Free CD for Like You’ve Got Something Better To Do Readers
So… Did you participate in last week’s Audience Participation? No? Me neither. They wanted an email address, a password and a screen name just to take their stupid survey. Fuck that! I don’t give my own mother that much information.
This week, I have a much better idea for audience participation, at least for readers in Humboldt County. This week I have two gigs that are free to attend, one in Redway and one in Arcata. Not only are these gigs free to attend, anyone who mentions this blog: Like You’ve Got Something Better To Do will receive a free CD. No work, no campaign, no tedious forms to fill out, just come out, enjoy some music, say “Hi” between sets and then mention “Like You’ve Got Something Better To Do” and you’ll get a free CD.
I’d like to see as many of you as possible at these two live events this week, and I hope you will introduce yourself and take home a free CD. Here are the details:
Local Didgeridoo Player Drones On
Local didgeridoo wiz John Hardin will bring his unique brand of trance-dance didgeridoo music to both sides of Humboldt County this week, with performances on Wednesday, October 9 at Persimmons Garden Gallery in Redway,
and on Friday, October 11 from 6-9pm in Arcata at Moonrise Herbs as part of Arts Arcata.
John blends ancient aboriginal didgeridoo tradition with techno-trance groove sensibilities to create a sound that unites the generations. That is, John’s music inspires three-year-olds to dance, hipsters dig the psychedelic rhythms, while elderly listeners enjoy the sonic massage.
John explains the appeal of his music this way: “I love this music. I don’t understand it, but this is the most original, organic and inspiring music I’ve been involved with in my 30+years as a musician. I feel like this is what I was born to do. Now that I have begun to share it with people, the response has been amazing. For as strange as this music sounds, I’m surprised at how many different kinds of people seem to enjoy it.”
John’s new album John Hardin Live Electric Didgeridoo was recorded live at The Hemp Connection in Garbervile. It is currently available there, as well as at The Works Records in Eureka, People’s Records in Arcata or through John’s blog, www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com John will also have copies of his CD for sale at both of these upcoming shows.
