2 NIGHTS OF WILD NEW ORLEANS FUN!!
FEATURING MICHAEL HURTT AND THE NEW ORLEANS NIGHT

Allons Rock ’n’ Roll!! Known under various murky monikers from the King Creoles to the Swamp Shackers and most especially the New Orleans Night Howlers, Michael Hurtt and his merry gang of Mardi Gras music makers are finally venturing outside of New Orleans — and Carnival Season — to lay their Route 90 sound on you. After years of backing their heroes at countless Ponderosas Stomps, the boys have come up with a style rarely heard beyond that mystical, musical highway that connects the swamplands of South Louisiana to the dance halls of San Antonio: these are songs sung in a heartbreak key and played with a bayou backbeat; tunes with a hint of French Quarter Dixie cut with heaping helpings of St. Roch grease and Creole rhythm and blues; that Ninth Ward rumble that Crescent City bandleader Dave Bartholomew once so succinctly dubbed “Alley Music.”

After a decade of Carnival parades, three cypress floats that rolled until the wheels wore off and a fraternity of Gulf Coat runnin’ partners that began with legendary Southern guitar slingers Jason Goodman and Jimbo Mathus and came to include various Royal Pendletons, Haunted Hearts and Rosaries, this careening cacophony of Congo Mambo, Cubano Jump and Cajun rock ’n’ roll has finally whittled itself down to its leanest and meanest: the twin guitar attack of Hurtt and Mitch Palmer, the pounding piano of James “Junko” Jordan and the effortless rhythm of Roman Aul and Tommy Oliver. Hurtt and Palmer are also co-founders of the Alligator Chomp Chomp Dance Party — itself a dyed-in-the-wool inspiration for the band’s set list — and will join DJ Matty on the turntables for their eminent Memorial Day weekend invasion of Memphis “Rave On” Tennessee!!

BAR DKDC

Contrived by fellow Smiths/Morrissey fans, Louder Than Bombs evolved when a couple of Memphis musicians insisted upon a collaboration.

The idea was to produce songs which were always instantaneous and listenable whilst also provoking deep thought; emulating Morrissey's vocals with Marr's music in a sound which, above all, would stand apart without being inaccessible or esoteric. The guitar-based songs would blend melody without havoc, as the words - born out of absolute physical necessity - would tug at the strape of cultural straightjackets. Christened as an antidote of a prevalent idea that modern groups would need only far-reaching, multi-syllable name, to authorise their artistry.

As a live group, Louder Than Bombs believe that it is possible to replenish appetites of both the soul and the pelvis simultaneously. They are urban, but never bleak; there is humor in tragedy, solace and unity. The voice is the collective rage of all suppressed hysterica.

Always Memphis-based, Louder Than Bombs contend that 'One has to live somewhere....' and plan to rewrite the history of their city.

My latest album 'Begin the Glimmer' was chosen by The Flyer as one of the Best Memphis Albums of 2018, saying "It sports one perfectly crafted tune after another; the end result is a shimmering folk-pop gem that leaps from the speakers."

More recently, I release an EP called 'Songs of Shane, Vol. 1'. Inspired by my love for the work of Shane MacGowan and the music he made with The Pogues and The Popes. I made a video too...

ABOUT

DKDC

At BAR DKDC, we’ve paired Chef Karen Carrier’s eclectic tastes with the essence of local cuisines — international street food. The soul of the street, Our menu of small plates reads like an global backpacker’s food diary. Oaxacan Mexican to Shashlik from Israel. Spanish Tapas to the spices of the Caribbean. Plus, we change it up every five weeks. Relax in our intimate space with textiles from India, masks from Cuernavaca and Taxco, furnishings from our own Southern Delta, and music from all of the above.

Order a cocktail that matches the mood and travel with us.

It was a chance encounter in the restroom of a trendy New York City Bar. A struggling art student mentioned her love of cooking and lack of money. The other woman was a caterer in need of workers. The two exchanged names and Chef Karen Carrier never returned to graduate school. Instead she has enjoyed a varied career in food and has never regretted her decision to swap palette for palate.

Like all good southerners, she eventually returned home to Memphis in 1987 to start a family and plant the seeds for a restaurant empire.

KAREN CARRIER

Carrier launched Another Roadside Attraction Catering, the stunning revival of downtown Memphis with Automatic Slims Tonga Club (which she sold in 2008), The Beauty Shop Restaurant, Do Sushi, Noodle Doodle do, The Mollie Fontaine Lounge and her newest venture—Bar-DKDC Social Club.

Critics have applied descriptors like daring, exuberant, eclectic and risk-taking to her restaurant ventures – words that apply equally well to the fanciful fusion food, the funky décor and chef—owner Karen Carrier. Her ambitious cooking combines big Southern and international flavors—it’s what Food & Wine described as “in your face” cooking: imaginative, well-prepared, and full of surprises.
