(VIDEO) Wednesday Lowdown: Get Wild with Big Wild in Arcata

You didn’t need to be productive Thursday anyway, right?

Humboldt’s bass-craving masses are likely all tingly in anticipation for the latest World Famous offering Wednesday night at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. Hailing from rural Massachusetts, young EDM DJ Jackson Stell has transported his love for beats to the west coast these days and now makes crowds bounce sweatily under the moniker Big Wild. Allow your retinas to be bombarded by his promotional sounds and images in the clip below and/or scroll your Lowdown listings below that for less rhythmic fare. —AG
