Lights out

Posted By on Sat, Jun 26, 2010 at 2:32 PM

The Drive-by Truckers literally rocked the lights out last night at the Rev Room. About four or five songs into the set, all the power to the band's instruments shut down. The only thing left on were the microphones. After joking with the audience for a couple minutes and warning them to "not get all pissed off," the Truckers launched into an a cappella version of "Bulldozers and Dirt." It was one of those live music moments that the attendees will likely not forget, with the crowd and the band singing as one big, harmonizing voice. After a short break, the power came back to the amplifiers - but not the air conditioning - and the band soldiered through a sweat-soaked set including a number of tunes from their new album "The Big To-Do" and other crowd-pleasers like "Where the Devil Don't Stay." The crowd left drenched, but happy, after seeing one of the better rock shows to come through Little Rock since the last time the band was in town.
