WEDNESDAY LOWDOWN: Darling Nicki On Stage and on the Radio

On the road promoting her new album To Rise You Gotta Fall, there are a couple ways to catch the now Grambler-less Nicki Bluhm in Humboldt on Wednesday: Your most up-close-and-personal option is to bask in her presence at HumBrews (details in your Lowdown listings below), but you can also hear her gab it up with DJ Cam on KHUM sometime around 2-ish.
