Last night was wild at the Maison with Mississippi Rail Co.! If you’re in town right now, you know today is gonna get even more wild, and the day after and the day after! For today Endymion rides, and Mardi Gras is in full effect.
If you’re in town then you’re on the route, somewhere along Canal St drinking and dancing and yelling. Well if you’re looking for some entertainment, alls you gotta do is walk on down S Telemachus St. to a neighborhood bar called 12 Mile Limit. There you can enjoy some delicious food, brews, and music for an all day and night Endymion block party. Dirty Bourbon will be joining up with Sweet Crude again to give y’all a damn good time.
Sweet Crude will perform before the parade and Dirty Bourbon will drop the beat after. Don’t miss out folks!!
Gonnabe a crazy one tonight y’all. Got Mississippi Rail Company playing at 10:30 and then Dirty Bourbon River Show to follow at midnight. Come on out to the Maison on Frencmen. It’s gonna be a party. Oh, and it’s free. Boom.
It’s official! This June we’ll be performing at the 2013 Radio & Television Correspondents Dinner in Washington. The event is traditionally attended by the President of the United States and will be broadcast nationally on CSPAN. This is a huge honor and we are looking forward to getting spiffy and representing New Orleans in the best way possible.
We also have a whole bunch of new showdates posted on the left side bar as well <— check ’em out, tons of new ones, including a Lundi Gras party with New Orleans’ own Soul Rebels at the Blue Nile on February 11th.
Headed to Piety Studio in the Bywater tomorrow to begin recording Volume IV – stay tuned!
It’s going down in a very big way ladies and gentlemen – this Monday, February 20th – Lundi Gras as we call it here in NOLA – at the Maison on Frenchmen.
Dirty Bourbon River Show takes the stage. This is our first New Orleans show of 2012, and we’ve got a whole hellofalot to show you. But no point talking ourselves up – you know how we do.
Debauche (New Orleans, LA) takes the stage. Russian folk punk stomp music in the vein of Gogol. They do it right. Don’t miss this shit.
Vegabond Swing (Lafayette, LA) takes the stage. Gypsy Jazz Circus Punk Rock to close out the night. Damn fine players. Crazy Music. Just what you need.
* * * * *
… And so, that’s quite the wild 3 ring circus to round out your Mardi Gras, ya? And if that wasn’t enough, guess who’ll be DJing all night up stairs in the Penthouse? None other than Mr. Mannie Fresh himself. And if that wasn’t enough, guess what else?
The entire show is free.
Better get there early. It’s gonna be wall to wall by the time we take the stage. Hope to see you there.
It has begun! Last night 1000 members of Krewe du Vieux paraded down the streets of the French Quarter beginning the new Carnival season here in New Orleans.
Frenchman St. was packed tight with great music, lots of strange characters, and an absurd amount of inappropriate
behavior. Ask any of us about it, we all have many stories to tell.
The night went on and on for many of us, for some a little too long. This morning around 8 many of our neighbors woke up to the sound of a man crashing his SUV into a truck and opened their doors to that SUV flipped over in the street. The man was ok, but needless to say everyone awake at this point was either drunk or severely hungover and in no shape nor in any mood to deal with this idiot. Eventually a policeman and a tow truck came to clean up the mess.
There just ain’t no other place like this y’all. The next parade is on Friday. and the next Dirty Bourbon show is on Thursday in Baton Rouge.
It’s that time again. Packin’ up the van, rolling up the warm clothes & sleeping bags, tunin’ up the instruments, getting the fingergloves ready to set off… Here we go… Winter 2012 tour ~ Coming to a city near you… check the sidebar for showdates… more to be added throughout the week… kickingoff in St. Augustine, FL at Jack’s BBQ tomorrow night… catch you in a corner of America soon… till then, keep your eyes and ears open
P.S. Don’t forget to tell a folk or too about our Van Fundraiser. Our van is fucking freezing – no insulation, no heat!
