Monday, Jan. 13's Lowdown

A quick overall scene note: Humboldt State's spring semester requires students to be present later this week. One positive that seems to manifest annually is that the post-Christmas cultural drought we experience begins to leave us. We shall be fundamp henceforth.

As far as Monday goes, the honk and ze tonk will be quite thick at HumBrews. Straight out of the collapsed auto factory-landscape of Flint, Michigan comes Whitey Ford and the 78s, singing country songs for the drinking downtrodden. Get a taste for the level of twang you can expect in the clip below for the '78s song "Hold Her When She Cries," and/or scan your other Monday night events in your Lowdown below.
