What’s up y’all!? Happy Holidays and all that good stuff to you and yours!
Today I’m excited to share with y’all a record I literally picked up an hour ago at a local spot here in New Orleans – Kitchen Witch! It’s a wonderful store on Bayou Rd Market and run by a lovely lady named Debbie and the whole store is filled with cookbooks of all types – and records!
A few days I was in a local bar and heard Ms Teena Marie on their radio and got all types of excited about the music – and today I just so happened to find her record – It Must Be Magic!
If you haven’t heard her music, check it out! Her band is killing!
Tonight we’re playing in Ocean Springs, MS at the Government St Grocery! Hitting at 10pm! Take it easy y’all!
What up what up y’all?! We’re moving and grooving along back out on the road, and as always, collecting what we can when we can!
Here’s a haul I got earlier this month from a garage sale in Dearborn, MI.
All for $6!!
However, one of these things is not like the other unfortunately. *It’s important folks to always check the record before you buy it, because you may find yourself with a copy of Led Zeppelin’s I in the sleeve of Physical Graffiti, and that can be a real boner kill.
But luckily for me the people who were having this garage sale were also the same people who helped fix up our van’s A/C (SMALL WORLD)…So they said I could exchange the record, and I traded it out for these beauties!
Yeah, pretty fucking awesome!
Tonight we’re hitting in Charleston, SC at a most excellent spot – The Charleston Pour House!!
We’ll be joined up with locals _ Whiskey Diablo, so get there early and enjoy you some live music y’all!
Downbeat is 9:45PM w/ Whiskey Diablo! DBRS at 11PM!
What’s up y’all? The sun is shining and it’s looking like another beautiful day in Colorado, and I’ve got a stack of new records on my lap.
Yeah y’all, it’s been a good haul so far, there’s more too but I don’t have enough lap space! I’m excited about all of em too but especially for that ZZ Top record – it’s a live one from their concert in New
Orleans at The Warehouse!
Tonight we’re in gorgeous Gold Hill and performing at the Gold Hill Inn! Showtime is 9pm! It’s sure to be a hot and sweaty one! See y’all there!
So I’ve picked up about a dozen records on this tour so far, some in stores and some as gifts (thanks again to Chuck and Marg for the Beatles records!), and they’re all gonna be great to hear once I’m back home.
Here’s some of what I’ve picked up so far….
Mandrill – Mandrill Is – Ape Is High
Elton John – Madman Across the Water
The Beatles – Live at the Hollywood Bowl – Twist and Shout
I also got a hold of two Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass records, two Sly & the Family Stone, The Platters, The Miracles, and more… Looking forward to posting up some photos when I get home.
Come join us tonight in Annapolis, MD as we make our debut at the classy Rams Head On Stage. Show time is 8pm. See y’all there!!
I love vinyl records. I LOVE them. I love how they feel, how they look, and especially how they sound. The past few years I’ve been digging through bins and shelves and am very proud of the collection that grows in my room. So much in fact that I would love to share it you! So with nothing left to say, let’s see what spinning in Bootsy’s Box of Records!
Do you know The Iceman? Have you heard the voice that belongs to Mississippi born Jerry Butler? A key member in The Impressions, Jerry Butler is behind some of the best love songs to come out of the 60s. The Iceman Cometh(’68) is Jerry Butler’s 11th studio album, and it is side-to-side one of my favorite records right now. On top of how great it sounds, the record comes with a fantastic signed photograph of the Iceman.
And yes folks the music sounds as good as he looks. Here’s the song “Never Give You Up” featured on Side 2 on The Ice Man Cometh.
Hope you enjoyed that! Tonight Dirty Bourbon is kicking the second half of our summer tour off in Belmar, New Jersey at Tenth Ave. Burrito! Showtime is 10pm, see y’all there!
Tonight we’ll be rocking the Red Stick for a 3rd time with yet another killer 3 ring circus at the Spanish Moon. Dirty Bourbon’ll be starting the night off right at 10pm sharp with a no-hands-barred set chalked full of big announcements, beefed up bari/tenor horn sections, and yet another new song. Following at 11pm will be Phantom Party BR locals the Have Nauts.
A power trio founded on “Motown and dirty rock’n’roll,” the Have Nauts boasts a promising line-up with Jason Ourso on guits, guts and voice, Michael Roy on drums and Cohen Hartmen on bass. There’s a really good article in Stereo Gumbo on these fellas here. For extra listening pleasure check out their bassist’s other project – Cohen Hartmen and the Bone Machine – here.
Finally, closing out the night will be none other than our dear friends Glasgow. This will be our 5th show with the Craft Brothers & Company (they’re also on our upcoming album Vol II) and every time we play with them something magic seems to happen.
You’ve probably (hopefully) heard of Glasgow by now, but if not, I highly recommend you check out their unique brand of classy, downright nasty rock’n’roll here.
If after that you still want more, peep this impromptu megaphone gypsy string stomp Dirty Bourb and Glasgow threw together at the Dragon’s Den last year:
Hope to see you there!
P.S. Special announcement on Sunday – check the interwebs!
