Hello folks, it’s time for another installment of BBR!
This week I’m pulling out another new record from my birthday bag and going with the classic Rolling Stones’ album, “Sticky Fingers!”
Released in 1971, it’s considered the Stones’ best album having gone triple platinum with hits like “Wild Horses,” “Brown Sugar,” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking.” This edition I have features the controversial “zipper” that when unzipped reveals and tiny pair of whitey-tighties compliments of Andy Warhol. (This zipper would eventually be changed because it caused damage to the vinyl during shipment) It’s a wild cover, one that VH1 named the “No. 1 Greatest Album Cover” of all time.
So I hope enjoy this album, I know I certainly do…
Tonight we’re at Cafe Nine in New Haven, CT. The Devil Plays Poker opens up at 8pm. Dirty Bourbon is set to follow! We’ll see y’all there.
* Shoutout to Mike and Amanda for this record. Good people in North Carolina y’all, even if they are Panthers fans..
Beyond excited about my recent score at Guitar Center. This stylish baby comes with a matching bag and stretchy mouth piece. I’m gonna use her for practice while on the road. I think I’ll call her Bessie.
In other news we play tonight in Cambridge Massachusetts at the Lizard Lounge. Doors 8:30, show starts at 9:30. It’s gonna be a great night.

For today’s edition of BBR, I’m picking my new copy of Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album. I received this record as a birthday gift last week, and I just can’t stop looking at it.
This vinyl edition marks the 20th Anniversary of the initial album release. As many RATM fans know, the album cover for this release features the historical photograph of the self-immolation of Thich Quang Durc. However, this new XX edition of the album features the image on the vinyl itself.
So because it is Earth Day and because people need a real swift kick in the ass when it comes to caring for our planet, I’ve chosen this album. I hope it lights a fire in you today.
Tonight we’re in Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn Bowl opening for folks rockers Cabinet! Show starts at 8pm.
See y’all there. ~Boots.
It’s going down tonight in D.C. at Gypsy Sally’s! 4 piece Brooklyn-based Roosevelt Dime starts the show at 8:30 then Dirty Bourbon closes out the night at 10pm. Tix are $15 at the door, or $12 at the above link. Come get some!
Gig tonight at The Southern Cafe & Music Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia. Charlottesville’s own funk outfit, the Bobby Midnight Band, will start the show at 8:30. Dirty Bourbon will close it out at 9:30.
Happy Record Store Day Everybody!!
For this edition of BBR I’m gonna share with y’all what some amazing friends gave me last night for Mein Geburtstag.
Amazing friends indeed, that’s Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album (XX edition), Jack DeJohnette’s Pictures, Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers (with zipper action), and The Great Adventures of Slick Rick! I mean does it get much better than that? ….. No, it doesn’t.
So for today’s featured album I’m sticking with another hip-hop classic, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick!”
Tonight we’re blowing up the great GREY EAGLE in Asheville, NC. Hank West and The Smoking Hots are laying it down at 9 and Dirty Bourbon will set it ablaze at 10.
See y’all there. Boots
Ladies and gentlemen,
Tonight we’ll be celebrating our dear drummer, Dane Bootsy Schindler’s birthday with a grand return to North Carolina! Ellis Dyson & the Shambles will be joining us for a night of revelry and libations at Chapel Hill’s own Local 506!
Doors open up at 8 pm, and the show kicks off at 9. Come celebrate Dane’s birthday the right way!
Now, enjoy some celebratory second line music, Bavarian style, courtesy of our friends, Magnetic Ear!
Party tonight at the Charleston Pour House! The Butternecks will start the night off at 10 and Dirty Bourbon will close it out at 11:15.
For this next edition of BBR, I’ll be sharing with y’all a hip-hop classic in my collection – Paul’s Boutique by the Beastie Boys.
Noah gave me this record a few years back on my birthday and it’s definitely one of my prized collections.
Easily one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time, the amount of samples used on this album is astounding and credit must be given to the Dust Brothers who used over 105 songs to create the backing tracks. (They were even sued by the Beatles!)
So check out the album that Miles Davis claims to have never grown tired listening to.
Tonight we’re at Jaxlive in Jacksonville, Fl with Dr. SirBrother and Brent Byrd & The Suitcase Gypsies.
Doors open at 8pm. More info HERE
See yall there. ~Boots.
