This Saturday, Sept. 12, marks the appearance of venerable southern rock group Drive-By Truckers at the equally venerable Bluebird. The band, which has released ten albums throughout its 19-year career, is currently touring behind 2014’s well-received English Oceans. The album is quintessential Truckers: thoughtful, soulful southern rock music with a distinct Americana bent. And while their career has been fraught with lineup changes, particularly the departure of now-critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Jason Isbell, the band is currently in the midst of one of its most stable periods, spearheaded by founding members Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood.
Drive-By Truckers are known for their incendiary live performances, so you won’t want to miss this one.
The show is 21+. Tickets are $20. Doors open at 8pm. Blank Range is slated as the opening act.
