Buffalo, prepare to have you collective ass kicked on Sunday when two of the finest bands around alight upon the Town Ballroom for a show that is guaranteed to make your pits drip and your panties drop!
Old 97s open the show and just announced a new record (their 10th!) is arriving in early 2014....lead singer/songwriter Rhett Miller told Rolling Stone that the new record is going to be reckless and raunchy, which should quench the thirst of fans from the Good ol' Bloodshot Records days! I will also be speaking to bassist/co-leader Murry Hammond about this and everything else fit to be "hit by a train" very soon, so stay tuned for that!
More a force of nature than a band, the Drive-By Truckers are out in support of the recently re-released "Alabama Ass Whuppin'" and will no doubt leave the crowd a bedraggled mess by the time they leave the stage on Sunday. If you've never experienced the rock onslaught that is a DBT show, you are in for a real treat!
In anticipation (and perhaps to lube up and properly prepare yourself for the experience), here are a couple of clips that showcase the energy that can be expected by the combination of these two acts on one stage:
Old 97s w/ Exene Cervenka - Four Leaf Clover
Drive-By Truckers - People Who Died
