Carolinacana Photo Contest Rules:
We've done some ocassional trivia contests, but this time, you're actually
going to have to do the tiniest amount of work to participate. Simply snap a photo
of your own custom version of THIS PHOTO--a rather hastily arranged version of the
Possum logo featuring the outline of the Tar Heel State with a big PJ inside (you
can also view it on our Facebook page
). Make it as funny/weird/colorful/whatever
as you want. The more creative, the better.
-One entry per household.
-No gross or lewd pictures (or generally anything you wouldn't be comfortable
sharing on the web).
-People related to members of PJ may not enter.
Simply email your contest entry to thepossumjenkinsband(at)yahoo(dot)com. We'll
pick a favorite from the entires and announce the results next week. Two runners-up
will receive a Possum t-shirt and CD of their choice.
Deadline for entries is Sunday, September 15, at midnight.
A little background about the HanesBrand Theatre show...
A bunch of years ago, Possum Jenkins found its first roots in informal, late-night
acoustic jams in front of a handful of friends. Shortly thereafter, we assembled
a drum set, cranked up our amps and have more or less spent our almost 10 years
together as very electric alt. country outfit, while typically featuring acoustic
tracks on our studio releases. While we've ocassionally been induced to perform
sans amps (except for Jared), you could count the number of acoustic shows played
by Possum on one hand.
Well, our very good friend Richard Emmett (formerly of The Garage) gave us a holler
and asked us if we'd be interested in doing a show at one of Winton's newest,
coolest rooms and, by the way, could we make half of it acoustic? We thought that
was a fine idea, so that's the plan. We'll start out with an acoustic first
set, followed by an electric second set. We might even throw in some special guests
for good measure.

You Get Your Liquor From?" acoustic during last fall's Greensboro house
show in Barry and Meredith Harrell's living room.
So that's pretty much it for this edition. Let's see those photos!!
