Tonight! A Spectacular & Magnificent Jamboree at the Big Top! Yessir ladies and gentlemen, come out early for one of the most exquisite, sultry, tickling summer evenings we’ve ever put together…
It’s going up at the Big Top (1638 Clio St.), 6pm tonight (Sunday August 1st) – we’ll begin with a 5 course meal, then at 8pm Dirty Bourbon will take the stage (our last show of the summer) followed by our North Carolinian friends Holy Ghost Tent Revival at 9pm.
Nothing in history will ever be like tonight. The cunning uniqueness of tonight’s occasion is spilling over the brim; I suggest you come drink from this cup before it’s all gone.
Wednesday in Austin at the Nomad Bar was amazing, thanks to everyone who came out and danced to our diddys and showed support.
Tonight we’ve got ourselves a five band bill crazy ass Friday Night Throwdown with Webbed, Lindby, and Like Burning Glass. It should be an epic night in Fort Worth at the Connection, located at 3177-c Alta Mere Drive. Things will be kicking off at about 8 so be sure to not lollygag and get your booty down there.
In case you didn’t catch it: The Connection 3177-c Alta Mere Drive, Fort Worth TX
As a sidenote, The Mitchells, (Wayne’s fam) has been more than kind enough to let us hooligans stay with them. Since we arrived we have all taken turns on the go-kart. Bootsy’s turn was a touch more eventful as he was not able to avoid a cow pattie and got splattered by dung. Turns out getting poop on your face is funny to everyone else, and Dane learned that the hard way. Here’s a picture of him cleaning up.
Hello! As I type these words, the caravan is barrelling towards Austin (ah technology!). Last night at SuperHappyFunLand was a lot of fun, makes sense since they have a super happy land with which to encapsulate said fun in Houston. Many thanks to those who came out and jammed with us. We had a great time and we hope to come back real real soon.
If you’re in Austin, check us out at the Nomad Bar on Wednesday, (you may even catch us sooner if you hang out on Sixth Street at the right time tonight) til then be well y’all!
This Friday, if you happen to be in the greater Jackson, Mississippi area (or have a vehicle capable of great speed) then join us at the Ole Tavern (416 George St.). It’s us and New Grass Country Club, who are hot off a scorching CD release show last Friday. If you missed their set, then believe me, brother, you missed something special. It’s gonna be an old fashioned Friday night throwdown with hollering and swilling but hopefully minus swinging if ya hear me.
Also special sidenote, Bootsy will officially turn 21 at midnight (so will I for that matter), so give him a birthday hug or drink or polite smile. He loves that shit. Anyway, come on out, tell the peoples in the great state of Mississippi! Dirty Bourbon River Show is coming through for the FIRST time ever and they’ve brought something to share!
New Grass Country Club, friends of ours, are releasing their debut album April 9th @ Cafe Prytania (Wine & Spirits)! It is entitled Join The Club. Come see these five young ruffians display their scruffy vagabond style jams cus basically thats whats up! They have toiled hard on this for a good long while and now they wanna party wit yall. I’ll testify that this record is nothing short of 11 straight bangin soon-to-be-anthems for this and the next generation. We’ll be at the party and so will Sun Hotel, so ya know it sure to be that kind of crazy party. For those penny pinchers, Cover is only $5. For those more generous, the album is gonna cost $5 too! $10 to see 3 bands and get a cd?!? That’s cheaper than a movie, son!
Oh, and here’s a free movie with Jacky D of New Grass fame talkin on the album and playin yall a little ditty.
Just some thoughts as this spectacular & magnificent Friday approaches – excited as all hell for New Grass Country Club’s new album “Join the Club” – I recorded it myself late last October, and let me tell you, it sounds damn good – and now soon, you all can hear it too… I know, if you like any kind of folk, blues, bluegrass, or roots music, if you give this record a good listen, you will fall in love with it like I have. I really like the boys in New Grass, they’re a great band, and I hope you all come out and share the experience this Friday. More show preview goodies to come as the date nears. Stay alert. Word.
