Monday, Jan. 6, 2014’s Chowdown

Just by sheer numbers, the most Humboldt eyeballs will undoubtedly be drawn to tonight’s BCS Championship game — that’s college football, if you’re wondering — between Auburn and Florida State. More bars than not will be pumping those sporty images at their patrons, but we’ll note here in Lowdown land that watching foosball on the giant screen at Arcata Theatre Lounge is actually highly enjoyable.

On the other hand, if sports make you yawn, let your Lowdown make an alternative suggestion: Humboldt County’s most ambitious songwriter John Ludington (pictured) will act as Monday night’s savior by spilling his genius into the ears assembled at Siren’s Song Tavern. He’ll be joined by New York alt/folk posse Hieronymous Bogs
