Tonight – at One Eyed Jack’s in the French Quarter – we partake in the most poppinest ever. Grand, spectacular, wild, and erotic – The circus is fully fired up now, and this time it’s a 4 ring: Dirty Bourbon River Show, New Grass Country Club, Booty Trove & A-Free-Ka.
It’s going down like this:
9pm Doors open
10pm 12 piece beat hooligans A-Free-Ka starts the show
11pm New Grass Country Club begins. Fresh from the release of their new debut LP ‘Join the Club’ they’ll be bringing the old and a whole lotta new too.
Midnight Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. Heading off on their summer tour with New Grass the day after, DBRS is excited to present a jam-packed show with a bunch of new songs, antics, players, burlesque dancers, and more.
And so, as you can probably see, this show is utterly ridiculous. Over the course of the night you’ll see 4 bands and at least 40 different instruments onstage. You’ll hear things you’ve never imagined. You might even shit your pants its so good.
Yes, it’s that good.
Tickets are $10 in advance, but only $5 presale. Yup. That’s right. 4 bands for only 5 bucks. Find a band member for tickets or click the link below to order online:

The other day an old friend of mine reminded me of another old friend of mine – Leon Redbone. I love the way the brain reacts to the rediscovery of old, cherished music. Hands down one of the best, personable, and interesting interpreters of American folk music, Leon Redbone showed from Cyprus in the ’70′s, and has since built a steady cult following for his comedic, skillful mastery of guitar and voice.
Now about as old as my pappy, Leon Redbone is still slingin’ strong – raspy, full of kick – yessir, hmm, have a bourbon, have a chuckle, and check out his wonderful version of “Shine On, Harvest Moon”:
