Tonight we return to Huntsville at the Crossroads Cafe to put on a night of music and burlesque. Huntsville’s own, The Counter Clockwise, will start off the night with their dark, alternative, lounge punk sideshow. We will follow with enough brass to blow the place down and the Rosy Purrles will dance throughout the whole ordeal. Not too bad for a Thursday. Show starts at 8.
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!
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…
Got a whole host of new dates up now ———————————————————>
Follow on tour as we work our way back home for the next one: 11.11.11 at the Blue Nile -> Our 4th CD Release (teasers to come at Shakori…)
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!

Man, that’s a lot of shows. What a long way we’ve come.
And what a long way to go…
See you at the next Dirty Bourbon River Show Show.
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.
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!
