    Excellent thread.

    I've seen the Truckers three times and Isbell's band once.

    All were fantastic.

    Just saw the Truckers Sunday night in Charlotte. Everything I had heard about them being amazing live was true.

    Good move by not using the UGA icon. Do not need those underachieving losers associated with the band.

    I remember the truckers opening for panic once in antioch. Isbell played a song with them and panic's bass player said "Jason Isbell....remember the name".

    Haven't heard it since then....til now

    Where have you been?

    Isbell is my favorite member/former member of the Truckers. They are simply not as good without him. To this day, I prefer Isbell shows more than Trucker shows sans Isbell.

    Does anyone know the full story as to why he left? I've heard he was much younger than the other members, joined later on, and wanted to have more input on their songs. All things considered he moved on. I am wondering if it was nasty behind the scenes.

    I'm starting to lose interest. Saw this DBT tour in Boulder, and they just don't have that ragged, hard partying, mainstream indifferent edge I used to enjoy. The new songs didn't make my want to buy the new album. The tour setlists are now more repetitive with fewer random gems thrown in. They're becoming a more commercial enterprise, which makes sense for guys with families, but the drunken, sloppy, incendiary sound that hooked me in is gone...at least the last few times I've seen them. They did put on some of the best shows I've seen, including their New Year's run of shows at amazing Fox Theater in Boulder. I'm sure people in the Southeast can catch their old form at clubs like the 40 Watt, but I haven't seen it for awhile.

    FYI, for those who don't know, you can download bootlegs of their shows from archive.org. Or, you can just listen on their site. Their pre-Dirt Underneath boots are some real gems.

    He's played at The White Mule a few times in the past year but I caught him at The House (formery Five Points Pub) right behind Yesterday's.


    He also did a kickass rendition of "Sitting On the Dock of The Bay" right before plowing into "Never Gonna Change." The guy puts on a fantastic show.

    Isbell and Cooley should form their own band. Patterson seems like a cool guy but he can't play guitar or sing as good as either of them.

    I have to agree they are hit and miss. Saw them in March in ATL and we left early because it was not a good show.

    and as someone mentioned, I'm pretty sure Isbell's situation had something to do with his ex-wife. users dawgonit and sticks are big DBT fans, they'll know more

    If anyone hasn't seen Patterson Hood live yet, I highly recommend. Basically a stripped down acoustic show with DBT songs and some of his own

    It comes out April 12th. I already have it :feelsgoodman:


    isbell played with DBT towards the end of the show in Huntsville. When he came out everyone went nuts and Patterson Hood jokingly told the crowd to "shut the fuck up".

    And SCRebel-Just listened to the whole CD all the way through, it's awesome. I really liked Assholes, Ray's Automatic Weapon, Cartoon Gold, and Used to be a Cop

    DBT on Jimmy Fallon tonight.

    Yea, the album is really great, people just have to give it a chance. Loved all of those songs the first few times I went through the album, now even the other songs, the ones I listed a post or two up, are what I'm liking now. Album's really well done.

    There's the dates for the tour. I saw some Bama and Louisiana dates, but I'm not sure of how far they are from you at Ole Miss.

    It ought to be a blast.
