Ladies and Gentlemen,
A dark sex fiend specter is strolling into our midst, reeking of the pungent cologne of pumpkin spice and bad desicions… His or Her gait is marked by the crunch and shuffle of dead leaves… surely to mute the raucous stomp of dancing boots. Head is shrouded in the dark shadows of a brimmed hat… SURELY to cover His or Her shock of red, orange, and yellow locks, marking the year’s twilight and the end of summer. That’s right, Friends! Halloween is fast approaching, and we at the Dirty Bourbon River Show are here to help get the season of mischief, dancing, drinking, and general merry-making off on the right foot!
On October 25th we’ll be joined by our very good friends and local masters of sound, the Magnetic Ear, with special guest, Matt Perrine (sousaphonist and bass man extraordinaire), for our debut performance at one of New Orleans’ freshest new venues, Gasa Gasa! Feel free to dress, dance, and drink festively at this Fine Fall Friday Fete so you can get you prepped a week early for the musical extravagance of Voodoo Fest and Halloween in the Big Easy!
Gasa Gasa only holds about 200 people and we haven’t played in New Orleans since our Volume IV CD Release Party last May, so get your tickets fast, as the show may very well sell out. Here is a link:
Also, here is a link to the Facebook event, if you want additional info, or want to RVSP:

That’s right folks, in our tradition of giving you 2 albums a year, it’s that time again… Ladies and gentlemen, it is our proudest of pleasures to present to you our 6th studio album: The Most Peculiar Thing. And for one day & one day only – 12.21.2012 – this album will be made free for the world.

Live in New Orleans? Even better: Come grab a free copy of the album in person – We’ll be playing a CD release party w/ Magnetic Ear at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street at 11pm. There’s a Facebook event for it HERE if you would like to rvsp & stay posted with release details.
Here’s a little preview track to wet your appetite:

Ladies and gentlemen, the polls are in, and it’s official: the people have chosen album cover #3. The second one was close behind, but #3 ended up conquering all in the end.
And so, here it is:
And check out this sweet back traycard we drew up with photo by Paul Chéenne:
Pretty cool, ya? This sweet baby’s droppin’ – disc, lyrics, cellophane & all – March 30th at the Maison here in New Orleans on Frenchmen St. We’re proud to announce that Alex McMurray and friends will be opening the show, and Magnetic Ear will be playing the afterparty. Following the release we’ll be leaving for a four month national tour to support Volume III’s release. Check the sidebar for dates on this tour as they roll in ——>
Thanks everybody who voted for the cover. Even if yours didn’t win, I think you’ll find a little piece of all 3 in the finished product. One month till it’s yours. Until then…
It’s going down in a very big way ladies and gentlemen – this Monday, February 20th – Lundi Gras as we call it here in NOLA – at the Maison on Frenchmen.
Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. This is our first New Orleans show of 2012, and we’ve got a whole hellofalot to show you. But no point talking ourselves up – you know how we do.
Debauche (New Orleans, LA) takes the stage. Russian folk punk stomp music in the vein of Gogol. They do it right. Don’t miss this shit.
Vegabond Swing (Lafayette, LA) takes the stage. Gypsy Jazz Circus Punk Rock to close out the night. Damn fine players. Crazy Music. Just what you need.
* * * * *
… And so, that’s quite the wild 3 ring circus to round out your Mardi Gras, ya? And if that wasn’t enough, guess who’ll be DJing all night up stairs in the Penthouse? None other than Mr. Mannie Fresh himself. And if that wasn’t enough, guess what else?
The entire show is free.
Better get there early. It’s gonna be wall to wall by the time we take the stage. Hope to see you there.
Tonight marks the Dirty Bourbon River Show’s 200th show. It’s gonna be a special one; we’re playing a co-bill with our dear friends the Howdies. Ever heard of them?
The Howdies are a 4 piece dark bluesrock outfit tinged with rockabilly, punk, and the sounds of spaghetti westerns. They are 100% Louisiana made with 100% pure lightning, and we have done many shows with them in multiple cities/states before. Dig it:
Show starts at 8pm sharp at the Blue Moon Saloon in Lafayette, LA. IT’S GONNA BE A FUCKING PARTY.
200 Shows. Dig it:
This Friday (11/11/11) it is all going to happen. And the Dirty Bourbon River Show will be there with you every step of the way. Here is how this spectacular and magnificent moment in history shall unfold:
