Bilgemunky to DJ at PyrateCon!

I’m excited to announce that PyrateCon has invited me to do a little DJing this April. And what’s more, I’ll be doing so from smack in the middle of Bourbon Street! I’m not sure how many DJs (of any genre) can boast having done such a thing, but I’ll wager it’s not too many.

The final schedule TBA, but by the looks of things I’ll be doing two sets – one on Friday the 3rd and one on Saturday the 4th. So when you arrive in New Orleans (you ARE going to PyrateCon, aren’t you?) make sure to check your schedule so you can hang out with me and groove to the best mix of pirate and pirate-core music in existence! Lookin’ forward to seein’ you all there!!!

Oh, and if you’re not already familiar with PyrateCon, be sure and check it out at For two years running now the formula has been simple: New Orleans + pirates + rum = Greatest Weekend Ever. Don’t miss it!

    “New Orleans + pirates + rum = Greatest Weekend Ever”

    No one could say it better. Yaaaaar!

    Question: will you have a little pirate hat on the ground for tips? Might as well take the saps for all they will give. Being a pirate is great, isn’t it?

    Will you have any of this streamed through Bilgemunky Radio for people who can’t attend?

  4. The Quartermaster

    Red, don’t you ever pay attention between 6 and 9 pm on mondays? No podcast love for you lubbers! Mwuahaha!

    Not sure if Bilge the pirate master can work a PA and a laptop and STILL be able to record it all. Plus, he’ll be drunk. Don’t ask too much of the guy. lol

    Sorry – no live streaming. Live streaming of a party tends to present two primary problems. First, what’s suitable for the live crowd isn’t always what’s best for the radio crowd – those there prolly want to hear music, not live interviews of folks they’re standing right next to. But what’s more, the bandwidth issues can be forboding.

    That said, I WILL be posting DAILY reports on both Pyrate Week and PyrateCon activities during my entire stay in New Orleans – complete with pix 🙂

    Well…if yer not too busy, drop by and support any of the NOLA Pyrate Week events that will still be rolling…there be a huge Block Party to support the family of fallen NOPD Det. Tommie Felix on Sat. Apr. 4 from 1pm-8pm.
    FELIX FEST is sponsored by Bacardi Rum, The Avenue Pub and NOLA Pyrate Week in partnership with the NOPD.

    Several live bands, infamous local DJ, fire acts, trapeze artists, Pyrate magician, merchants, food rum and more…

    Have no fear, Capt. Swallow – Although it’s PyrateCon that’s hired me to DJ, I look mighty forward to patronizing both events, as well as any other pirate miscellania that occurs during that time in NO as well!

    Just keep your eyes open for yours truly, mates. You may find a drunk pirate wondering with no direction whatsoever. I may require direction and some kind words.

    And people to get hammered with is always a bonus.
