Wednesday, March 26's Lowdown

We're looking down the barrel of a busy Humboldt weekend, y'all. Be sure to scope out the Lowdown Lookahead to beat the rest of the county to tickets that might need securin'. 

As far as Wednesday goes, a quick glance at your Lowdown below reveals the usual suspects -- your bad sci-fi flicks, your Whomp Whomp and Wild Wednesdays, your turtle sports. If any gathering stands out from the pack it has to be Eugene-based singer/songwriter/girl-with-a-guitar Caroline Bauer who will haunt The Siren's Song Tavern with her big, earnest voice and songs esta noche. Take a listen/peek at the clip for her song "Last Train Home" below.

-Andrew Goff
