At the meet-and-greet with Kinky Friedman prior to his Southern Discomfort tour’s Feb. 16 show at Vermilionville, fans got to enjoy gumbo, drinks and face time with the Kinkster and the show’s opener, Kacey Jones. A brigade of Jones’ devoted fans, known as The Berry Queens, made an evening of it. Needless to say, a good time was only beginning to be had — it finished up when the double-bill concert did.
