A Special Shot of Allman Brothers in Arcata Tonight

Well, you trudged your way to another weekend, Humboldt. To commemorate, while they usually stick to beer, HumBrews would like to, just this once, pour you a shot.

Poor Man's Whiskey, our regional outlaw bluegrass jam squad, are on something of a unique tour right now. You may recall a previous Humboldt gig that was promoted as "Dark Side of the Moonshine," wherein the group slogged through old-timey arrangements of Pink Floyd songs. This time out they're rolling out a seemingly much more natural "Special Tribute to The Allman Brothers Band" romp. Ramblin' men and girls named Jessica are especially encouraged to attend.

Get a taste of what Whiskey is serving up in the clip below, or peruse your Friday Lowdown farther down.
