two nights of truckers

This may seem odd with March knocking at the door and all. But April is looking to be one seriously rocking month at Buster’s. The club will be hosting something fairly unprecedented in Lexington – specifically, a multi-night engagement featuring the modern and immensely literate Southern music of Drive-By Truckers. The band will set up shop at Buster’s for a full weekend on April 8 and 9.

A wildly prolific ensemble, the Truckers churn out deep, disturbing rural sagas at a clip that is almost too brisk for even ardent fans to keep up with. Sadly, Patterson Hood, Mike Cooley and the rest of the Truckers detoured past Lexington for several years as their fanbase began to expand in the mid ‘00s. A sold out Truckers date last year at Buster’s along with another in 2009 at the defunct Dame finally got the band back in town. The April engagement suggests we may have even become a regular tour stop.

The newest Truckers opus is Go-Go Boots, a typically dark but seriously rocking album that boasts such delicacies as Dancin’ Ricky, The Thanksgiving Filter, Ray’s Automatic Weapon and my personal favorite, the sleekly pensive has-been anthem Used to be a Cop.

Dylan Le Blanc will open both shows. Tickets for each performance are $25 in advance and $27 day-of-show. It goes without saying that band shuffles its set list from night to night, so die-hard fans can expect largely varying song repertoires during the Buster’s engagement.
