Ladies and gentlemen, the polls are in, and it’s official: the people have chosen album cover #3. The second one was close behind, but #3 ended up conquering all in the end.
And so, here it is:
And check out this sweet back traycard we drew up with photo by Paul Chéenne:
Pretty cool, ya? This sweet baby’s droppin’ – disc, lyrics, cellophane & all – March 30th at the Maison here in New Orleans on Frenchmen St. We’re proud to announce that Alex McMurray and friends will be opening the show, and Magnetic Ear will be playing the afterparty. Following the release we’ll be leaving for a four month national tour to support Volume III’s release. Check the sidebar for dates on this tour as they roll in ——>
Thanks everybody who voted for the cover. Even if yours didn’t win, I think you’ll find a little piece of all 3 in the finished product. One month till it’s yours. Until then…
It’s going down in a very big way ladies and gentlemen – this Monday, February 20th – Lundi Gras as we call it here in NOLA – at the Maison on Frenchmen.
Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. This is our first New Orleans show of 2012, and we’ve got a whole hellofalot to show you. But no point talking ourselves up – you know how we do.
Debauche (New Orleans, LA) takes the stage. Russian folk punk stomp music in the vein of Gogol. They do it right. Don’t miss this shit.
Vegabond Swing (Lafayette, LA) takes the stage. Gypsy Jazz Circus Punk Rock to close out the night. Damn fine players. Crazy Music. Just what you need.

… And so, that’s quite the wild 3 ring circus to round out your Mardi Gras, ya? And if that wasn’t enough, guess who’ll be DJing all night up stairs in the Penthouse? None other than Mr. Mannie Fresh himself. And if that wasn’t enough, guess what else?
The entire show is free.
Better get there early. It’s gonna be wall to wall by the time we take the stage. Hope to see you there.
