Drive-By Truckers
Visulite Theatre, Charlotte, NC

This time through town, the DBT‘s came to Charlotte for a two-night stop in support of their b-sides and rarities disc The Fine Print. The Truckers are a fine live band, and I like their old school, southern rock swagger. This show was maybe for more hardcore fans than I since I didn’t recognize a ton of songs (perhaps in the spirit of the b-sides and rarities disc). That, or they were spreading material out over the two nights (very likely, now that I think about it).

Still, they brought it to a sold out Visulite Theatre for almost two-and-a-half hours (with a brief 15 minute intermission) and no opening act. Really, it was a great night for any fans of the band – even if you are only familiar with a few albums as I am.

Next up: Possibly The Books on 9/23, which would be a third show in a row at Visulite
