Drive by Truckers / The Hold Steady @ The Paramount, 6/28/2014
Drive-By Truckers
The Hold Steady

"Throughout the evening, there was a striking contrast between frontmen Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley. Hood, who often leaped into the air mid-song, overflowed with emotion as he performed signature tunes like "Box of Spiders" and "Hell No, I Ain't Happy." On the opposite end of the stage, straight man Mike Cooley was a study in detached cool. From the moment he strapped on his black Flying V and launched into the hard bitten lyrics of "Birthday Boy," Cooley's mellow, sardonic attitude oozed from every pore." - [Elmore Magazine]
The separate, ongoing tours of Drive-By Truckers and The Hold Steady converged with two shows in the NY area, first at Asbury Park, NJ's Stone Pony (6/27) then Long Island's The Paramount Theatre (6/28). Both bands have been touring in support of new albums, and they each played sets that highlighted the new stuff while also drawing from much of their enviably vast back-catalogues of material. The two modern rock'n'roll institutions even joined forces for an encore at The Paramount, where they covered Bruce Springsteen ("Adam Raised a Cain"), Neil Young ("Rockin' in the Free World"), and The Jim Carroll Band ("People Who Died").

Check out more pictures from the show, setlists for both bands, and video of that collaborative "Rockin'" encore.
