Thickening up that Mustache – good undergrowth improvement as well.
Ok, so here’s how it is: Just because there’s less oil from the BP spill floating around now doesn’t mean that that shit is over. It’s right around now that we’re starting to feel the real effects of this great misdeed. Tourism – the unfortunate lifeblood of our fair city of New Orleans – is super low this fall – restaurants closin, less drinkin’, Saints ain’t doing so good – and it’s trickling into the families. Less money = less food, poorer education for the kids. That’s some fucked up shit.
Let’s help fix that shit.
Coleman Jernigan has helped to organize a coalition of friends, musicians, and advocates to assist the United Way of Greater New Orleans to host a day of benefit concerts at The Howlin’ Wolf and Howlin’ Wolf Den in the Warehouse District of New Orleans.

Hello everybody – new month, new weather – time to get the ball rolling again. Couple of things we’re working on:
1) Our 3rd album – Volume Two. Just finished mapping out another song for this beast, titled “Mad” (check it here). Have about 8 out of 10 songs started. Tracking a few of them down at the Music Shed on the 23rd (thanks Elizabeth!). This album is really shaping out – and I’m really happy with how our individual sound is developing.
2) October Tour. Slipping out of NOLA for a minute at the end of the month to play a few shows & festivals in the Carolinas and Virginia with our dear friends Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Got insurance seats in the van now (just need seatbelts). Can’t express how f’in excited I am for this run. Yargh.
3) Causes. Playing a clinic for the children of the Big Top on the 8th, then a gulf spill aid festival called WarehouseFest 2010, then closing out the month with Take the Lake festival on the 30th in Wilmington, NC.
4) My uncle – Bryan Adams – died last Thursday. He was a great man and supporter of the Dirty Bourbon River Show – if you remember back to our Kickstarter project last may – he was the largest of our donors – donating $667. Don’t ask how he came to that number; he was a wild, and incalculable man. A great American. Everything all rolled into one. Check the obit here.
RIP Uncle B.
