Friday, July 25, 2014's Lowdown
He’s back! Perhaps in response to one LoCO Facebook commenter who suggested he should “turn up the tempo to 200 and then we’ll talk," bandless local bedroom shredder Dylan Wood has posted his second video in as many days in the hopes that fellow musicians will take up arms with him in rawking musical brotherhood.
In the description for his latest video “Here’s Some Higher Tempo Shit,” Wood explains his motivation for today’s aural assault:
“Hella need a drummer. Seriously yo, hit me up on Facebook. Humboldt county Repin”
He means it, you guys. Please see yesterday’s Lowdown for info on how to reach Dylan. This band WILL happen.
As far as Friday night in Humboldt goes, you got your baseball, you got your bluegrass, you got your stand up comedy, you got your old, shiny cars, you got your dance party, you got your local theater, plus bands, bands and more bands. When deciding how to spend this very important night of the week, ask yourself: What would Dylan do?
