Wednesday To-Do: Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit

Posted By on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 at 11:45 AM


9 p.m., Revolution. $25 adv., $30 d.o.s. $10.

What a week to be a Drive-By Truckers fan, huh? The alt-country mega act plays Revolution's anniversary show on Friday and the Wednesday before sees Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, another beloved outfit fronted by a former Trucker who wrote and played along with the guys for six years and on three near-universally acclaimed albums. Hailing from one of America's greatest unsung musical hubs, Muscle Shoals, Ala., Isbell and his Unit work in a mural of country-soul, replete with broken-heart-on-beer-soaked-sleeve lyrics and masculine melancholy in a paced, but driving, update on the most lovelorn moments of classic country. If you've ever wanted to see someone hide the tears in his eyes with his cowboy hat, here's your chance.
