Wednesday, July 2, 2014's Lowdown
You know, it’s not very often your Lowdown features shows that happen in Petrolia. In fact, in our year of existence this just might be the first one, by golly. Kinda slacking on the “Lost Coast” portion of "Lost Coast Outpost," we guess. Sowwy!
But tonight at the Mattole Valley Community Center gathered ears will be treated to the arrangements of Rabbit Rabbit, ostensibly comprised of the husband and wife duo Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi. Over the years, the multi-instrumentalist pair have played with numerous other artists including Tom Waits, Tracy Chapman, Pretty Lights and Mike Patton. In the last couple of years, they’ve embarked on a mission to release a song/video a month under a pay-what-you-can model, a gimmick unique enough to garner a writeup in the New York Times last year.
Check out one of their many videos below and/or check out one of the human clusters occurring closer to Humboldt’s larger population clusters in your Lowdown listings below.
