Great night, great folks at Artmosphere last night – thanks to everyone who came out.
Just landed in Houston – at a giant circuslike warehouse called SuperHappyFunLand where we’ll be playing tonight, so all you Houston peeps, be sure to check us out at 3801 Polk St. at 9pm for a wild and spectacular show.
This Friday, May 7th - 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.
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.
1 am on… 9 piece brass band Booty Trove will close out the night with a free after party, playing as long as the people keep dancing and buying drinks. After that, they ship off for France.
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:

And for you out of towners, don’t you worry – we’ll be there shortly.
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.
And speaking of time, it appears spring break is a mere hours away – I can feel the itchy restlessness brewing on the college campuses – just make sure you’re not headed to Acapulco, ’cause my MGMT teacher says their cutting heads off like crazy over there.
And so, another Friday is upon us. Some good shows to check out:
Well, it’s noon now in New Orleans – in a couple of hours, I’ll have a daiquiri in hand…
Wanna join me?
