Lowdown: Shook Twin Side Project in Arcata Tonight

We want to begin today's Lowdown by imploring all Humboldt theater fans to check out your Lost Coast Outpost's new column From the Peanut Gallery by Claudia Guerrero which dropped online this morning with a phallic reference-peppered review of NCRT's latest production of Oedipus the King and Women in Congress (which continues tonight).

Many, many more options for those unopposed to page scrolling in your Friday Lowdown below.
