DBT Week in Review - 1/22/10


New Drive-By Truckers - "This Fucking Job" (Stereogum Premiere) - MP3 - Stereogum


Still trying to catch up from the Athens excursion. I'll be editing my booty off this weekend to have stuff up next week. In the meantime....

Go to for all kinds of reviews, pics and video.

Here's to people who.....


Patterson Hood:
"No final tallies yet on the Nuci's Space fundraiser, but I'm suspecting it will end up in the $20,000 range. I will keep everyone posted as those figures come to me.
Thanks to everyone who bought tickets to the show and to everyone who came out to Nuci's Space and made bids on the fine art and memorabilia there. I'd also like to thank all of the artists who donated their wares to the cause.
Kudos to the Camp Amped Sampler Band that opened Thursdays benefit show. They were amazing. I look forward to seeing what each and every one of them do in the future."

Truckin' on: The Hoods share a legacy in music ||


The War On Pop: DBT's Return Home for Three-Night Stand: Drive-By Truckers at the 40 Watt (1/15/10):
"While the band played nine new tracks from The Big To Do as well as this tribute 7”, they also ensured that the hometown fans received more than their money’s worth, as they played an assortment of songs from across their catalog. Singers Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley alternated on lead vocals for fan favorites including “Three Dimes Down,” “Lookout Mountain” and “Women Without Whiskey,” providing the crowd with plenty a number to sing along with."


Nr. 29 - Drive-By Truckers: Southern Rock Opera |
"Efter udgivelsen af debuten Gangstabilly i 1998 stod det ikke ligefrem skrevet i stjernerne, at Drive-By Truckers skulle g�hen og blive et af de vigtigste amerikanske southern rock bands i nyere tid, men det er lige pr�cis hvad der er sket!"


DBT's documentary The Secret to a Happy Ending is being screened at the NoisePop festival in San Francisco. Woot!

Who Made You God? 1-14-2010 -
"The only thing hotter than the triple-digit temperatures at last year’s Coachella festival in Indio was the music produced by some of the event’s most potent artists. Few of them sizzled as much (or seemed as effortlessly cool) as Memphis soul legend Booker T., who performs Saturday at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. The results were so joyous and exuberant that it was difficult to determine who was beaming more, the sweat-drenched members of the audience or Booker T. and his band (which at Coachella just happened to be top Southern rock band Drive By Truckers)."

Blogger bags Big Music game -

"Meet the most influential man you've never heard of.

Bob Lefsetz, a 56-year-old blogger, is to music what Nikki Finke is to Hollywood -- a reclusive, sardonic writer who has the ear of every exec in the industry, but is little known and of little consequence outside of it.

Jackson Thriller film picked for U.S. registry | Reuters:
"The 14-minute 'Thriller' is among 25 films the Library of Congress on Wednesday named to the registry, and it became the first music video included in the 2009 list of cultural treasures that will be preserved for all time."

Top films of the decade:
"2. 25th Hour (2002): Spike Lee filmed this screen version of David Benioff's novel, about a New York drug dealer (Edward Norton) on his last day of freedom, just months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The first great 21st century film made about a 21st century subject, Lee's movie was a meditation on New York and America, and it captured for all time the spiritual misery and confusion that followed that tragedy. Misunderstood as just a pretty good movie in its time, it's an American masterpiece."

Decade in review: The 10 best TV shows:
"7. 'Slings and Arrows,' Sundance Channel. Three smart, funny, subtle and emotionally rewarding seasons made this Canadian series one of those rare finds worth seeking out. Set at a troubled Shakespearean theater company, the literate and witty story lines revolved around not only the performers and their backstage antics and offstage personalities but also the overwhelming transformative power of the Bard himself, played by people who really felt the words. A gem."

Nice to finally meet you, however briefly.
