The Boudin Barndance concluded its 30th year salute tonight, again with nothing out of the ordinary on the docket. We did kick off with a Gram Parsons number. The first Barndance in May of 1987 was a salute to GP. Anyway, hotter than a mofo in these parts today, so hopefully if you were listening you were someplace cool. Another of our mix-‘em-up nights. We did give away a pair of weekend passes to the Green River Festival ( happening July 14-16 in Greenfield, MA. We’ll do it again next week, too. New and recent releases making their Barndance debut tonight included albums from Rachel Baiman, Ryan Adams, Muddy Ruckus, The Steel Woods, Amilia Spicer, Mark Mulcahy, and the new Mark Heard tribute. Buttshaker of the week???? The Waco Brothers who hit Rhode Island on July 8 for Swamp Stomp 10 with “Pigsville.” Now let’s all grab a cold one and get to the goods….
