Monday, Jan. 27's Lowdown

It's a low key Monday in HumCo, so we are shamelessly forgoing our usual Lowdown duties to join the rest of the county in fawning over Grammy star and local-girl-gone-awesome Sara Bareilles. She is great, people. Get used to it.

Elsewhere on LoCO you'll find "aww"-inspiring video of Bareilles' Grammy performance with fellow singing ivory tickler Carole King. (Did we mention Humboldt is very proud of you, Sara? Squee!) But we found one other moment from last night that speaks to the heights of fame to which our hometown hero has climbed. Below, watch a CBS red carpet interviewer revert to teenage fanboy status when tasked with interviewing the pop star.

"Aaand this is where I have to not look right at her because I'm in love with her," gushes the man with the microphone (he might be someone famous, but we don't recognize him).

By the end of their chat, dude recommends that Bareilles obtain a restraining order against him. Yikes? Watch the love fest below.

Godlin Gets Behind

Aber Miller and Drew Mohr @ The Sushi Spot. If you don't live in McKinleyville it's hard to explain the outright joy shared by all 'Villans when a -not Mexican food- restaurant opened up in town. Let's extend that joy by eating raw fish while listening to live music.
