“The first record?

I’ll tell you the one that won’t get me laughed at. I got a copy of ‘Dookie’ by Green Day. I really got into them in the seventh grade.”

Dom Flemons and the other members of the Carolina Chocolate Drops will perform at MASS MoCA in North Adams at 8pm on Saturday in support of their new album, “Genuine Negro Jig.” The Duke and the King will open the show. Tix are $18 in advance; $22 at the door; students $10.
