Tonight Black Pearl Productions will host three amazing New Orleans bands to kick off the 2nd weekend of Jazz Fest with a special Cinco de Mayo night show. The line up will include:
10pm: Vox & the Hound – Former City Life frontman Leo DeJesus leads this motley bunch through the aural annals of modern indie rock with an emphasis on rhythm and riff-based storytelling.
11pm: Dirty Bourbon River Show – Check out this awesome video Chris from Treetop Media filmed of our CD Release finale last month:
Then, round midnight, finishing the festivities will be Glasgow – Proudly hailing from diverse and colorful New Orleans, Glasgow is a rock band that marries neat suburban charm with boisterous city noise. Strings, guitars, 4-part vocal harmonies & more. Dig it:
Doors open at 9pm. $5 / 18+ – $2 Cuervo shots & margaritas all night long!
Man, still resting up after this past weekend’s CD release run. Had so much fun, met some new people, and saw some old friends. Have you checked out the new record yet? It’s available pretty much everywhere for only $9.99:
Tell your friends, tell your mama, we’re real proud of this one. We’ll be touring it all around America this summer, which I’ll tell you about in the minute.
In the meantime, what’s going on for Dirty Bourbon? What are we up to as of late? What’ve we got for that big ol’ horizon up ahead? Well, I’ll tell ya:
For the rest of this month we won’t be playing any shows. We’ll be training our new bari sax player – Matt “Slyfox” Thomas – and finish writing the songs for Volume III (our next album – the Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction – is already written & tracked, just finishing up overdubs & mixing). Then, in May, we’ll kick off on the 5th for a super duper Cinco de Mayo partay with Glasgow & Vox & the Hound, followed by a month long tour on the eastern seaboard to support the release of Volume II – catch us with Blair Cimmins, Megan Jean & Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Then, come summertime, nother big NOLA show, then back to the east coast for another month. Then, this fall, we’ll be heading west to Colorado for another month tour! And then, we’ll come back home & release our 4th album – Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction. Expect Volume III sometime around spring 2012.
So yup, we’ve got a lot of big things planned for the future.
And don’t forget – tell everyone you know about the new album! This beast’s spreading like wildfire, let’s keep that fire hot.
