This Tuesday night (March 23rd) Greensboro, North Carolina 6 piece folksters Holy Tent Ghost Revival will be playing at Cafe Prytania at 10pm. They sound really good – one side of their coin is very folk-rootslike – the other, very ecclectic – mixing in Trombones and Euphoniums for a big, sweet, plump ol’ sound. They’re making their way back home from SXSW, and so we figured we’d invite them out to New Orleans for a good old time.
Check them out here. They’ll be joined by a Dirty Bourbon acoustic set at 9pm, and a New Grass Country Club acoustic set closing out the night at 11pm. $5 bucks. Come get folked up. It’s the good stuff.
Yessir. This Friday (March 12th) Frenchmen St. is gonna be the mother cluckin’ sheit – poppin’ off the brim with fat beats, drunken eyes, lingering smiles… Where you need to be: The Blue Nile. New Orleans Bingo Show! is partnering with the Foburg folks to bring you 4 fat bands – Bears of Blue River, One Man Machine, the Givers, and Yours Truly. Here’s how it’s going down:
Show kicks off at 9:30 pm with Chicago folksters the Bears of Blue River. Easy, smooth, folk soul. Good stuff. NBC Correspondent Rob Hudson said their music makes him “want to walk naked through the woods!”
Next up, at 10:30pm – New Orleans own funky psychedelic pop powerhouse One Man Machine & the Powers that Be. Peep the music here: One Man Machine. Yessir.
Then, come Midnight – Yours Truly takes the stage. The Dirty Bourbon River Show has some special antics planned for you! Many, many new songs, new shenanigans, even a new instrument will be introduced! Come see what we’ve been cookin’ up. It’s wild, a great mix of the old, and a whole lot of the new too. Oooohhh weeeeee!
Closing out the night round 2 am is Foburg Headliner – Lafayette’s Folk Pop Pranksters the Givers. Check ’em out here. They’ll treat you right.
It’s gonna be a damn fine night, chalked full of some damn good music and people. I hope you all can make it out. $10 gets you access all night – the Blue Nile is at 532 Frenchmen Street.
Also, tonight (Thur, March 11th) I’ll be emceeing (& playing a couple songs with 27light) a SXSW fundraiser for us, New Grass, 27 lights, and friends at Cafe Prytania. Tix are $5, all proceeds go to Austin Stipends for all Chkn & Egg artists. That way, we can afford to spread the music! Cafe P is at 3445 Prytania, across from Touro Infirmary.
Last, but not least – we have a website: www.dirtybourbonrivershow.com. Made it ourselves, from scratch. Pretty slick, eh? Soon we’ll feed the blog through there (and get rid of myspace). And as always, let us now if there’s anything else you want to see.
