Gig tonight at the Ole Tavern in Jackson, Mississippi. Show starts at 10.
Gig tonight at the Ole Tavern in Jackson, Mississippi. The party has been going hard all day and we are going to cap it off at 11. To get you in the St. Patrick day drinking mood, here is a drinking toast that we learned from the great violinist James Hausman.
Here’s to the woman with the pretty red shoes,
She smokes all my smokes, she drinks all my booze,
She ain’t got no cherry, but that ain’t no sin,
Cause she’s still got the box that cherry came in.
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:

And from 5.13-6.01 we will be touring the South and the East Coast for our Summer 2011 Tour
Look for it.
This Friday, if you happen to be in the greater Jackson, Mississippi area (or have a vehicle capable of great speed) then join us at the Ole Tavern (416 George St.). It’s us and New Grass Country Club, who are hot off a scorching CD release show last Friday. If you missed their set, then believe me, brother, you missed something special. It’s gonna be an old fashioned Friday night throwdown with hollering and swilling but hopefully minus swinging if ya hear me.
Also special sidenote, Bootsy will officially turn 21 at midnight (so will I for that matter), so give him a birthday hug or drink or polite smile. He loves that shit. Anyway, come on out, tell the peoples in the great state of Mississippi! Dirty Bourbon River Show is coming through for the FIRST time ever and they’ve brought something to share!
