Tonight – at One Eyed Jack’s in the French Quarter – we partake in the most poppinest ever. Grand, spectacular, wild, and erotic – The circus is fully fired up now, and this time it’s a 4 ring: Dirty Bourbon River Show, New Grass Country Club, Booty Trove & A-Free-Ka.
It’s going down like this:
9pm Doors open
10pm 12 piece beat hooligans A-Free-Ka starts the show
11pm New Grass Country Club begins. Fresh from the release of their new debut LP ‘Join the Club’ they’ll be bringing the old and a whole lotta new too.
Midnight Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. Heading off on their summer tour with New Grass the day after, DBRS is excited to present a jam-packed show with a bunch of new songs, antics, players, burlesque dancers, and more.
And so, as you can probably see, this show is utterly ridiculous. Over the course of the night you’ll see 4 bands and at least 40 different instruments onstage. You’ll hear things you’ve never imagined. You might even shit your pants its so good.
Yes, it’s that good.
Tickets are $10 in advance, but only $5 presale. Yup. That’s right. 4 bands for only 5 bucks. Find a band member for tickets or click the link below to order online:

The other day an old friend of mine reminded me of another old friend of mine – Leon Redbone. I love the way the brain reacts to the rediscovery of old, cherished music. Hands down one of the best, personable, and interesting interpreters of American folk music, Leon Redbone showed from Cyprus in the ’70’s, and has since built a steady cult following for his comedic, skillful mastery of guitar and voice.
Now about as old as my pappy, Leon Redbone is still slingin’ strong – raspy, full of kick – yessir, hmm, have a bourbon, have a chuckle, and check out his wonderful version of “Shine On, Harvest Moon”:
It begins this Friday Night – city starts filling up, some of the best shows in the world… Tonight, on the grounds – P-funk, Dr. John, the regulars – plus a few new young additions – Revivalists will be making their Jazz Fest Debut at 11:20 am on the Gentilly Stage, followed by Glasgow’s Alexis Marceaux and her band on the Lagnipipe stage at 12:35pm – then it just gets wild after that…
Then, tonight, I’ll be heading over to the Howlin’ Wolf, where I’ll be working the floor & door for the Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings/Dumpstafunk show (last fest Dave Matthews couldn’t stop ranting about Dumpstafunk, if you haven’t yet, check ’em here). And if that’s not enough, Caddywhompus will be releasing their new LP at the Mother-in-Law Lounge. Then tomorrow, the legendary Rakim will be playing with Rebirth at Howlin’ Wolf. The good music never stops in this city. Bring it.
Two weeks until Dirty Bourb & New Grass kick off their summer tour at One Eyed Jack’s. So much to do, so little time! Not to mention school & jazz fest – like a RZA beat, out of control!
Friday, May 7th it begins, here, in New Orleans. Just finished the summer showbills. Peep them here:
Not bad, ya? Can’t wait to kick off in the quarter – tix are $10 at the door, $5 in advance – get ’em here and avoid them punk ass lines and hassles: the hot shit. More to come shortly…
DBRS drummer Dane “Bootsy” Schindler & Co-Manager Clay Miller turned 21 this weekend.
It was amazing. Still a little drunk, and it’s Wednesday.
This Friday, if you happen to be in the greater Jackson, Mississippi area (or have a vehicle capable of great speed) then join us at the Ole Tavern (416 George St.). It’s us and New Grass Country Club, who are hot off a scorching CD release show last Friday. If you missed their set, then believe me, brother, you missed something special. It’s gonna be an old fashioned Friday night throwdown with hollering and swilling but hopefully minus swinging if ya hear me.
Also special sidenote, Bootsy will officially turn 21 at midnight (so will I for that matter), so give him a birthday hug or drink or polite smile. He loves that shit. Anyway, come on out, tell the peoples in the great state of Mississippi! Dirty Bourbon River Show is coming through for the FIRST time ever and they’ve brought something to share!
