Please Bring Agitated Mountain Lions to HumBrews Tonight

If good television matters to you and you also pay for cable/know how to manipulate the internet, you have likely stumbled upon the exploits of US Marshal Raylan Givens as chronicled in the FX dramatic series Justified. And if you do in fact fall in that category, then your ears have without a doubt absorbed the hybrid rap/bluegrass sounds of the group Gangstagrass, whose song "Long Hard Times to Come" serves as the show's theme (see above).

That sounds familiar, yes? Right. We mention this in Lowdown land, of course, because the Emmy-nominated band will roll into Humboldt Brews Monday night to test your endurance for their experimental genre.

But their basic cable fame is only the tip of the iceberg, folks. As though marrying the musical stylings of Bed-Stuy and Appalachia weren't impressive enough, the group has also perfected another unique skill they don't shy from boasting about. Please respect the following passage that kicks off their promo material:

"There are only three bands that can tame a mountain lion just by playing. Gangstagrass is one of them. Gangstagrass is also the other two of them."
-Gangstagrass

What an opportunity, Humboldt! Please bring all your agitated pet mountain lions to HumBrews tonight. Gangstagrass will make 'em civil.
