The album will be made available exclusively on our dbrs.bandcamp.com site for free (or, leave behind a little gift if you want! hint hint!) for the next 30 days. A limited edition hand-signed 180 gram vinyl will follow in the spring. Also, to celebrate, we’ll be playing a special New Years Eve show at the Maison on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans tomorrow night at 10pm.
So, whatchya gonna do tomorrow? Go to dbrs.bandcamp.comand download our new album for free, then come see us do it live and in person at the Maison. Not a bad way to bring in the new year at all we’d say. Oh, and we almost forgot – you can preview two of the album’s tracks you’ll be downloading tomorrow right here right now:
It is time for yet another chapter in the rich and ever-transforming history of the Dirty Bourbon River Show. On December 31st, 2013 we will be releasing our 8th studio album – “Accordion Anthology” – via digital download on our Bandcamp Site. A special edition 180 gram vinyl will follow. Produced by Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid and recorded in New Orleans over a five year period at Piety St. Studios, The Music Shed and Loyola University, “Accordion Anthology” features a new accordion-based arrangement of one song from each of DBRS’s past studio albums, intertwined with new, unheard, unreleased material.

Following a special ball dropping countdown ceremony, guests to follow include fellow New Orleanian gypsy stomp mafia band Debauche and annual host DJ Jubilee.
