Boudin Barndance playlists and album reviews now archived at &


A good ol’ fashioned Boudin Barndance this evening with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. New albums and/or singles making their debut tonight included music from James McMurtry, Riddy Arman, Tyler Keith (a bit belated on this one), Connie Smith, Yola, Kurt Vile (from upcoming Velvet Underground tribute) and Jesse Malin. Buttshaker of the week???? A blast from the past with Bodeco doing “Belle Negrita.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or three, and get to the goods….
