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. Check this one out if your in the big apple that night – a lot of good bands courtesy of our wonderful agent Prater Day.
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

Well, then, you should probably answer this ad:
Today is the final day folks. Less than 18 hrs to go on our Kickstarter campaign. Now – more than any other time – is the time for you to step up and become a part of this awesome project! We’ve poured so much love into writing, drafting and demoing these songs, selecting the perfect producer and professional studio, putting all our cards on the line for this new album – join us! Let’s do it together! Whether it’s $500 or just $5, do what you can, and together let’s make the dopest album ever – let’s break DBRS into the mainstream – and without the help of nefarious record companies and industry hacks telling us what to do. Let’s do it ourselves.

The Dirty Bourbon River Show
P.S. Headlining night one of the Big What? Festival in Mebance, NC tonight! Midnight! Hope to see you there!
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re looking for that special someone. We want to record this next album to tape and release a vinyl version of it as well. But to do that we need to get this Kickstarter to $12,000. We’re currently at $10,360 with less than 36 hours to go. That means we have only a day and a half to raise $1,640, or we won’t be able to do tape. We simply won’t be able to afford it. We’re already facing a $20,000 budget, all things considered. But, if we can get up to $12,000, then we’ll be able to give this next album that warm analog justice it deserves. You like warm analog justice, right?
Have you considered our $500 donation package? For a mere five Benjamins you can get backstage access to a DBRS concert (+meet & greet & photo session w/ band), an autographed copy of the new album, a DBRS t-shirt, 5 DBRS stickers, and an autographed set-list. That’s a pretty good deal, right?
Oh, and as a last minute bonus, if you pledge that package today, tomorrow we’ll mail you a copy of our 8th studio album Accordion Anthology on 180gram vinyl with a hand written letter (both the vinyl & the letter hand-signed as well) & an email with a download of a demo version of one of the new new songs from our soon-to-be-recorded 9th studio album Important Things Humans Should Know.
Now that’s a pretty sweet deal. 2/3 of these $500 reward packages (and all 3 of the $1,000 packages) have been claimed, so there’s only 1 left…
Don’t have $500? Neither do we… Got $5? Make a pledge. And check our Kickstarter history – we’ve pledged to many music projects ourselves in the past. And so, we beckon to you now:
O brother, O sister, where y’at?

We dit it!!!! We’ve hit our $10,000 goal with 64 hours to go! But we’re not done yet ladies and gentlemen! Our budget has become clearer now that we’ve signed on a producer (Craig Schumacher) and scheduled professional studio time (Living Room Studio, New Orleans, LA) and all things considered, this project is going to cost us about $20,000 start to finish. We’re fully prepared to put in whatever we have to ourselves (we don’t have much) but we’d like to see if we could raise just a little more here on Kickstarter in these final few hours…
And so, if we can hit $12,000 here on Kickstarter before early Friday morning, then we’ll pledge to you to record this album on tape and do a vinyl release of it as well. Meeting with Craig and reviewing the equipment at The Living Room, he’s really excited to do some bussing to tape and treat it like a record, but tape & vinyl costs mucho money, and we just can’t do it in our current state…
But – if we can hit $12,000 here – then we can – and we will! So, it’s up to you folks… wanna see a vinyl version of this new album? Then let’s push just a little further… only $2,000 more to go – let’s do it!!!!
Oh, and we’ve reduced the $5,000 package to just 2 grand. For 2 grand you could have the Dirty Bourbon River Show perform in your house. Or your bar. Or your son’s bar mitzvah. Think about it.
Check out the updated project here:
And again, thank y’all so so so much. So excited to make this new album!!!
We’re getting down to serious crunch time here folks… We have less than 76 hours to raise $2,410 dollars for our Kickstarter Campaign, and if we don’t, according to Kickstarter Guidelines, we won’t get any of the money! We’re so close (3/4’s of the way there) but yet so far, and so we need your help now more than ever…
Want to take your commitment to the music of DBRS to the next level? If so, you should explore our $500 donation option – which comes with all sorts of cool rewards – Backstage access to a Dirty Bourbon concert, lots of hand signed swagger, songs before the album even drops, all sorts of amazing stuff. There are only three of these rewards available, and 1 has already been taken.
If you are in such a position, please consider this donation amount. If we can get 2 $500 donors before the end of the night, we’ll be at 85%! As the night ends and we get dangerously close, this would be so so cool…
Watching that ticker tick… Let’s do this good people!!!! Here is the link:
We need your help! Yes, you!!! We have only 4 days left to go on our Kickstarter campaign to raise $2,715, or we won’t get any of the money! If you haven’t yet, please check out our project HERE and come be a part of something awesome! Now is the time! Crunch time baby! Let’s make it happen!
PS Next three backers of $50 or more will get a free vinyl shipped to them tomorrow. Do it!
Noah would like to tell you all something about his guitar:
“This is my guitar. I have played her on the road for years. She earns my bread, keeps me clothed, keeps me fed, makes people dance, makes people happy. She is my baby.
“I am fortunate enough to spend my life playing this guitar with an amazing band some of you may have heard of – the Dirty Bourbon River Show. My band and I are currently trying to raise funds to record our next album, and we are way way behind… we have less than 10 days to raise $6,000, or we won’t meet our 10k goal, and wont get any of our funding….
“And so, to the next person out there that donates $1,000 to our project and brings us up to 50% funded, I will give you my guitar. Straight up. I’ll even clean her up, put some more dope-ass parts in, set her up, and string/tune her to your preferred action / gauge / etc and then you can have my baby. I’ve played her full time for over 3 years. And now, I want her to go to a good home.
“Will you give her a new home?”
Help Noah find a new home for his baby. More information here: http://goo.gl/IAoe8V
Stay tuned for some special details tomorrow…
