But if saving your strength just sounds stupid to you, let’s see … what can you exhaust yourself with this Friday night? Uh … oh! Death polka? That sounds endearing, yeah? ‘Cuz tonight at Jambalaya features a triple bill headlined by accordion-toting, one-man band Ando Ehlers. You can totally drink to this! 

Get a sample of Ehlers in the clip below for his song “Sacred Death” and or peruse the rest of your LoCO Lowdown below.
