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!
Tonight the Dirty Bourbon River Show kicks off our Colorado tour in the beautiful mountain town of Gold Hill.
We drove straight up the dirt road side of a mountain and plunged straight into downtown. As we walked into the venue, a collective “Wahhh!” rang out amongst the band as we saw this hanging up behind the stage:
As it turns out, this town was not only home to, but was once presided over by a New Orleans music legend. That’s right, in the late 70s, New Orleans’ favorite washboard player was the mayor of a beautiful Colorado mountain town!
Washboard Chaz is a monster of a musician and a joy to be around, Dirty Bourbon has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with him and the Tin Men (our favorite trio ever) numerous times in New Orleans.
So come on out to the Gold Hill Inn and help us bring New Orleans back to Gold Hill, and pay tribute to our friend who’s hundreds of miles away! Show starts around 9:00 right in the middle of town at the historic Gold Hill Inn
Yes, that’s right folks. We’ve got a really big show coming up this Saturday, August 18th at Tipitina’s in New Orleans. Buy a pre-sale ticket to the show and we’ll email you 3 unreleased songs from our new upcoming LP The Most Peculiar Thing for free!!!
All you have to do is private message DBRS’s facebook page with your ticketweb confirmation # & your email, and we’ll send you some new tunage no one else but the band has heard before! Do it now! Offer will close once we’ve sent out too many mp3’s!
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.
We just couldn’t wait. We began allowing worldwide digital download of Volume Two tonight at 12:01 AM CST on dbrs.bandcamp.com
We priced the album – temporarily in this unannounced early interim period – at $20. We did this because the last one (Free Love) was completely free, and this new online bundle includes some sweet extra goodies ~ in addition to the full-quality download you get a special digisheet of the artwork, liner notes & lyrics + your choice of either:
(a) a spot on the guest list at our CD release party in New Orleans and a free, reserved, and autographed physical copy of the album waiting for you at the merch table that night
or, for you out-of-town-folks:
(b) an autographed copy mailed to your house free-of-charge on the day of the CD release party + a sticker and a personalized note from the band.
Ya, that’s a whole lot of stuff packed up in this sweet little baby:
Then, on April 2nd (Volume Two’s official release date) the album will drop to $9.99 for digital download (without the extra goodies) and will be available on iTunes and Amazon as well.
That night we will be performing our new album at the Blue Nile on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans. Musical guests will include:
Both of these bands are incredible, and we are extremely lucky to have them play with us.
This unprecedented 3 ring circus will start at 10pm and will be $10 at the door for those who did not pre-purchase the album. The Blue Nile only holds 300 people, so I’d grab your goodies and get your spot while they last.
For those in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Mobile, we’ve got shows in your town that weekend with Holy Ghost Tent Revival as well – check our sidebar.
Whether you live in or around New Orleans and plan on attending the live show, or you live somewhere else and plan on just listening to or downloading the album, we hope that you enjoy this new piece of art as much as we did making it.
We are extremely proud to bring these new sounds to your ears, and anxious for your feedback.
