This will be both band’s last hometown show of the year. Entry just 5 bucks, 18+, full bar. ‘Nuff said. See you there.
What in the hell are you talking about Dirty Bourbon River Show? Just what in the hell are you talking about?
Well, our 4th album’s ready. Just picked up the masters today. It’s called “The Old-Timey AfroPop Jibberish Junction”:
Pre-order it on our Bandcamp Site now for only $1.11 and get 3 of the album’s tracks today!
Then, when the album comes out on 11/11/11 – you’ll receive an email with a link to download a full quality version, along with the album art, liner notes & lyrics.
The album will definitely NOT be costing $1.11 when it comes out, so I’d take advantage of this generous offer now.
And just why exactly are we offering such a ludicrously good deal – unannounced, straight out of left field?
Because we’re batshit crazy. Why else?
Hope you enjoy!

Good times in Jackson, MS last night. But so much has happened since then and when we last talked. Hmm, let’s see… where to begin?
The six of us (Me’n'Charlie’n'Bootsy’n'Jimmy’n'Matt & Clay) arrived homeless back in New Orleans at the end of June from our S/SE tour. Bootsy left for Europe for a month, and the remaining five of us found a nice, cheap, big place in the Marigny to lay low for a while. We now live at 1234 Fake St:
We’ve been getting by, hustlin’, bustlin’ & busking (catch us today in Jackson Square and on Frenchmen late afternoonish, getting a slow start) & playing club gigs when we can pick up a drummer (Dave Shirley from E Company has been a godsend ringer). Catch us at Moe’s BBQ in Daphne, AL this Friday, and at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street this Saturday with E Company and the Alex McMurray Band. This show is going to kill…
Also, we’ve picked up a manager – the venerable miss Jaime Coggins. From Holy Ghost Tent Revival (of whom she also manages) to P-funk to Jaco Pastorius to Roberta Fleck, her taste is direct and without falter, and her judgment – keen and sharp like Japanese folded steel. She’ll be handling most of our business end from now on, I’ve updated our contact section should you need to contact her regarding gigs, private parties for the Queen of Atlantis, etc. Here’s a little Leonard Cohen / Dr. Dog mash-up to honor our new union:
Looking forward, we’ve got some big things planned for the rest of the summer. Bootsy gets back from Europe at the beginning of next month, and then the 6 of us will be hitting the road hard (check the sidebar for dates ->) – got another South/Southeast tour (TX, LA, MS, AL, TN, FL, SC, NC, VA) this August, then, come September, we’re headed to Colorado…
Big things in the horizon my friends…
It’s a funny thing, how life moves at such an incredible pace.

P.S. Our 4th album is fully recorded and currently being mastered by Bhob Rainey (who also did Volume Two, a true gentlemen of sound). Me’n'Charlie just finished hand-drawing the cover art ourselves this weekend. Peep it:
Thank you Baton Rouge, Mobile, Lafayette and New Orleans for giving us & Holy Ghost Tent Revival such an incredible weekend. Thank you Tin Men & Chubby Carrier for joining in on the festivities. Thank you everyone who came out and supported us. Man, this weekend was something else.
If you haven’t yet, check out the new album. It’s on Bandcamp, iTunes & Amazon now for only $9.99. And for everybody outside of this deep south bubble Dirty Bourb was born in, we will be coming to your city soon. We’ve got a whole host of dates on the Eastern Seaboard this May & June & some westward dates to follow in the Fall.
And once again, thank you. We hope you enjoy the new record.

Only one week to go until our greatest fxxking show yet. Yessiree ladies and gentlemen, we haven’t been this excited in a while – got a huge one planned for you ~ its going down like this:
Saturday, April 2nd
The Blue Nile on Frenchmen
Show kicks off at 10pm with our dear friends from Greensboro, NC, the one and only Holy Ghost Tent Revival. This 6 piece string/brass extravaganza is the perfect mixture of foot-stompin’ love makin’ folk/roots/blues/dixieland/rock and more. Say hello:
Then, at 11pm, yours truly will be taking the stage, performing for you our newest album – Volume Two. Songs you’ve never heard, old familiars, and everything in between. Good friends, bourbon pours, fireballs and more. So excited to be sharing this newest one with you. We sincerely believe it is our greatest work yet:
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, guess who’ll be closing out the evening? None other than New Orleans’ own the Tin Men. Washboard Chaz, Matt Perrine, Alex McMurray – these cats kill:
If you can’t make the New Orleans Show (which you should, even if you live 300 miles away) you can catch us and Holy Ghost in Baton Rouge on Thursday, Mobile on Friday, and Lafayette an Sunday with Chubby Carrier.
Don’t miss this one. It is going to be our greatest fxxking show yet.
