Sunday, Jan. 19's Lowdown

Are you kidding?

You know that friend that pines for city life 'cuz there's nothing to do in Humboldt? Call that jerk and tell 'em that the two of you are going to the Palm Lounge Sunday night. What's the occasion? Well last month the Seattle Weekly -- in the same breath it was praising Macklemore -- named surf-noir band La Luz as one of "Seattle's Most Outstanding Musical Artists of the Year!" Why should you care? Because that very band is playing in the ol' Eureka Inn bar ... for free.  

We are spoiled.

And while the don't have the big market alt weekly stamp of approval, local synthy garage rock band Companion Animal, who'll share the stage, also reeks of rad.  

So.

Take your negative friend out on ze town, have a great time, then at the end of the night smack 'em in the back of the head and remind them the glass is half full. 

Humboldt is awesome enough, people. More Sunday night options in your Lowdown below.
