8:30 p.m., Revolution. $25.

What a coup for Chris King at Revolution. The Drive-By Truckers may've come to town years back, but not since they emerged as one of the most respected rock 'n' roll acts around. Since 2001's “Southern Rock Opera,” a brilliant concept album that explores what singer/guitarist Patterson Hood calls “the duality of the South,” the band's released an unbroken string of literate, widely acclaimed albums built around a formula that's bound to translate well to the stage — three decidedly different vocalists rotate lead duties while three guitars propel everything along. Expect super-fans, possibly including Little Rock's Ray McKinnon, to be singing along. His Oscar-winning film “The Accountant” apparently inspired “Sink Hole” from “Decoration Day.” In the opening slot, Austin's James McMurtry (son of novelist Larry McMurtry) specializes in literate country-rock that often delves into the political.
