Sorry, You Have to Choose Between Anaïs Mitchell and Cecile McLorin Salvant #FirstWorldProbz

Tuesday is Chooseday, it seems.

Hey, while your Lowdown does provide you with Humboldt's music schedules, we don't yet make the schedules. Which is too bad, because we never would have pitted masterclass singer/songwriter Anaïs Mitchell against Thelonious Monk vocal competition winner Cécile McLoren Salvant. Are you kidding? On a Tuesday? Who plans these things?

Well, you're just gonna have to choose, HumCo. Check out Mitchell in the clip above. You dig? Then you're headed to the Arcata Playhouse. But also check out Salvant in the vid below? You moved? Then you'll have to shell out a few more bucks for a seat at the Van Duzer Theatre

Again, sorry 'bout this.
