And then the big daddy kicks off in New Orleans on October 25th at Gasa Gasa – we’ll be doing a super special Halloween VoodooFest Pre-Party w/ Magnetic Ear Brass Band & Friends. Here’s everything you need to know RIGHT HERE.
A dark sex fiend specter is strolling into our midst, reeking of the pungent cologne of pumpkin spice and bad desicions… His or Her gait is marked by the crunch and shuffle of dead leaves… surely to mute the raucous stomp of dancing boots. Head is shrouded in the dark shadows of a brimmed hat… SURELY to cover His or Her shock of red, orange, and yellow locks, marking the year’s twilight and the end of summer. That’s right, Friends! Halloween is fast approaching, and we at the Dirty Bourbon River Show are here to help get the season of mischief, dancing, drinking, and general merry-making off on the right foot!
On October 25th we’ll be joined by our very good friends and local masters of sound, the Magnetic Ear, with special guest, Matt Perrine (sousaphonist and bass man extraordinaire), for our debut performance at one of New Orleans’ freshest new venues, Gasa Gasa! Feel free to dress, dance, and drink festively at this Fine Fall Friday Fete so you can get you prepped a week early for the musical extravagance of Voodoo Fest and Halloween in the Big Easy!
Gasa Gasa only holds about 200 people and we haven’t played in New Orleans since our Volume IV CD Release Party last May, so get your tickets fast, as the show may very well sell out. Here is a link:
