Thursday, May 8's Lowdown
We here at the Lowdown will promise you your liveliest lunch break all week if only you will hustle your buns up to Humboldt State Univerisity at noon today. SF-based string band Hot Buttered Rum will lend their pickin’ to the latest edition of HSU’s Arts on the Quad series. Maybe pick up a burrito, lay out on the Quad and tell the boss you’re takin’ a long one.
Sample some HBR in the clip below -- if you listen to KHUM you should recognize the tune -- and/or peruse the rest of your Lowdown farther down.
