A belated Cinco de Mayo celebration on The Boudin Barndance on this beautiful Thursday evening in SE New England, in particular the last hour of the show which was divided between traditional border sounds and some mostly South of the border rockers. Previewed the Cowboy Junkies show at The Hi Hat in Providence on Wednesday night and gave away some tickets. A bunch of new and recent releases making their Barndance debuts this evening, too. They includes albums from Sid Selvidge, Rebecca Polonsky, Jennie Arnau, Crooked Still, The Sadies, Alejandro Escovedo (single only), Otis Taylor, and Barndance favorite Andre Williams. Buttshaker of the week???? We go South of the border for “El Mongol” from Los Locos del Ritmo. Now let’s all grab a cold one and get to the goods….
