I finally righted a wrong and saw the Drive by Truckers live. Two night run at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC on March 17th and 18th. It was just as I had hoped and quite the rock show both nights. Crowd was lighter than expected on Thursday for St. Patrick’s Day and Franklin Street was a ghost town after the show as well. Held during spring break was probably a major root cause for the lack of rowdy afterwards in town.
Both nights were 3 hour shows and the encores did not start until after midnite. Cooley was killing it on his guitar solos and was playing better than I have heard him before. For my first DBT show I was not disappointed at all and high expectations. Will definitely make a point to see them many times again.
