DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS

The live double album was a popular if critically maligned staple in the seventies, providing artists with an easy way to fulfill contracts and deliver red meat to a hungry fanbase. In 2016, a thirty-five song, five-record live set might seem crazy, but it makes sense for the Drive-By Truckers. In twenty years of continuous touring, the band has honed its songcraft and deepened its onstage alchemy. A Drive-By Truckers show is an immersive experience that alternates the righteous roar of rough-edged Southern rock with trudging builds and Patterson Hood's spoken narratives. Touring in support of It's Great to Be Alive!, which pulls from every era of the band's two decades, the band faces a challenge in having to cram so many good songs into two shows. They'll find a way. —David Klein
