Prepare for an understatement: Memphis musicians have thrown a few good parties. But still there ain’t no party like a Lord T. & Eloise party. Memphians can experience the absolute insanity of a Lord T. & Eloise live performance this Saturday, April 27th, as the local crunk rap duo records the show for their forthcoming live album, Live From the Bubble Bath. LAPD, Damp Velour, and DJ Leroy will also perform.

Ever the embodiment of decadence, Lord T. & Eloise plan to perform for the occasion, “all from the comfort of their bubble bath, which they will have delivered to the stage.” The self-styled "intergalactic time travelers" and "horsemen of the Rap-pocalypse" have dubbed the affair a “Bring-Your-Own-Bubbles” event, but, they say, “if you cannot acquire bubbles they will be provided for you.”

The proposed live album will feature seven new tracks from the Memphis rap duo, who have not released a new album for some time, though their Bandcamp page has sported the occasional single release. With the bubble bath bash, Lord T. & Eloise plan to debut such new songs as “Get Up,” “Double Dip,” “Palm Beach 2,” and “Harem.”

To accomplish the bubble-filled feat, Lord T. & Eloise have recruited a stirring stable of local talent, including the “newly expanded and enforced rhythm section ‘the aritocrunk sound system’ (Lord Sri Alpha, Teddie Roosevelt, Biggs Strings, DJ Witnesse),” says Lord T. Al Kapone, KingPin Skinny Pimp, and more are expected to make guest appearances.

When asked why a live album, Lord T. responds, “Well, everyone always says you just have to see us live. So we figured it’s high time everyone got to hear us that way.” Eloise adds, somewhat cryptically, “Tell them to listen up close. They might learn a little something about the way the world works.”

The duo, possessed of impressive vocabularies and unburdened by false modesty (or any
modesty at all, for that matter), claim their stated intent is to “literally break The Guinness Book of World Records for most bubbles at a live performance in human history.” Will they succeed? Turn up at Railgarten this Saturday to find out.
