Wednesday, Feb. 19's Lowdown

Humboldt Wednesday night warriors committed to soaring over that hump just might find themselves drawn to HumBrews for the latest HumCo return of party-in-a-can Diego's Umbrella. Now we're not sure, but it feels like we saw a memo not that long ago that said we're not allowed to use the term "Gypsy" any more. Thus, your always PC Lowdown will describe the SF-based group as "Roma rock" … or if neither of those terms do anything for you, just absorb the sound and fury in the YouTube clip below.

"Star Knight" at the ATL.  A dragon steals a princess, but wait..... the dragon is a spaceship. Hell Yes.
