Day three is over! We finished tracking all the songs for Vol. IV. Nothing left except for instrument overdubs and vocals. It’s getting close…
New Orleans, LA Tonight! Cafe Prytania (3445 Prytania St, Across From Touro Infirmary). Doors at 9, then show as follows:
11:30pm Dirty Bourbon River Show
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!

Washburn D10CEB Pro acoustic /electric guitar for sale – only one owner (Noah), this guitar has been played in the Dirty Bourbon River Show since its inception, in very good condition, completely set up, great intonation, stays in tune for entire gig, no matter how hard you play it, one small split in the surface finish in the front and standard pick wear on the guard, otherwise looks very good and plays incredible – new delrin nut, string pegs & saddle – this is a pro guitar owned and maintained by a professional musician.
Listen to the albums listed in our “music” section to the right – all acoustic guitar tracking was done with this Washburn. Works great as a studio guitar or a gig guitar. Pick-up/amplification very high for an acoustic.
As a bonus, it has both a 1/4″ and XLR outputs, so you don’t have to use a DI if you’re running into a stage snake. Also has an onboard tuner & eq for lows, mids, hi’s + presence knob. And as a special bonus, I am including 10 sets of Dunlop strings, 5 sets of Martin strings, a new Martin neckstrap, a new Planet Waves black shoulder strap with locks, an used Hohner gig bag, a string winder, and a special Simpsons guitar pick featuring Auto the bus driver.
I’m asking $500 for the package, or you can make a bid on eBay. If you’re interested or have any questions hit me up at: email@example.com

a.k.a. Oak Cliff T-Bone
T-Bone walker is the reason the Blues is what it is today. Legend has it he was the first ever blues performer to use an electric guitar. He roamed the streets of dallas at age 15 opening for national acts and String bands. By the time he was in his twenties he was in Los Angeles headlinging on Central Avenue.
I know you’ve heard this one
Inspiring a generation of Bluesmen
Walker was the childhood hero of many many musicians. B.B. King bought his first electric after he heard “Stormy Monday”, and where do you think Jimi Hendrix learned to play with his teeth? Chuck Berry always listed T-Bone and bandleader Louis Jordan as his first influences.
Albert Collins and Jimmy Vaughn (Stevie’s older brother) talk about T-Bone’s effect on the Texas Blues
