Performing on this fine evening at Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, OH. Festival headliners include Andrew Bird, Ralph Stanley, The Dirty Projectors, & more. Ticket prices range from $140 for access to all events, all the way down to $10 to see just the Samhain Publishing showcase at Japp’s where DBRS will be playing. Our good friends Holy Ghost Tent Revival will be playing before us at 11:30pm, then we will be closing out the night at 12:30am.
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!
Tonight we’ll be rocking the Red Stick for a 3rd time with yet another killer 3 ring circus at the Spanish Moon. Dirty Bourbon’ll be starting the night off right at 10pm sharp with a no-hands-barred set chalked full of big announcements, beefed up bari/tenor horn sections, and yet another new song. Following at 11pm will be Phantom Party BR locals the Have Nauts.
A power trio founded on “Motown and dirty rock’n’roll,” the Have Nauts boasts a promising line-up with Jason Ourso on guits, guts and voice, Michael Roy on drums and Cohen Hartmen on bass. There’s a really good article in Stereo Gumbo on these fellas here. For extra listening pleasure check out their bassist’s other project – Cohen Hartmen and the Bone Machine – here.
Finally, closing out the night will be none other than our dear friends Glasgow. This will be our 5th show with the Craft Brothers & Company (they’re also on our upcoming album Vol II) and every time we play with them something magic seems to happen.
You’ve probably (hopefully) heard of Glasgow by now, but if not, I highly recommend you check out their unique brand of classy, downright nasty rock’n’roll here.
If after that you still want more, peep this impromptu megaphone gypsy string stomp Dirty Bourb and Glasgow threw together at the Dragon’s Den last year:
Hope to see you there!
P.S. Special announcement on Sunday – check the interwebs!

Big up to Vince’s mom for showing me them last year. Good stuff. Show’ll probably sell out 1st hour or so; I think they’ve already presold over 1000 tickets. God only knows what kind of hippie shenanigans I’ll face tonight. Could be good. Less find out…

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?
