Monday, July 28's Lowdown

Actually, on second thought, this is a pretty rich Humboldt summertime Monday night.

There's a robust indie rock hat trick populating Eureka's Siren's Song Tavern. Check out a clip above from headliner Ruby Pins, the side project of one-time Grass Window drummer/singer Lillian Maring. Silver Shadows and local faves The Monster Women fill out the free night of music.

A block or so away at The Works, Eureka-based band Elegant Humanoid are reportedly releasing a cassette tape (we will believe this when we see it) and sharing a bill with no less than four other bands. That's many bands!

And finally, if you find yourself up in Arcata, maybe saunter on over to upstart venue The Sanctuary for an intimate evening with American roots music ensemble Chatham County Line. Check out their song "Crop Comes In" below.

Or stay in. 'Cuz it's Monday, you animal.
