New Orleans-based band Dirty Bourbon River Show blends brings its circus-style sound to Gypsy Sally's tomorrow night.
Dec. 13: Dirty Bourbon River Show
Tomorrow night you can head to Gypsy Sally’s in Northwest to listen to Dirty Bourbon River Show, which describes itself as a “New Orleans Gypsy Brass Circus Rock” band. The quintet of multi-instrumentalists has released 7 studio albums since forming in 2009, including its most recent record, Volume Four. The band plans to make its 8th album, Accordion Anthology, available for digital download at the end of the month. It’s hard to describe Dirty Bourbon River Show’s sound, but try to imagine Gogol Bordello if you slowed it down a bit and swapped the punk element for an undercurrent of New Orleans jazz and circus music.
Dec. 12: The Dying Gaul
You can see The Dying Gaul, an ancient Roman sculpture being unveiled today at the National Gallery of Art. The first or second century statue is on loan from the Capitoline Museum and will be on view through March 16. It’s the work’s first time traveling outside of Italy in more than two centuries.
Music: “Jewish Girls Who Went to Art School Know All the Angles” by Dirty Bourbon River Show
