It has just been confirmed y’all, we will be opening up for the “Screamin’ Eagle of Soul,” Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires on New Years Eve!!
The concert will take place in Washington D.C. at The Hamilton!! It’ll be our debut at this fine venue, and we can barely contain our excitement!
Mr. Bradley’s music has been close to us since the beginning of our band. We listened to him constantly while we were at Loyola when his first album, “No Time for Dreaming,” came out. We were fortunate enough to see him live in Chicago at Millennium Park, and that was an unforgettable concert. He had jumped off stage and hugged each one of us! (We had shown up early to get front row seats)
And now folks, we have the proudest of pleasures to open up for a man who epitomizes what it means to be a true champion of love and perseverance. If you’ve never heard of him or his music please take some time and do so!
This is will be an incredible time y’all!!
Enjoy some good turkey!
And spend it with good company!
We’re in West Palm Beach, Florida tonight to celebrate and stuff our faces at Lafayette’s!
Showtime is 9pm!
Happy Thanksgiving Y’all!
Damn y’all, last week was a great start to this September KUMITE! POW! POW! TOUR!! A big THANK YOU to everyone who took care of us in Nashville, Detroit and Milwaukee!! We had a blast and are looking forward to the weeks coming up. We’ve got plenty of dates in the Midwest just around the corner y’all, so check em out and spread the word. The Kumite! Pow! Pow! Tour is drop-kicking through a town near you!!
For today’s edition of BBR, I’m picking my new copy of Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album. I received this record as a birthday gift last week, and I just can’t stop looking at it.
This vinyl edition marks the 20th Anniversary of the initial album release. As many RATM fans know, the album cover for this release features the historical photograph of the self-immolation of Thich Quang Durc. However, this new XX edition of the album features the image on the vinyl itself.
So because it is Earth Day and because people need a real swift kick in the ass when it comes to caring for our planet, I’ve chosen this album. I hope it lights a fire in you today.
Tonight we’re in Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn Bowl opening for folks rockers Cabinet! Show starts at 8pm.
See y’all there. ~Boots.
Happy Record Store Day Everybody!!
For this edition of BBR I’m gonna share with y’all what some amazing friends gave me last night for Mein Geburtstag.
Amazing friends indeed, that’s Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album (XX edition), Jack DeJohnette’s Pictures, Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers (with zipper action), and The Great Adventures of Slick Rick! I mean does it get much better than that? ….. No, it doesn’t.
So for today’s featured album I’m sticking with another hip-hop classic, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick!”
Tonight we’re blowing up the great GREY EAGLE in Asheville, NC. Hank West and The Smoking Hots are laying it down at 9 and Dirty Bourbon will set it ablaze at 10.
See y’all there. Boots
