Friday, Feb. 28's Lowdown

It's Friday, Humboldt. You made it. 

There's plenty a good times to be had for the adventurous. A special Lowdown shout out goes to the crew at Blondies -- Arcata's best corner market/concert venue/beer bestower -- who are celebrating their Cinco De Anos Celebration this evening with a colorful shindig featuring beer, games, beer, music by local "crunchcore" band Ginger Grae and probably beer. 

Elsewhere, if you need to be at the biggest event going on any given evening, set Friday coordinates for Blue Lake Casino where good vibe and riddim purveyor J Boog will be throwin' down positivity over world riddims. Sample his brand of boom in the clip for "Let's Do It Again," below and/or peruse the rest of your Friday Lowdown below.
