Concert Announcement: Drive-By Truckers

10/17/07 Granada, Lawrence

As most of you probably know by now Jason Isbell, one-third of the 3 headed Rock 'N Roll beast known as the Drive-By Truckers, is no longer in the band. I was sorely dissapointed when I heard the news but I was able to dilude myself into thinking that a Jason Isbell solo album would give me more time alone with my favorite songwriter of the three. Jason's debut album, Sirens of the Ditch, is a lot better than I expected after first checking out some samples on his Myspace and he will be playing The Bottleneck on August 11th with Centro-matic.

The Drive-By Truckers have replaced Jason with original member John Neff. Neff has played on four DBT albums already and will contribute both guitar and pedal steel.

Concert Announcement: Oakley Hall

9/30/07 Jackpot Saloon, Lawrence

On September 30th Oakley Hall will make another trip through Lawrence to play at the Jackpot Saloon. The last time they were in town was at an in-store performance for Kief's Downtown Music in the afternoon before their opening slot for Calexico. While quite an impressive show, I am looking forward to seeing them headline (especially at one of my favorite venues).
