SATURDAY LOWDOWN: Dustbowl Revival! (PLUS: Much Rumbling!)

Critically acclaimed LA soul tour de force Dustbowl Revival will attempt to blow the rest of the roof off the Arkley Center Saturday night.

If that experience is not in your budget, though, scroll your Lowdown listings below and note the competing rumbly events, namely the Rebel Craft Rumble -- SCRAP Humboldt's crafty Iron Chef-ish throwdown happening again at the Arcata Playhouse -- and also Rumble in the Redwoods VI -- more traditional professional wrestling at Redwood Acres Fairground.
