In other news…the van hit 130,000 miles on the odometer last night as we drove away from Annapolis, high mileage club here we come! Check it out
So I’ve picked up about a dozen records on this tour so far, some in stores and some as gifts (thanks again to Chuck and Marg for the Beatles records!), and they’re all gonna be great to hear once I’m back home.
Here’s some of what I’ve picked up so far….
Mandrill – Mandrill Is – Ape Is High
Elton John – Madman Across the Water
The Beatles – Live at the Hollywood Bowl – Twist and Shout
I also got a hold of two Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass records, two Sly & the Family Stone, The Platters, The Miracles, and more… Looking forward to posting up some photos when I get home.

In the meantime, here is another animated short by Noah Adams entitled: “Being There”:
Ladies and gentlemen,
Tonight, we venture deep into the “Far North” to rattle the walls of Cazenovia, New York’s Nelson Odeon with our wild, heathen rhythms! Come shake yo thang with two full sets of yours truly, kicking off at a reasonable 8 pm. Be there! We’ll keep you warm.
In the meantime, enjoy a little crazy from the band that’s too friendly to lock up.
We ride to New York City today to participate in the APAP Showcase at the Rockwood Music Hall (stage 2) 9-9:30pm, but come at 7:00 if you wanna so our brother/sister bands tear it up. If your in NYC tonight come out and see the best touring bands the nation has to offer.
You can’t go wrong seeing ANY of these amazing bands, so come spend your Monday the right way at the APAP showcase tonight!
NPR is hosting a really cool contest right now called the Tiny Desk Concert Contest. Essentially, it’s a chance to win a spot to perform one of your songs on Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton’s Tiny Desk Concert show. We thought it would be cool to enter so we made this video:
Wish us luck! Fingers crossed…
The album is called “Important Things Humans Should Know”. Here is a picture of its cover:
Here is a exclusive stream of the opening track “Ezmerelda”, courtesy of our good friends over at 9Bullets.net:

Here is the tracklisting:
The album will be released worldwide on April 7th, 2015 via our website, iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify, Amazon, blah blah blah, and all those other hunky dory little download & stream sites. Additionally, we’ll be having a hometown release party on April 4th at DBA on Frenchmen if you want to come grab a physical copy early.
Can’t make it to New Orleans?
Don’t you worry, we’ll be doing a 4 month national tour to follow. We just posted 16 new dates on our sidebar, with many more pouring in everyday! Don’t see your city there yet? Don’t worry, we’re coming for ya!… Also, on or before the album’s release, our wonderful Kickstarter donors should be receiving their sweet gift packages in the mail. Again, so so so much thanks to everyone who made this project possible – we wouldn’t have been able to make it this dope without you.
So, did you get what you were looking for? Because if not, here’s a little icing to top it all off – a live rendition of “Ezmerelda” we just finished with our friends over at the Sugar Shack Sessions:
Did you party hardy last night? Did you laugh, cry, kiss an ugly stranger, fall off something, and/or make a bunch of impractical resolutions you’re sure to break within a week? If you’re like the rest of the world, you did. 2014 is gone now ladies and gents and it’s time to start tackling this beast they call 2015. So… what’s in store for Dirty Bourbon?
First off, we just posted 15 new dates to our sidebar. One important one to take note of is at 9pm on January 12th we’ll be playing Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan as part of the APAP global music industry conference.

Also, on January 7th (one week) we’ll be adding a whole bunch more dates and releasing some sweet juicy details about out next upcoming album (including art, track list, exact release date, tour schedule, and more) so make sure and stay posted for that one as well.
Additionally, Noah’s beard is half a year old now… it’s getting a little out of control as of late… and he’s still got nine and a half years left to go on that puppy. Sometimes, we wonder if Noah is loosing his mind. Speaking of which, he just finished a short film entitled: “Life, Briefly.” Check it out:
Well, that’s all for now. Stay in touch! Ad Astera per Aspera ~ DBRS
