(VIDEO) Does Anyone in Humboldt Want to Start a Metal Band With Dylan?

To kick off today's Lowdown, we wanna know if anyone in Humboldt wants to start a metal band with Dylan? He just posted the above video to YouTube with the following description:

"Im looking for some decent metal artist. im in Humboldt county cali. Staying frosty and half baked. Hit me up if you're in Humboldt c.a. (530)7392751"

So let him know, OK?

OK, moving on. With regards to Humboldt's out-and-about options, we'll note that this weekend provides strong evidence of just how much Humboldt overachieves theatrically as there are no less than four productions currently available for your eyeball pleasure. Roll call!:
