Dirty Bourbon River Show w/ The Royal Tinfoil

When: Tue., Aug. 16 2011

New Orleans combo Dirty Bourbon River Show calls themselves a "gypsy-folk-circus-rock band. Their exotic, carnivalesque stage show backs up the claim. The lineup features five skillful musicians who don't mind swapping instruments from time to time: Noah Adams (vocals, chordophones), Dane "Bootsy" Schindler (percussion), Big Charlie Skinner (vocals), Jimmy Williams (bass and tuba), and Matt Thomas (woodwinds). They first congregated in 2008, initially playing under the moniker Buck Johnson and the Hootenanny Kid. They eventually evolved into an audience-interactive revue, playing a mix of musical styles — from folk, blues, and jazz to Latin, gypsy, and the most eclectic elements of the New Orleans underground. They share the stage with eclectic local rock/roots combo the Royal Tinfoil (led by Lily and Mackie). 9 p.m.
