Lowdown: A Danceable Revolution Invades HumBrews

Well this one's easy.

Returning to Humboldt Wednesday night is hip hop band-in-demand The Coup, a group that somehow successfully finds a way to be both unabashedly revolutionary lyrically while still putting on shows that emphasize ze rowdy fun. HumBrews will bounce tonight. Led by rapper/political activist/party starter Boots Riley, the group has been together in various incarnations since 1991.

Sample The Coup brand of joy in the video for their track "The Magic Clap" below and/or go your own way by scanning your Wednesday Lowdown below.
