You can tell by the photo that Humboldt County will love Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys
. She's adorable, like the girl you had a crush on in grade school. The guys are attractive and sincere-looking in that way that only young people wearing natural fibers can be.
The beards probably do not keep them from being carded when they're trying to buy a post-gig beer.
Also, they're playing at Hum Brews, a venue with a well-deserved reputation for booking only excellent acts. Sound-wise, as expected, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys serve up traditional American music that brings forth such adjectives as "distinct, tight, expert and creative." Lindsay Lou Rilko's tunes include true-life tales of bank-robbing aunties and moonshinin' grandpas, plus references to dancing in the kitchen, daffodils and dreams.
Tickets are $10 at the door, which opens around 9 p.m. Show's 21-and-over.
