Tonight, we return to Lexington, Kentucky’s own Al’s Bar to rock the early part of your week with the singular and talented Ford Theatre Reunion! The doors open up at 9, and the show kicks off around 9:30. Come get weird with ones who do it best!
We’re excited to be starting this little October tour of ours at the Harvest Music Festival in Ozark, Arkansas. The weather is perfect and the lineup is full of talented acts from all over. We’ll be hitting the Woodchuck Cider Backwoods Stage at 5 today, so make sure you got your dancing shoes on before sundown.
Halloween in New Orleans is always a big deal. Here we have so many cultures from catholic to voodoo that we have some of the freakiest fun possible on the planet.
Sometimes we have too much fun.
This year we are honored to be playing Halloween night at Maison on Frenchmen St. in the French Quarter. We will be hitting the stage at 12:30am. So come all costumed up for a bourbon fueled night of masqueraded mischief. Now we just have to find costumes.
We will also be playing Voodoo Fest on the Ritual Stage, Nov. 2nd at 12:15pm to close out our weekend. That’s right. That’s the same day and stage as the Foo Fighters. So if you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, click on the image below and make sure you get to join us for our favorite weekend every single year. We will be wandering around the City Park grounds trying to soak up as much of the musical glory as possible, and we recommend you do too.

Hello all! We are currently holed up in a studio cranking out a new album for your listening pleasure. Here are some pictures for a rare sneak peak of how we make the magic happen.
The new album is coming along splendidly and we can’t wait for it to be finished so it can dance around in your ear drums. However, we didn’t forget that we still have a 10 year beard growing in the works. so without further ado, we present to you month 3 of the 10 year beard.
It’s only month 3 but it is coming along very nicely.
Ah… and so ends yet another wonderful tour across our beautiful country! It just keeps on getting better and better, with ever more to see and experience, but fear not! The end of one adventure is only the beginning of another! There are exciting things on the horizon for yours truly, including the upcoming studio sessions for Important Things Humans Should Know (which is bound to be rife with historic DBRS footage), New Orleans’ own Voodoo Experience, and a Halloween party to get you into all sorts of trouble!!!… but I digress.
Tonight, we continue our little tour up the coast as we hit our northernmost point on this run – Fairhope, Pennsylvania – at the beautiful Bucks County Playhouse! The show kicks off at 8 pm sharp for an evening with yours truly. Come see us for one of our last shows before we hit the studio!
It’s good to be back in good ol’ Winchester, VA, and boy are we excited to wrap up this Summer Tour with our Vaudeville Revue at the always lively Bright Box. Tonight’s entertainment is sure to be an unforgettable experience with comedy, burlesque, and hip-shaking good music!
That’s right, and it’s all happening tonight at the Bright Box. There are only a few tickets left so move quick. Showtime is 8 pm!
Just where did the Dashboard Hula Girl come from? When did it tip and become the retro icon that it is today? We have one ourselves – her name is Rita – and we’ve always wondered, and so we decided to do a little research…
We start to see the Hula Girl herself entering into American iconoclasm as early as the 1900’s as a symbol of tourism in Hawaii. Then in the 1920’s and 30s the earliest dolls begin to surface, usually made of bisque, or redware – a claylike material. In the 1950’s we start to see what is closest to the modern version – plastic – fauxgrass skirt, often holding a ukulele or doing the hulu hand thing. The large amount of American soldiers in and out of Hawaii during WWII helped spread her popularity stateside. Then surfer kids and beach bums in Cali brought her into national light, and thus the Dashboard Hulu Girl became the American pop star that she is today.
And there you have it folks. Show tonight in Frostburg, MD at Dante’s. Downbeat at 10pm. Don’t charge any porn to the room. Free tibet. Ad Astra per Apsera.
