Tonight prepare yourselves for the best damn free show you’ll see on Frenchmen all summer long. Hosted by the Maison de la Music & Openhouse Music, It’s going a little something like this:
10 pm (Front Stage)
Megan Jean & the KFB. Guit, upright, stompbox, banjo & washboard-slangin’ Charleston Gothic Blues duo. This shit will kick your ass.
11 pm (Back Stage)
Back (literally, today) from a month long tour of the S & SE, Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. New, unheard songs, burlesque interlude, fire, whiskey pours & more, it’s going down tonight ladies & gents.
Midnight (Front Stage)
Atlanta, GA’s Blair Crimmins & the Hookers. Variety Hour Dixieland rock – stuff that makes you boogie. Don’t miss this one folks. The Maison (508 Frenchmen), 10pm tonight – and best of all, the show is free.
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.
Just pulled in to yesterday… had an amazing Halloween Tour; feels good to be back.
Thank you everyone who showed us such good hospitality on the road – specially Peter, Julie, Doug, Billy & most importantly, Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Mucho pictures and videos to come as we get them processed.
Catch us at our normal spot tonight – Wolf’s Den – for Big Busk Burlesque! Only one month left!
