Happy Holidays Possum lovers,
It is with great sadness and impending doom that we send this last email from Possum Headquarters before the earth comes to a horrific end this Friday. It’s been swell knowing all of you and we can’t thank you enough for your support over the years. Seriously, you’ve been wonderful.
So stop wrapping presents, blow off the rest of your holiday shopping and forget about those dirty dishes and piles of laundry while you’re at it. You need to live these last precious moments on earth to the fullest. More specifically, you need to come shake your ass at High Rock Outfitters in Lexington TONIGHT, December 20! The show starts at 9:30 p.m., and we’re the only band on the bill, so come on down, eat some barbeque and see what the buzz is about at High Rock Outfitters.
And, after having tearful goodbyes with family members and perhaps the odd co-worker, you need to head to The Garage in Winston-Salem on Friday, December 21, for Possum Jenkins’ End of Days Bash, or as Brewer is referring to it, the A-Possum-calypse.
Friday’s show will also feature an opening set by none other than Possum’s own Sanders Willis (aka Davo) to celebrate the release of his first solo disc, Plot Hound. Davo and friends will hit the stage at 9:00 p.m. sharp, so don’t lolligag. Watch this short video featuring songs from Plot Hound.
(DISCLAIMER: If, for some strange reason, The Garage is not engulfed in a large fireball or somehow hoovered off the face of the planet, we WILL NOT be offering refunds at the door.)
Because none of us can really be sure what’s going to happen tomorrow, Possum Jenkins decided to book a gig for New Year’s Eve at the one and only Boone Saloon. We’re calling it our New Year’s Eve Champagne Jam, and our very good friends The Worthless Son-In-Laws will be opening. It’s probably going to get rowdy. Especially if Rob Brown has anything to do with it.
So yeah, that’s about it for us. So long. Over and out.
