Drive-By Truckers, Megafaun

When: Thu., April 19, 9 p.m. 2012

For more than a decade, Drive-By Truckers have been the underground's finest rock band. Principal songwriters Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley excel at voicing the downtrodden and disinherited while weighing the priorities of moon landings versus social spending and lauding the poetry of falling ever farther without hitting bottom ("Gravity's Gone"). They're comparable to Springsteen thanks to the power of their working-class odes. In the past few years they've mediated the Replacements-lifted attack to explore soul, roots and boogie with less of the full-barreled three-guitar attack. Megafaun opens. —Chris Parker
