Rain, rain going away… tonight and early tomorrow that is… in Florence, SC where the Dogs will be playing at their annual Thanksgiving holiday show Wednesday night at Victors - NO COVER!
The question is, will the boys be playing inside or outside? The answer is that we don’t really know. But, through rain, sleet, or clear and cold weather these dogs will be playing tomorrow night! So come on out. Come ONE. Come ALL, get indulged in some pre-Turkey CARDIO in the process, and wash it down with some hot toddies.
WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE OUR FIRST ROUND OF SPECIAL GUESTSFOR OUR SHOWS IN DECEMBER AT THE CHARLESTON MUSIC HALL!

Tonight is the night the Blue Dogs pair up with Occasional Milkshake (Hank's side project with Mark Bryan from Hootie and the Blowfish) to shake things up in Columbia, SC.
The guys are very excited to return to The Vista and play at the NEW Music Farm. When the band first took off, the Music Farm on East Bay St. in Charleston was considered one of their stomping grounds. They are excited to continue the legacy of the Farm in the capitol city.
Today The State paper contained an article about the concert (taking place tonight at 8pm), in which the band shared memories of playing Columbia going back to the early 90's. You can follow the link below to read the article and to actually see their history revealed make sure to check out our ARCHIVES TAB!
After a postponed show in early September, the Music Farm opened in later September to positive reviews and a bunch of great shows, so without any further ado, the DOGS are ready for our night at the Farm North...in the Capital City, this Friday, November 7! We will have our full band, complete with drums and percussion, for a SIX piece experience. We are also joined by special guests The Occasional Milkshake, Hank's "side project" with Mark Bryan and Gary Greene. So we are pumped for a big Friday night in Columbia. Advance tickets are still available, so grab yours HERE! Doors 7pm, Milkshake 9-10:15pm, Dogs 10:30-12, jam set after midnight!
Free event in Brittlebank Park: 3-7pm!

Some people won’t believe it when you tell them white squirrels exist. We weren’t so sure ourselves until we saw our first one. A relative of the gray Eastern tree squirrel, white squirrels are thriving in Brevard, NC accounting for an all-time high of 40% of the Eastern tree squirrel population. This particular species of squirrel made its way to Brevard in 1949 as a result of a carnival wreck in central Florida and the town is gearing up for their 10th annual celebration of this unique wildlife population.
This nutty Memorial Day Weekend festival has a little bit for everyone. The 2014 festival kicks off Friday night with Love Canon followed by George Porter, Jr. and the Runnin’ Pardners in a free concert Throughout the weekend, bands like Scythian, the Jeff Sipe Trio, Shannon Whitworth, and many others are performing live and for FREE.
The family fun continues with a memorial parade organized by the American Legion on Saturday morning at 9 a.m., followed by a Presentation of the Wreath at the county courthouse War Memorial at 10 a.m.
Thrill-seekers will enjoy the 8th Annual Squirrel Box Derby in which creatively-designed derby karts race down Jailhouse Hill clocking in at 35mph or more. Races are open to kids 8-11 and 12-17, adults and businesses. Contestants compete for trophies awarded for the fastest critter and nuttiest design and the Golden Nut which is awarded to the local business with the best overall speed and design.
For those who are still skeptics, attendees will have a chance to meet Pisgah Pete, a rescued white squirrel, who will make his annual appearance at the festival. In addition, festival goers can learn more about how white squirrels live and what we can do to help rehabilitate wounded or rescued squirrels.
Additional events include the 6th Annual White Squirrel 5K/10K foot race, the White Squirrel Photo Contest, the White Squirrel Dance-off and street festival. This Memorial Day Weekend, there will be plenty of nutty fun for everyone in Brevard.
