Friday, Nov. 15, 2013's Lowdown
Thank God it's the day that it is! Your Lowdown just confirmed that tickets are still available for the (at least) twice in a lifetime opportunity to see surf guitar innovator Dick Dale in the Scotia's old growth redwood cathedral, the Winema Theatre. Before you go, watch the clip below in which Dick Dale yaks about the time his song "Miserlou" almost didn't end up in Pulp Fiction.
Scotia too far away? Thankfully this is a packed Friday as evidenced by your Lowdown listings farther down. Scroll around. You'll find something in your neck of the forest.
