BLOODKIN 25th anniversary celebration + ONE LONG HUSTLE Box Set release party
$10 advance ticket/$12 day of show
9pm doors/10pm show
2 full sets of Bloodkin
Bloodkin’s 25-year history has been a roller coaster of the good, the bad, and the ugly. There have been personal demons to tame, real tragedy to endure, and a very uphill battle to keep their creative relationship intact. But through it all, their music remains a genuine article of Southern gothic narrative wrapped in the cloak of powerful and raw guitar-driven rock & roll music. With 9 [soon to be 14, upon the release of the five discs in ONE LONG HUSTLE] albums' worth of material to their credit Bloodkin is an undeniably important part of the contemporary Southern musical landscape.
DescriptionDaniel Hutchens and Eric Carter met each other when they were eight years old in Ripley, West Virginia. They solidified their early friendship based on a mutual love of baseball, comic books, and rock n roll music. After high school, they started getting a little more serious about their blossoming songwriting partnership. Their road wound through Huntington, WV, and eventually on to Athens, GA, which they soon came to call home. They continued to concentrate on their songwriting, and by the early ‘90s they had a catalogue of over 300 compositions. By this time Hutchens and Carter had given their musical collaboration a "band name": Bloodkin.
