But while the band looks to be quite good, we are choosing to feature the show mostly because we here at LoCO wish more local venues would put as much love into promoting their shows. For about a month now, we’ve noticed promotional videos like the one below popping up in which longtime Humboldt musician and new BRC entertainment booker Halsey Ray attempts to earnestly YouTube-sell the county on that week’s casino goings-on. Uh, you should watch that. The production value may be low, but who cares? We appreciate when people, you know, go for it.
