Bloodkin guitarists Daniel Hutchins and Eric Carter sat in with fellow Athens, GA band Widespread Panic on Wednesday night. The guitarists emerged partway through Panic’s set at Louisville, KY’s Palace Theatre for two of their own tunes, “Wet Trombone Blues” and “Success Yourself.” Widespread Panic have not covered “Wet Trombone Blues” since January 24, 1994, and the band has not performed “Success Yourself” since April 2, 2000. Not surprisingly, the members of Bloodkin sat in with Panic during their previous takes on the songs.
Earlier in the day, Hutchins and Carter played a set of music with Widespread Panic’s John Bell and Todd Nance on Louisville’s 91.9 WFPK Studios. The quartet offered a series of Bloodkin songs that Panic covers, including “Wet Trombone Blues,” “Quarter Tank of Gasoline,” “Success Yourself” and “End of the Show.”
Widespread Panic’s tour continues at Like Oak, FL’s Wanee this evening.
