Dear Good People,
It’s that time again. Packin’ up the van, rolling up the warm clothes & sleeping bags, tunin’ up the instruments, getting the fingergloves ready to set off… Here we go… Winter 2012 tour ~ Coming to a city near you… check the sidebar for showdates… more to be added throughout the week… kicking off in St. Augustine, FL at Jack’s BBQ tomorrow night… catch you in a corner of America soon… till then, keep your eyes and ears open
P.S. Don’t forget to tell a folk or too about our Van Fundraiser. Our van is fucking freezing – no insulation, no heat!
This Saturday we will be playing our last New Orleans show of the year, with our dearest friends – Greensboro NC’s Holy Ghost Tent Revival – together again in the Crescent City on the same stage we first met on nearly two years ago…
We and Holy Ghost have previously as a traveling co-bill played 15 different cities spread across 7 states, and this Saturday will mark our 23rd show together. Come witness the relentless energy and chemistry of two incredibly talented up-and-coming acts as we throw down back-to-back sets like so:
10:00pm Holy Ghost Tent Revival
11:30pm Dirty Bourbon River Show
Show is at Cafe Prytania – 3445 Prytania Street (across from Touro Infirmary) $5 cover, 18+, you can smoke and drink at the bar, they’ve got the hard stuff, and we’ll be pouring free whiskey too, like we always do when we’re home with good guests to visit.
Don’t miss this one.
Tonight marks the Dirty Bourbon River Show’s 200th show. It’s gonna be a special one; we’re playing a co-bill with our dear friends the Howdies. Ever heard of them?
The Howdies are a 4 piece dark bluesrock outfit tinged with rockabilly, punk, and the sounds of spaghetti westerns. They are 100% Louisiana made with 100% pure lightning, and we have done many shows with them in multiple cities/states before. Dig it:
Show starts at 8pm sharp at the Blue Moon Saloon in Lafayette, LA. IT’S GONNA BE A FUCKING PARTY.
200 Shows. Dig it:
This Friday (11/11/11) it is all going to happen. And the Dirty Bourbon River Show will be there with you every step of the way. Here is how this spectacular and magnificent moment in history shall unfold:
11:11am The Dirty Bourbon River Show’s 4th studio album – the “Old-Timey AfroPop Jibberish Junction” – will be released to the world, free for all to download, right here: http://dbrs.bandcamp.com/album/the-old-timey-afropop-jibberish-junction
11:11pm The Dirty Bourbon River Show will kick off a 2 set show at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans, LA. The show will be free, and as well as copies of the new album.
This is a completely free event for all to enjoy. Whether you live in New Orleans or somewhere else in the world, all you have to do is redeem your good time and tell a few people, help spread the word.
A free show and a free album for all.
Definitely one of our best shows ever. Thank you Gypsy Space Caravan, The Howdies, Burlesque by the Rosy Purrles, & Brass Band by Carson, Ashton, Wayne & the Guch for making it so. Can’t wait until the next one…
