Drive-By Truckers, The Whigs

When: Tue., March 5, 8 p.m. 2013

During the last decade or so, one musical gift of living in the Southeast has been the vantage it's provided to watch the ascent of the Drive-by Truckers. Though Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood have been painting guitar-embossed pictures of bad men and romantic women, poignant protagonists and tyrannical politicians for nearly two decades, their national star took its time to rise. The Triangle—a quick drive from their homebase in Athens—has served as a secondary incubator for the Truckers, a band that turns the specters and stereotypes of Southern rock into dozens of reasons to believe in family, friends and electric guitars. —Grayson Currin
