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.

Drive-By Truckers @ Stubb's
Drive-By Truckers

Last Wednesday, I fell down and cut my hand.
Fifteen stitches in my left palm.
Wish I had a cool story, but I don't.
The movie version would have me getting cut by a bottle of rot-gut whiskey in a bar fight.
No doubt defending the honor of someone or another.
My heroics bookended by a scene of me carrying my hand for reattachment by a disgraced former surgeon in the back of a grimy tattoo shop because lack of insurance would preclude being seen by a real doctor.
I would be brave and not cry or complain.

Hurling would be out of the question.

Ahh, the movie version.

Unfortunately, the truth is kind of tame, lame even.
I was picking my daughter up at first grade, carrying a bottle of water.
I tripped and fell (in front of her entire class).
I fell, shattering the glass which I then duly landed upon, pushing shards up into my hand.
My fucking left hand.
Fifteen stitches in my palm.
No biggie. No cut tendons or damaged muscle. Missed that artery (bled like a stuck pig though).
Hurts like hell, but it won't long and I will be as good as new in a month or less.
Unfortunately, I can't play guitar for a few weeks and we have a tour beginning this week.

In the words of Three Dog Night, "The show must go on".
My friend Kevin told me, as I was bleeding all over the playground, awaiting my ride to the Emergency Room, "You guys have too many guitar players anyway."
Nonetheless, to insure everyone's Premium Rock and Roll Experience, we have recruited our friend Will Johnson, from Centro-matic to fill in on guitar, covering the SG through a Fender Vibro-King parts.
I will be in full front man mode, on other words, it's dancing shoes time.
I always wanted to be Phil Mogg, and for the next couple of weeks...

We only have Will Johnson through New Orleans, then we will have to improvise, but that's one of the things we do best, so STAY TUNED.

So come out to this, hopefully once in a lifetime DBT Show.
We guarantee you a great time and a Premiere Go-Go Extravaganza that you'll be telling your Grandkids about (maybe sooner than later).

Oh and Bob, the 9th is my son's birthday and it's GO TIME.

Long Live Rock and Roll and Country Soul.
Captain Hook
(Patterson Hood)
(or is it Dr. Hook?)

An injured Drive By Truckers played a headlining show at Stubb's in Austin on 9/1 with Will Johnson on guitar and with Will Johnson's band Centro-Matic opening. The New Orleans date has now also passed, but the show goes on and DBT continue their tour on 9/7 in Tuscaloosa AL (a benefit for tornado relief).

The current trek never comes east, but in October DBT play a string of shows with Those Darlins not long after Those Darlins play The Bell House in Brooklyn with The Beets and Brothers. Tickets are still on sale for that show. Centro-Matic play MusicFestNW this coming weekend in Portland.

All dates and more pictures from the Austin show, below...

The show at Pianos tonight is a release party for Roadside Graves' new You Won't Be Happy with Me EP. Their Aquarium Drunkard labelmate Blair is also on the bill.

Blair started her career in New Orleans, moved to L.A. and now lives in Brooklyn. Aquariam Drunkard says this about her debut, Die Young:

Musically Blair echoes the early days of Liz Phair in the minimalist structure of some of her songs. It's an interesting comparison to make, but it makes sense also as she came of age in Phair's peak as a musician. Within this structure though are moments as scattered and diverse as the Southern shuffle of "Wake Up Shake Up," the girl group shimmy of "Paris France" and the closely cropped haze of "Rampage." The title track even follows the loping, punctuated delivery of Suicaine Gratifaction-era Paul Westerberg. Die Young never abandons its tone and the album keeps a cohesive feel. It always seems to be going somewhere, even if the destination is as uncertain as the lyrics' narrator.
Baby Dee's show at Santos tonight comes after the release of the newly produced A Book of Songs for Anne Marie, which came out March 23rd on Drag City. Little Annie & Paul Wallfisch are also on the bill.

Asobi Seksu perform at Japan Society (333 E 47th St) as part of a 12-hour Open House titled j-CATION. Their show, with opener Me & Mars, starts at 9:30. Tickets will be released first-come, first-served starting at 8pm, and admission to the show is included in the $5 suggested donation for the fest.

Washed Out and Small Black end their tour together with one more NYC show, this time at MHOW. They started the tour with two shows at Mercury Lounge.

White Mystery are featured this week in This Week in Indie (as are The Wedding Present who play Maxwell's tonight).

Sam Amidon and Doveman join forces once again at 92YTribeca tonight. It's a record release party for Sam who we recently interviewed. Video from the Big Ears Fest below.

BrooklynVegen Presents, as BBG said, "a killer four band bill of Weedeater, The Gates of Slumber, Black Tusk, and Struck By Lightning who will lay waste to The Studio at Webster Hall."
