Back home in NOLA. Check out these awesome pictures from our Voodoo fest performance by Tamara Grayson:
This Friday Jazz Fest begins. And this is what you’re going to do:
You’re going to go see Wyclef at the fairgrounds. You’re going to have an amazing time. Then, when he’s done at 7, you’re going to step outside the fairgrounds, and you’re going to see these guys causing a ruckus:
Yessir ladies and gentlemen, Marchfourth Marching Band. After a brief show outside the fairgrounds they’ll be leading a march to the Studio 3 Warehouse (3610 Toulouse Street, by the American Can Company) where there’ll be food, booze, and Art Official DJ’s to warm you up and get the party started.
They will amaze you.
And if that wasn’t enough, to top it all off, Dirty Bourbon will be taking the stage at 10:30pm to finish the night off. We haven’t played in New Orleans since our CD release party at the beginning of this month, so we’re real excited for this one. We’ll have multiple horns and some fire (literally) as well. Don’t miss this night. Here’s your itinerary for this Friday, April 9th:
05:30pm Wyclef John at the Fairgrounds
07:00pm MarchFourth performs at Fairgrounds exit
07:30pm March with MarchFourth to the warehouse
08:00pm Doors open, DJ’s, food & booze, you get comfy
09:00pm MarchFourth Marching Band performs
10:30pm Dirty Bourbon River Show performs
Oh, and did I mention that the show is only Five Dollars!?

Finally, for like the first time in for effen eva, we don’t have to play a show on a Friday night. So we’ll be hittin’ the town, catching some of New Orlean’s finest. Here’s what’s going down in the Big Easy tonight:
Bywater cats, catch either Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes (Loyola Alum’s, Rock mixed w. Strings, Horns, bawdy singing, a damn good time) at the Blue Nile, or the Other Planets (Psychedelic Strange Rock, peep their video here) + Felix at the Always Lounge. Both of these shows start at 10pm. If your hoping for bedroom boogie by 10 & looking for a little earlier entertainment with your pretty little lady, go see Kermit (yeah, I’m pretty sure I don’t need to describe Kermit) at Rock’n’Bowl at 8:30.
Pick of the Night: Break Science at Tipitina’s, 10pm. This show will feature Chali2na (MC from Jurassic 5, an OG, if you’ve never heard Quality Control, do your research) and Kirk Joseph (Susie player from Dirty Dozen, literally one of the best Tubists in the world). Opening the show will be Gypsyphonic Disko. I am particular interested in this. A collaboration between Galactic’s sax player, Ben Ellmen, and DJ Quickly Mart, Gypsyphonic Disko melds gypsy and Balkan horn and chordophone lines with New Orleans grooves and hip hop beats. Peep their tracks here:
Even if you can’t catch the show or don’t live in New Orleans, figured y’all would find this interesting, as it is in the similar vein of DBRS. Enjoy, & hope you have a delicious Friday!
