Vol. II Album Review in StereoGumbo – Click the picture above.
Man, still resting up after this past weekend’s CD release run. Had so much fun, met some new people, and saw some old friends. Have you checked out the new record yet? It’s available pretty much everywhere for only $9.99:
Tell your friends, tell your mama, we’re real proud of this one. We’ll be touring it all around America this summer, which I’ll tell you about in the minute.
In the meantime, what’s going on for Dirty Bourbon? What are we up to as of late? What’ve we got for that big ol’ horizon up ahead? Well, I’ll tell ya:
For the rest of this month we won’t be playing any shows. We’ll be training our new bari sax player – Matt “Slyfox” Thomas – and finish writing the songs for Volume III (our next album – the Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction – is already written & tracked, just finishing up overdubs & mixing). Then, in May, we’ll kick off on the 5th for a super duper Cinco de Mayo partay with Glasgow & Vox & the Hound, followed by a month long tour on the eastern seaboard to support the release of Volume II – catch us with Blair Cimmins, Megan Jean & Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Then, come summertime, nother big NOLA show, then back to the east coast for another month. Then, this fall, we’ll be heading west to Colorado for another month tour! And then, we’ll come back home & release our 4th album – Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction. Expect Volume III sometime around spring 2012.
So yup, we’ve got a lot of big things planned for the future.
And don’t forget – tell everyone you know about the new album! This beast’s spreading like wildfire, let’s keep that fire hot.
Tonight we release our new record – Volume Two – at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen St. in New Orleans.
Doors Open at 9:30.
Holy Ghost Tent Revival kicks off the show at 10pm.
Dirty Bourbon headlines at 11pm.
Tin Men finish out the party round Midnight.
It’s going to be a giant, spectacular explosion of good music and good people.
And if you haven’t checked out the new record yet, it’s available on Bandcamp, Amazon & iTunes now for only $9.99 now.
And tonight, you can here it live.
Hope to see you there my friends.
Yes, yes good people, the weekend we have preping and preening for has finally arrived. To celebrate the release of ‘Volume Two’, we are doin a quick jaunt throught the Gulf that starts TONIGHT! in Baton Rouge with our friends Holy Ghost Tent Revival.

We sincerely hope y’all can make it out, we’ve been working on this one for awhile and the excitement is like that of a child on Christmas morning (for real!). See you lovely people out there on the road.
Only one week to go until our greatest fxxking show yet. Yessiree ladies and gentlemen, we haven’t been this excited in a while – got a huge one planned for you ~ its going down like this:
Saturday, April 2nd
The Blue Nile on Frenchmen
Show kicks off at 10pm with our dear friends from Greensboro, NC, the one and only Holy Ghost Tent Revival. This 6 piece string/brass extravaganza is the perfect mixture of foot-stompin’ love makin’ folk/roots/blues/dixieland/rock and more. Say hello:
Then, at 11pm, yours truly will be taking the stage, performing for you our newest album – Volume Two. Songs you’ve never heard, old familiars, and everything in between. Good friends, bourbon pours, fireballs and more. So excited to be sharing this newest one with you. We sincerely believe it is our greatest work yet:
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, guess who’ll be closing out the evening? None other than New Orleans’ own the Tin Men. Washboard Chaz, Matt Perrine, Alex McMurray – these cats kill:
If you can’t make the New Orleans Show (which you should, even if you live 300 miles away) you can catch us and Holy Ghost in Baton Rouge on Thursday, Mobile on Friday, and Lafayette an Sunday with Chubby Carrier.
Don’t miss this one. It is going to be our greatest fxxking show yet.
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!
P.P.S. I couldn’t resist (Glasgow is Legendary):
Dig it – 3 new songs:

Hello everybody – new month, new weather – time to get the ball rolling again. Couple of things we’re working on:
1) Our 3rd album – Volume Two. Just finished mapping out another song for this beast, titled “Mad” (check it here). Have about 8 out of 10 songs started. Tracking a few of them down at the Music Shed on the 23rd (thanks Elizabeth!). This album is really shaping out – and I’m really happy with how our individual sound is developing.
2) October Tour. Slipping out of NOLA for a minute at the end of the month to play a few shows & festivals in the Carolinas and Virginia with our dear friends Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Got insurance seats in the van now (just need seatbelts). Can’t express how f’in excited I am for this run. Yargh.
3) Causes. Playing a clinic for the children of the Big Top on the 8th, then a gulf spill aid festival called WarehouseFest 2010, then closing out the month with Take the Lake festival on the 30th in Wilmington, NC.
4) My uncle – Bryan Adams – died last Thursday. He was a great man and supporter of the Dirty Bourbon River Show – if you remember back to our Kickstarter project last may – he was the largest of our donors – donating $667. Don’t ask how he came to that number; he was a wild, and incalculable man. A great American. Everything all rolled into one. Check the obit here.
RIP Uncle B.
