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!”
I’m trying to count up how many times we’ve performed in Asheville, that’s including busking as well, and we just can’t be sure anymore. We’ve been back so many times it feels like a home away from home. We’ve had the opportunity to play around the city at different bars, clubs, corners, and brew halls, and tonight we’re adding a new spot to the list.
We’re excited to make our debut in such a beautiful place and hope you can join us!
We are also incredibly thrilled to officially announce that our total amount raised for our Kickstarter project is exactly $10,600. To everyone who shared, supported and donated, we did it, folks! But really you did it, and in return we, along with Craig and everyone at The Living Room, will sweat and bleed to give you the best record we can. You have opened a huge door for us, and we’re gonna be charging through with guns blazing!
Come one and all to the Emerald Lounge in Asheville, NC for the Downtown After 5 After-Party tonight to help us wrap up our North Carolina leg of our Fall Tour! We’ll be joined by Asheville’s own gypsy folk punk funk extraordinaires, Sirius.B, so it’s sure to be a night of raucous good music, drink and dance! Dirty Bourbon will warm things up at 9:15, and then end the night with Sirius.B in the middle. The show kicks off at 9:15, and tickets are only $5. Not too bad for a Friday night!
Where y’at NC? Playing in Boone tonight (at the Boone Saloon) and in Asheville tomorrow (w/ Sirius B at the Emerald Lounge). These will be our last 2 NC shows of the tour, so make sure to tell a few peeps and come on out!
