Drive-By Truckers, 2016.
Anchored by the perceptive, piercing songwriting of Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, Drive-By Truckers have long been one of America’s best rock bands. They assume the mantle as perhaps the best with their 11th studio album, the 2016 release American Band, a directly political statement from a group that’s never shied from making a point. Their records are great, but they built their rep with intense live shows, so each visit is a cause for celebration. With Kyle Craft.
$35 ($30 adv.). Doors 6:30 pm.
