The other night in Grand Junction we met a couple of street artists who were working on the side of the music club, Sabrosa. These guys were so good we had to share it with y’all!
So this will be the start of a new segment we’re calling…
Tonight we’re playing in Golden, CO at the Buffalo Rose Bar & Grill!! Doors open at 9 PM!!
See y’all there!
Yes folks it has been done. Thirty-five years and 813 pieces later, Mark Temperato, who goes by the stage name RevM, has built the world’s largest drum kit!
Some of the parts are as far as seven or eight feet away from each other, but he’s able to hit each piece from his throne, which is impossible to see from the front.
…I can’t imagine how much money he’s spent….
I can keep track of how much money our Kickstart has raised…and as of now we are still behind schedule…we have 5 days to go folks, and we really need your help! We’ve got a producer and a studio all set…please continue your support and help us make this next album a reality!!
CLICK HERE TO DONATE!!
Y’all hear about this one yet? A new top secret Wu-Tang album has surfaced… And get this… They will only be selling one copy of it to the highest bidder…
Apparently the RZA has already been offered 5 mil for it. You can already peep a 51 second sample of the album (which oddly enough, features Cher) on Forbes.com. It was produced over a 6 year period by Cilvaringz under “the tutelage of the RZA”, and is currently being held in a vault in the Grand Mansour in Marrakesh.
Not making this up.
DBRS at CSPS in Cedar Rapids, IA tonight at 7pm.
Years ago, when we first started to play North Carolina, I met propane flame effects artist, Beyond Joy. He wanted to set my sousaphone on fire. I was intrigued by the proposition so we began talking about design. It would have to be a simple to operate, mobile, and above all, safe.
The system would have two major parts, a pilot light and a propane poofer. The pilot light stays lit the entire time the system is on, and provides the initial flame for a second, larger blast of propane. Once Beyond had a basic design, all we needed was a few days to build and test.
Earlier this week, the stars aligned and we found some free time to work. The first day, Beyond fabricated the pilot light using copper tubing and brass fittings.
On the second day, Beyond fabricated the poofer.
With both pieces together, it was time for a test.
I say it was a rousing success. I cannot thank Beyond Joy enough. This fire tuba system is as beautiful as it is functional.
Fall’s rolling round the corner yet again, and so we thought it best to greet it with a brand new Dirty Bourbon website design. Check it out and let us know what you think about the new switch:
Aside from its super-savvy nuevo look and glistening graphics, a few of the new design features include:
1) a beefed up gig calender w/ showtimes, ticket prices, set descriptions, & venue site links
2) completely new Press & Performance Info sections with an EPK, technical, and hospitality riders
3) newly designed Music, About Us, & Booking sections
4) new widget and social media integration
5) a picture of Bootsy, yelling at the camera.
Can you spot 1) through 5) ? Let us know in the comments section below…
…Soon to come: Lyrics section for entire discography + floating musica player
Today is our first show in the great state of Maryland! We make our debut at Cafe Nola in Frederick, MD. Show starts at 9.
We saw this badass van on our way out of Tennessee.
Ladies and gentlemen, the polls are in, and it’s official: the people have chosen album cover #3. The second one was close behind, but #3 ended up conquering all in the end.
And so, here it is:
And check out this sweet back traycard we drew up with photo by Paul Chéenne:
Pretty cool, ya? This sweet baby’s droppin’ – disc, lyrics, cellophane & all – March 30th at the Maison here in New Orleans on Frenchmen St. We’re proud to announce that Alex McMurray and friends will be opening the show, and Magnetic Ear will be playing the afterparty. Following the release we’ll be leaving for a four month national tour to support Volume III’s release. Check the sidebar for dates on this tour as they roll in ——>
Thanks everybody who voted for the cover. Even if yours didn’t win, I think you’ll find a little piece of all 3 in the finished product. One month till it’s yours. Until then…
Volume III is almost finished being mixed/mastered, and so we need an album cover pronto! Help us decide – which of the 3 samples below is your favorite?
So, what’s it gonna be – #1, #2, or #3? Let us know on our Facebook wall or in the comments section below and we’ll post the winner next week. ~ DBRS
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re into day 3 at the Music Shed, and already laid the bed tracks for every song! To regale with our studio escapades, we bring you more pictures, including Big Charlie’s rendition of the Fat Samurai!
Keep it crazy,
