Thursday's Lowdown: Honestly, When's the Last Time You Went to The Lil' Red Lion?

Sure, it’s gonna be a culturally packed night in at Dell'Arte in Blue Lake, what with the back-to-back Korbel V/Taken Away one/two punch continuing through Friday. But if you hold LoCO’s feet to the fire and force us to choose only one traveling bizarro one-man band this Thursday evening, you know, we’re gonna have to steer you to the under-appreciated Lil’ Red Lion in Eureka. There, you’ll simultaneously scratch your head and tap your foot to the focused weirdness of Bay Area “surrealistic rock ’n’ roll”er Andrew Goldfarb AKA The Slow Poisoner

Check out the surprisingly well-produced clip for Goldfarb’s song “Hot Rod Worm” below and/or find another human cluster that best suits your tastes in your Lowdown listings below.
