Hey friends,
On Friday, September 27th, Winston-Salem's HanesBrand Theatre will present An Evening with Possum Jenkins--Acoustic and Electric. Advance tickets are on sale now for $10 and can be purchased HERE!!

We're so excited about this show that we're offering y'all a chance to WIN a very special V.I.P. package through our very own Carolinacana PHOTO CONTEST!! The package includes two free tickets, a post-show meet & greet with the band and a Possum merch package.

On top of al that, the winner and one guest will have the chance to accompnay us to Our State Magazine headquarters in Greensboro, where we'll be recording another acoustic performance for their new "Music In The Lobby" series. Click HERE to watch Chapel Hill's Mandolin Orange perform at Our State.

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.

So that's pretty much it for this edition. Let's see those photos!!

"Possum Jenkins has always made music for the love of the music, Brewer said. “We’ve never felt like making the leap to being a full-time, national band was best for us and our families. But we still love playing together and want to do it as often as we can. … We’re proud that our sound has always been really eclectic and that it reflects our love of soul, blues, country and rock ’n’ roll. We have lots of strong influences, but we’ve been able to create a sound that is really ours and not anybody else’s. When we look back at our body of work so far, there’s a lot more grinning than cringing.”"  Debbie Selinsky, The Winston-Salem Journal

"...their songs are delivered seamlessly and without much production. They are a band that has yet to reach a plateau."  Ashley Wilson, The Mountain Times

"The N.C. quintet hits the road locked and loaded with its recent recording Carolinacana. The title sums up the combo’s exuberant Southern rock, rural Americana and acoustic-guitar-fueled blues boogie. The band’s songs are whittled from music of the South, with a keen sense of interplay within the band, and a natural emphasis on songcraft."  Samir Shukla, Creative Loafing, Charlotte
