DBT is playing this weekend in St. Louis, Kansas City and Little Rock.
We’ve mostly just played one-offs of late and we’re all looking forward to stretching out with multiple shows.
DBT shows have been fairly few of late as Cooley and I have been finishing up our solo touring and busy writing for next album.
It’s going to be a fun weekend.
Next weekend, I fly to Seattle to play a show with my Dad, David Hood.
This one-off will be our first time ever to play together on the west coast and will be a real treat.
The show (at The Triple Door) is in conjunction with the SIFF screening of the documentary film Muscle Shoals which tells the story of my Dad and his partners (and competitors) making some of the world’s finest records back in the 60’s and 70’s.
We are working up a special set just for this show and I highly urge you all to try to come out to it.
The following evening (May 31) I will be playing a very rare solo show in Portland at Mississippi Studios.
I plan to tell stories and play an overview of songs from DBT and my solo catalog.
In June, Mike Cooley and I both have solo tours. Check the DBT Shows page or my solo site for a complete listing.
This will probably be the last full tour I do for Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance.
We will kick off with two shows with The Mystic Rumblers (Dad, Brad and Jay) in Birmingham (opening for Alabama Shakes) and in Franklin TN.
I will be touring with Brad Morgan and Jay Gonzalez.
The tour will end with a special free show in Downtown Athens for Athfest on Sunday June 23.
For that show, I will be playing with the full extended band that I toured with last fall plus my Father.
MYSTIC DOWNTOWN RUMBLERS.
This will truly be a once only special show with 7 piece band and surprises.
On July 4th, The Dimmer Twins (Mike Cooley and I) will be playing at Standard Deluxe in Waverly AL.
This is a very special one-off in a very special place.
Keep an eye peeled toward www.drivebytruckers.com for upcoming information about the special reissue of Alabama Ass Whuppin’, our long out of print live album from 2000. Release date and info forthcoming.
I wish everyone a safe and fun summer and hope to see you out there somewhere.
