Giveaway: A Pre-Panic Throwdown With Bloodkin - Martyrs 4/11/13

Bloodkin leads the charge of Widespread Panic related shows that have sprung up around their weekend run with a Thursday show at the one of the north side's finest club's, Martyrs.

From the very beginnings of Widespread Panic to today and beyond, Bloodkin has been one of our greatest influences. Danny and Eric's music has a consistent blend of poetry, intestinal fortitude, and song-craftmanship that I envy. I can hope their example sinks in to my own approach to music. We can voyeuristically cover their songs during our sets but ultimately it's best to listen to Bloodkin and surrender to what is coming at you––pure intention in the form of music. Bloodkin's presence in, and their approach to, rock & roll or whatever you call it––is as much of what makes up the backbone of the Athens music story as any other band that has come through this town. That's what Danny and Eric mean to me.  - John Bell
