Whew. Still recovering from Sunday night’s blowout with Drivin’ N’ Cryin’, the Baseball Project, 6 String Drag, Hank Sinatra and the Debonzo Brothers at the Lincoln Theatre here in Raleigh, NC. It was the 40th anniversary of our sister business Schoolkids Records, and the celebratory vibe was more than just operative—it was a friggin’ imprimatur. Go elsewhere on the site to check out a very cool 15-minute video of the final jam session/encore (on DnC’s “Straight to Hell,” which featured both DnC and the BB Project and others, including the legendary Warner Hodges from Jason & the Scorchers). And below, check out our photo gallery from the evening as rendered by ace shutterbug Dave Brainard, whose work you can consult at his official website. Boo-yaa….

UPDATE: DnC fan and friend o’ BLURT Vicki Fels sent us some of her own pics – check ’em out, below! They are, in order, Kevn Kinney during DnC’s set, Steve Wynn during the BBP set, and Jeffro of Hank Sinatra + Linda Pitmon + Wynn + Mike Mills; the final shot is of the venue’s ever-diligent bouncer who politely but firmly kept the resident BLURT fanboy from crashing the backstage area in search of free booze…

Kevn too
