Monday, July 21's Lowdown

’Twas a big weekend in Humboldt, for sure. We’ll just admit it: LoCO is tired and will be staying tonight. Zzz. 

But if you, Jane/John Q. Musiclover still have a little fuel in your tank, please note that the Arcata Theatre Lounge will house a significant reggae gathering this fine evening. St. Croix roots reggaers Midnite have been touring the world with their socially conscious lyrics since 1989. 

On the other hand, if $35 is too much to shell out for your Monday night joy, your Lowdown will direct you to the Palm Lounge who tonight host “semi-fucked indie folk by semi-fucked indie folk” in the form of Campfire Cassettes. Sample their word smithery below in this clip for their song “My Girlfriend Bought a Fucking Ukelele.”

Just to see, I Googled "Midnite reggae homophobia" and this came up first. That's just dumb.
