Ladies and Gentlemen:
Let the grand, little adventure begin! Tonight is the first night of our last mini-tour of the year, and we’re excited to be hitting the road one last time. To wit:

So! Tonight we’ll be kicking things off at West Virginia’s own Shepherdstown Opera House at 8 pm, and tickets are only $10. Come get the holidays started the right way with some freshly prepared tunes from yours truly!
And now… A beautiful car
Mixing is all done! All that is left is the mastering. Once the mastering is done, the only thing left to do is pressing. Almost there! Now for something completely different…
here is a picture of Jimmy that a badass little kid made!
The first round of mixing is complete! After a day of working in the studio, Wes, Noah, and Bootsy are getting the album ready for mastering. We’re almost there! And now without further ado, the most beautiful nurse in St. Augustine, FL, Kat!
After all the instrumental beds and overdubs were complete, Wes, Noah, and Boots went back into the studio to mix the new tracks. Since watching three guys sitting in chairs for hours on end isn’t very exciting, here are some cool murals from the Mirliton Festival site in the Bywater!
We’ve finished up all of the instrumental beds for the new album! It was great getting back into the studio and working with Wes, one of the best recording engineers around New Orleans. We’re really looking forward to how this new one turns out. Stay tuned for more updates.
It is time for yet another chapter in the rich and ever-transforming history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. On December 31st, 2013 we will be releasing our 8th studio album - ”Accordion Anthology” – via digital download on our Bandcamp Site
. A special edition 180 gram vinyl will follow. Produced by Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid and recorded in New Orleans over a five year period at Piety St. Studios, The Music Shed and Loyola University, ”Accordion Anthology” features a new accordion-based arrangement of one song from each of DBRS’s past studio albums, intertwined with new, unheard, unreleased material.

To accompany its release we will be performing a special live show on NYE at the Maison on Frenchmen St in New Orleans – We’ll hit at 10pm and play until the New Year comes. Following a special ball dropping countdown ceremony, guests to follow include fellow New Orleanian gypsy stomp mafia band Debauche and annual host DJ Jubilee.

Fulfilling our promise of releasing 2 LP’s a year for our 1st four years as a band, this 8th studio album and the accompanying live show at the Maison marks yet another great achievement in the history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. We can’t wait to share it with you. Ad Astera per Apera.
