Monday's Lowdown: DJ Shadow, Petunia and the Vipers and Beeeeeeer...

Those unafraid to convert their Mondays into fundays will note the understated presence of instrumental hip hop pioneer DJ Shadow in our fair county. The Bay Area native will drop beats on the Kate Buchanan Room as part of his "Renegades of Rhythm Tour" alongside roadmate Cut Chemist.

What else? Oh. We like this promo quote describing Petunia and the Vipers frontman: "Imagine that David Lynch and Nick Cave had a hillbilly baby. A hillbilly baby that yodeled. That’s Petunia." Have that description solidified for you in the clip below and then maybe roll by upstart venue The Sanctuary in Arcata for IRL experience.

Also Monday, and all week, beer.
