We here at SlackerCountry.com just updated our blog technology and noticed something interesting. See that tag cloud over on the right? The tag size is in proportion to how often we write about each artist and the Drive-By Trucker tag is suspiciously small.
This caused us to do some serious soul-searching because, really, we slackers (especially me and Gracey) are borderline obsessed with DBT and play them pretty much ALL THE TIME. We’ve all been to see them at least once (twice, three times) in the past year – basically anytime they are in the neighborhood. Much of Gracey’s conversation revolves around things she has read on the DBT fan board. . . . And then there is the whole problem of keeping Gracey from stalking the tour bus.
So yeah, we love the Drive-By Truckers. Then why, you may ask, is their tag so small? Uh, ‘cause we haven’t written that many reviews about them. Why is that? Uh, ‘cause I think we maybe tend to drink too much at their shows. Well, Gracey and Jitter do, anyway.
So there is that. We’ll try to do better though. In the meantime, if you get a chance to see them, make sure you go. And make sure you stand down in front where it’s really loud and you get the full rock show experience. But if you see a little person in a Cooley/Hood For President t-shirt jumping around in front of Cooley, keep a safe distance.
