The final Boudin Barndance of May was the usual busty one – new releases the first hour, C&W segment, Bob Dylan Birthday set salute, and various vittles during the last hour. Albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight came from Son Volt, The Watson Twins, Kassi Valazza, Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives, Raul Malo, The Pink Stones, and The Milk Carton Kids. Buttshaker of the week???? Sonny Burns with “A Rea Cool Cat.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
