  Possum Jenkins’ Carolinacana 2011

Latest News & Ramblings

Happy spring possum lovers,
If we could potentially divert your attention away from your NCAA bracket for two seconds, we’d like to let you knwo about our upcoming shows. That’s it…nice and easy. Put the bracket down. Keep reading…

This Saturday, March 29, Possum Jenkins will make a long awaited and highly anticipated return to South Carolina’s Low Country to join nine other bands for Spring Jam Music Fest 2!!! Taking place in Charleston’s Brittlebank Park, the event will kick off at noon and rock on until 9:30 p.m. Possum Jenkins will hit the festival’s Village Stage at 1:10 p.m sharp. Come join us for what is shaping up to be an awesome day in Chucktown.

On Saturday, April 12, Los Possums will be a little closer to home when we again head south to headline Lexington, NC’s High Rock Outfitters. HRO’s lethal combination of great sound, a friendly staff, stellar microbrews and wine, and an all around cozy vibe have quickly made it a favorite for both fans and band members alike. We’ll take the stage at 8:00 p.m.

And last but not least, we’ll be back in the Queen City on Friday, May 9, for an ALT. COUNTRY TRIPLE HEADER at the fabulous Visulite Theatre. Possum Jenkins will be sandwiched between a pair of Charlotte’s finest country-ish rock band–Pullman Strike and Amigo. This show is going to kick ass.

That’s about all the news that’s fit for consumption this week Possum lovers. We’ve still got plenty of snug-fitting black Possum t-shirts (American Apparel!), so give us a shout if you need/want one.

Davo “Dolly!! Dolly!!!! Dammit!! Dolly!!!!!!! Dolly!!!!!!!!!!” Willis
Brent “Two eggs, hash browns, pork tenderloin, coffee…” Buckner

PS. Huge thanks to all who came out to our most recent Garage show. Y’all rocked our faces off and we tried our best to return the favor.

Happy 2014 Possum Lovers,
Yeah, yeah, yeah…we know the new year is almost two months old, but we’ve been more or less off the radar since last year. Fear not, however, as we’re heading into our 10th year with a full head of steam and a stellar slate of shows in some of our favorite spots throughout NC and beyond.

This month, your favorite bunch of Possums turns the big 1-0. I can confidently speak for everyone when I say nobody in the band thought we’d be around for ten shows, much less ten years!! Fortunately, we’re all still madly in love and we still enjoy playing music together and don’t see that changing any time soon. So break out the cake, candles and ice cream and let’s celebrate!! If you can’t find your lighter for the candles, Nate or Jared probably stole it.

Thanks so much to everyone who has allowed us to permanently damage your hearing while getting our ya-yas out on stage for all this time. We love and appreciate you. Hopefully you already knew that.
