DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS
8 p.m. Revolution. $22.

Man, it's shaping up to be a great year for fans of Americana and bluesy Southern rock in Central Arkansas. In the span of a month, Revolution hosts American Aquarium (Saturday), Bob Schneider (Feb. 2), Reckless Kelly (Feb. 8), Old 97s (Feb. 20) and North Mississippi Allstars (Feb. 23).

And Wednesday, arguably one of the best and most popular bands of the whole genre comes to Rev Room. By this point, The Drive-By Truckers are revered elder statesmen in the contemporary Southern rock scene. The band's extensive catalog of studio and live album is an embarrassment of riches, a remarkably consistent body of work that feels of a piece without feeling repetitious.

Band founders Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, along with former member Jason Isbell, have really carved out their own place in the Southern rock landscape, with great songwriting, unconventional subjects and a guitar sound that hits that total sweet spot of Neil Young-ian tone like few others.

Opening the show is Houndmouth.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
