Friday, Jan. 17's Lowdown

Your Lowdown won't fib: As far as Humboldt Friday nights go, this is a fairly low key one. Watching arty short films at the ATL could be fun. There's a hip hop CD release party at the Jam that might impress. Macktown's arts night is still chuggin' along. Sure, you've got options. 

Of course the evening's highest profile aural offering springs forth from the hallowed Arcata Playhouse where folk singer/songwriter and violinist Tracy Grammar will take advantage of one of Humboldt's most intimate rooms to share songs from her new album Joy My Love. Absorb an iota of the atmosphere she creates by taking in the YouTubage below and/or map out your evening by utilizing Friday's Lowdown further down.

Grateful Dead and Dancing? How could you have one without the other? At least the music will be good. HumBrews it is.
