Happy summer Possum fans!
Here at Possum Headquarters, we’re grabbing something cold to drink and yanking the chain on the ceiling fan to keep things nice and cool. We’re also cranking up the A/C in the van because, after a brief pause for the cause, we’re hitting the road!!
This Saturday, June 23, Possum Jenkins will cruise down I-85 bound for the Queen City, where we’ll return to the one and only Puckett’s Farm Equipment. Sponsored once again by our friend Chris at Red Dirt Promotions, Possum will hit the stage around 10:30 p.m. Opening band Cold Bait Live Beer will hit the stage at 9:00 p.m.
Next weekend, Possum Jenkins will deliver a High Country double header with back-to-back nights in Boone. On Friday, July 6, Los Possums will join our very good friends The Worthless Son-In-Laws for a lovely evening of free music at The Jones House in downtown Boone. Music starts at 5:00 p.m.
Following the Jones House show, the Son-In-Laws and most of the Possums will head to Boone Saloon for Dave Brewer’s 5th Annual Big Badass Birthday Benefit Bonanza. This show typically features lots of special guests, so come help us raise money for local High Country Charities while we get silly on stage.
On Saturday, July 7, Possum Jenkins will head back to the friendly confines of Boone Saloon to join forces with monster NYC-based band Izzy & The Catastrophics. Stitching together rock n’ roll, swing, surf, honky tonk and bebop, this band has shared the stage with everyone from the Reverend Horton Heat to Snoop Dogg. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!!
On Saturday, July 14, Possum Jenkins will be back on stage in the Twin Cities as we return to Ziggy’s. Stay tuned for more details…
