It’s been two months ladies and gentlemen. And now here we are – back from a long national tour – with a lot of things to show you.
The show is free, tonight, at the Maison on Frenchman street. The party starts at 10pm with Baton Rouge’s own Gypsy Space Caravan. We – the almighty Dirty Bourbon River Show – with burlesque by the Rosy Purrles & a full brass section courtesy of Booty Trove, go on at 11:30. Our dear friends from Lafayette, The Howdies, will play the afterparty from 1-3. Truly, the show of the century!
This Friday!!! Brass, Burlesque & Bourbon Pours – Free Show at the Maison
This is what happened last time we played the Maison
Tonight prepare yourselves for the best damn free show you’ll see on Frenchmen all summer long. Hosted by the Maison de la Music & Openhouse Music, It’s going a little something like this:
10 pm (Front Stage)
Megan Jean & the KFB. Guit, upright, stompbox, banjo & washboard-slangin’ Charleston Gothic Blues duo. This shit will kick your ass.
11 pm (Back Stage)
Back (literally, today) from a month long tour of the S & SE, Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. New, unheard songs, burlesque interlude, fire, whiskey pours & more, it’s going down tonight ladies & gents.
Midnight (Front Stage)
Atlanta, GA’s Blair Crimmins & the Hookers. Variety Hour Dixieland rock – stuff that makes you boogie. Don’t miss this one folks. The Maison (508 Frenchmen), 10pm tonight – and best of all, the show is free.
Yur damn right.
Sadly, after six wild, wonderful, raucous months we will no longer be able to continue as house band for the Big Busk! burlesque night. With increased touring and workloads, we simply and unfortunately do not have enough time to continue.
Yes, we too will miss those curvacious conditions...
But hot damn, the memories… such a wonderful and unique rock’n’roll comedia erótica variety hour we have created and experienced… but have no fear – Dirty Bourbon and burlesque come hand in hand, and there will surely be more to come…
Come check our last Big Busk show of the year (and possibly ever):
There’s a fbook event here. Show starts at 9:30pm.
You don’t wanna miss this one – it’s going to be big!
Noah Bonaparte Pais just did a really nice, well thought-out piece on us in this week’s Gambit, check it out:
The Dirty Bourbon River Show honed its sound and repertoire at a weekly gig at the Howlin' Wolf.
Only a band as genetically theatrical as the Dirty Bourbon River Show could subdivide a 30-minute EP into a three-act affair. In July, the New Orleans ensemble issued Free Love, its second self-released record this year, as merch-table fodder and an appetite-whetting intermezzo between Vol. 1, its February debut, and Vol. 2, due in spring 2011. But the platter took on a life of its own: a triple-gatefold, snow-globe carnival whose little big top houses three different introductions and even more personalities, segueing seamlessly from kazoo- and clarinet-blown circus shenanigans to smooth-croon lounge, and finely fingered folk ballads to banjo hoedowns, jazzy sax solos and staccato piano jams…
