What's Your 10-20? Drive-By Truckers Coming to the Barrymore

The Drive-By Truckers are coming to the Barrymore Theater (Madison, Wi) on 10-20-07 .

DBT is a rock/alt-country/cowpunk (their website actually calls them a psychobilly band) band based in Athens, Georgia, though three out of five members (Mike Cooley, Patterson Hood, and Shonna Tucker) originally hail from The Shoals region of Northern Alabama. Their music is characteristically unique due to its “three axe attack,” or three guitars as well as bass and drums. Their lyrics often revolve around drifters and criminals trying to survive in economically-depressed small towns.

Last year the Truckers made it to Milwaukee and missed Madison...Don't miss this performance at a great venue. "My 10-20 will be the Barrymore on Oct 20."

On April 5th, 2007, Guitarist/Singer Jason Isbell announced that he was no longer a member of the band. The following day, Patterson Hood (lead singer/guitarist) confirmed the break on the official site. In his letter to the fans, Hood described the parting of ways as "amicable" and expressed the hope that fans would continue to support Drive-By Truckers as well as Jason's solo efforts. Jason Isbell has now departed from the band but will be in our neck of the woods on Friday, July 27th at the The Terrace (FREE SHOW).

Be sure to check out Jason's new strong solo release, Sirens of the Ditch.

Rockin' some Springsteen and Thin Lizzy, not to mention all of his own great songs, this was a great show. The rhythm section put down some heavy grooves and Jason and the other fellas just cruised along on top of it. I'll be sure to check them out again!
