Gig tonight at the Ole Tavern in Jackson, Mississippi. The party has been going hard all day and we are going to cap it off at 11. To get you in the St. Patrick day drinking mood, here is a drinking toast that we learned from the great violinist James Hausman.
Here’s to the woman with the pretty red shoes,
She smokes all my smokes, she drinks all my booze,
She ain’t got no cherry, but that ain’t no sin,
Cause she’s still got the box that cherry came in.
We have strings! Today we invited my old orchestra buddies James Hausmann, Sam Craft and Jack Craft to record some overdubs. This session was incredibly fun. The string parts sound fantastic. This is going to be a great record.
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!
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.
