Watch the Boudin origin story circa-1988 from Eunice, LA:


Our first Boudin Barndance of June was a mix of new and blasts from the past along with our weekly C&W set with a Johnny Paycheck focus to go with our soul closer. New releases making the Barndance hit parade for the first time came from Steve Earle & The Dukes, American Aquarium (single), The Watson Twins (Single), Nikki Lane (single), Andrew Bird, Triptides (single), Ken Yates, Nicki Bluhm, and Thomas Dollbaum. Buttshaker of the week???? Deke Dickerson with “Pinball Boogie.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
