Diego's Umbrella Would Like To Improve Your Hump Day

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.
