Wolfman Posted January 2, 2011 Share Posted January 2, 2011 I had a blast last night in Philly as I saw for the first time the Drive-By Truckers at the TLA on 334 South Street. The TLA is a GREAT PLACE to see a show since it's the size of a small movie theater. I wasn't sure what I was going to see since other than a few youtube videos, I never really heard this band play. Thanks to Jahfin, I'm now a big fan. They are kinda of a heavy country band with lots of rock and roll mixed in. There are three guitarists, a female bassist (HOT), a keyboardist, and one bad-ass drummer. They came on around 9:15 and played till around 11:30pm. The music is great with lots of nice jams and solos. Two of the guitarists take turns singing lead. One of the guy's voices (Mike Cooley) reminds me of a young Johnny Cash. The other interesting part is how loud they could get from song to song.Btw, there was a great photo of Jimmy from the Spectrum in 1972 hanging on the wall of the bar there. The DBT rock. Make sure to check them out. Since I'm new to their music, I'm not sure what the setlist was last night but here is one from earlier in the month: 1. The Fourth Night of My Drinking 2. Where The Devil Don't Stay 3. This Fucking Job 4. Get Downtown 5. (It's Gonna Be) I Told You So 6. Tornadoes 7. A ghost to the most 8. My Sweet Annette 9. Love Like This 10. Feb14 11. Marry Me 12. Lookout Mountain 13. Birthday Boy 14. Drag the Lake Charlie 15. 3 Dimes Down 16. Hell No, I Ain't Happy 17. Gravity's Gone 18. Let There Be Rock 19. Uncle Frank 20. The Thanksgiving filter 21. Zip City 22. Everybody Needs Love Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
