Man, oh, man! What a show. Unfortunately, I’ve only had to hear about what a great night of music last week’s Drive By Truckers / Centro-matic show was, as I was out of town. Thankfully, our man-on-the-scene David Heidle was not only in-town, but all over the Granada Theater in Dallas.
Opening the show was Texas favorites Centro-matic, who have been friends with DBT for years. That friendship showed, as Centro leader (and wonderfully wooley-bearded) Will Johnson played guitar for the Truckers during their set, due to lead Trucker Patterson hood’s playing hand being stitched up after a nasty cut.
You don’t have to just assume that this was a show worth catching, Noah from the Dallas Observer thought it was pretty special, too. Heidle was able to make his way through the sold-out crowd to snap up some mighty fine pics.
