Just noticed that Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers will be playing a solo show on Oct 25th at Mercury Lounge. I saw them at Bowery play until the sun came up on New Years Eve last year, and was again blown away by them at Lollapalooza last month. I don't know what Patterson does solo, but I'm very excited to find out. No tickets on sale yet, but prolly soon.
Here's a solo track of his from last years New Years show (the night after I went, I believe), as well as my favorite Truckers song.
