Check Out “Downey To Lubbock Bound” [VIDEO]
You may not remember it, but we actually had The Blasters headline an FMX event. Could it be that Dave Alvin actually remembers the Hub City?
Dave Alvin of The Blasters teams up with Jimmie Dale Gilmore of The Flatlanders for a smokey blues shuffle. I'm certain that some of you will not be into this, but let's say you were about 3-4 beers in at a club and this song went down...it's my guess you'd go crazy instantly. This what you'd call "Roadhouse" music.
What makes this intriguing is, until I was about 15, I lived in Norwalk, California which shares a border with Downey, so I'm pretty much Downey to Lubbock (via Brownfield), so close enough.
