FRIDAY LOWDOWN: Low Hums! Popovich Comedy Pet Theater! Absynth Quartet!

You made it. Again. Scroll your Lowdown below for your Friday rewards. We’ll note right here off the top that the second-to-last Friday Night Market of 2018 takes place in Old Town Eureka tonight. Remember how lame it was when we didn’t have those? Yeah, nice addition. Other Friday highlights (previewed in the clips above) include:

  • Seattle psychrockers the Low Hums lead a herd of bands at The Miniplex.
  • The Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, with its squad of trained rescue animals, brings the fuzz to the Arkley Center.
  • Local faves Absynth Quintet play the chords you haven’t yet mastered at The Jam.

Details on those shows and more below.
