Get Ready For HARD Day Of The Dead With An Exlcusive Playlist From LA’s John Bryars

Hard Day Of The Dead

Halloween is in full effect, and that means one thing, Halloween events. With Wynwood Fear Factory and Escape: Psycho Circus already behind us, there are only a few festive events waiting to take place. One of these events, is HARD Day Of The Dead.

While not exactly a Halloween event, ‘Día de Los Muertos‘ is just about as close as it gets, it is in November after all. HARD DOTD is set to take place this upcoming weekend, in Downtown Los Angeles. In preparation of HARD DOTD, we’ve got a special surprise for you.

Today we bring you a curated playlist from HARD DOTD artist, John Bryars. He sent us over fourteen selected tracks ahead of his DOTD set that are indicative of his upcoming performance. If you’ve yet to see Bryars live, you can catch him live at the ‘Duro Stage‘ this upcoming weekend. Below, are his picks, along with a brief comment in regards to his selections.
