This weekend we’ll be performing two days in good ol’ Lafayette, La.
Tonight we’re debuting at The Wild Salmon with the rockabily stylings of The Rotten Cores! They start at 9, and we’ll tag in and finish the night off around 11! It’s gonna get wild and sweaty tonight folks so be prepared to shed a few layers!!
This wonderful event will be showcasing the best inventors, entertainers, and mustaches Lafayette’s artisitc community has to offer. Yours truly will be setting fire to the Acadiana Advocate Main Stage along with local sideshow and burlesque performers and other musical acts including New Orleans’ Russian Mafia Stomp outfit Debauche!! We’ll strike up at 6 and unplug by 7, but the night will continue on with plenty more partying!! Check that schedule!!
Don’t miss a damn good time Lafayette!! Come clean, leave Dirty!
It’s good to be back in good ol’ Winchester, VA, and boy are we excited to wrap up this Summer Tour with our Vaudeville Revue at the always lively Bright Box. Tonight’s entertainment is sure to be an unforgettable experience with comedy, burlesque, and hip-shaking good music!
That’s right, and it’s all happening tonight at the Bright Box. There are only a few tickets left so move quick. Showtime is 8 pm!
It’s been two months ladies and gentlemen. And now here we are – back from a long national tour – with a lot of things to show you.
The show is free, tonight, at the Maison on Frenchman street. The party starts at 10pm with Baton Rouge’s own Gypsy Space Caravan. We – the almighty Dirty Bourbon River Show – with burlesque by the Rosy Purrles & a full brass section courtesy of Booty Trove, go on at 11:30. Our dear friends from Lafayette, The Howdies, will play the afterparty from 1-3. Truly, the show of the century!
Tonight prepare yourselves for the best damn free show you’ll see on Frenchmen all summer long. Hosted by the Maison de la Music & Openhouse Music, It’s going a little something like this:
10 pm (Front Stage)
Megan Jean & the KFB. Guit, upright, stompbox, banjo & washboard-slangin’ Charleston Gothic Blues duo. This shit will kick your ass.
11 pm (Back Stage)
Back (literally, today) from a month long tour of the S & SE, Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. New, unheard songs, burlesque interlude, fire, whiskey pours & more, it’s going down tonight ladies & gents.
Midnight (Front Stage)
Atlanta, GA’s Blair Crimmins & the Hookers. Variety Hour Dixieland rock – stuff that makes you boogie. Don’t miss this one folks. The Maison (508 Frenchmen), 10pm tonight – and best of all, the show is free.
Sadly, after six wild, wonderful, raucous months we will no longer be able to continue as house band for the Big Busk! burlesque night. With increased touring and workloads, we simply and unfortunately do not have enough time to continue.
But hot damn, the memories… such a wonderful and unique rock’n’roll comedia erótica variety hour we have created and experienced… but have no fear – Dirty Bourbon and burlesque come hand in hand, and there will surely be more to come…
Noah Bonaparte Pais just did a really nice, well thought-out piece on us in this week’s Gambit, check it out:
Only a band as genetically theatrical as the Dirty Bourbon River Show could subdivide a 30-minute EP into a three-act affair. In July, the New Orleans ensemble issued Free Love, its second self-released record this year, as merch-table fodder and an appetite-whetting intermezzo between Vol. 1, its February debut, and Vol. 2, due in spring 2011. But the platter took on a life of its own: a triple-gatefold, snow-globe carnival whose little big top houses three different introductions and even more personalities, segueing seamlessly from kazoo- and clarinet-blown circus shenanigans to smooth-croon lounge, and finely fingered folk ballads to banjo hoedowns, jazzy sax solos and staccato piano jams…
