The Southern Thing

Attention, fellow north Alabamians: Drive-By Truckers are playing a hometown show in Muscle Shoals tonight. That's two shows in three nights for us, a true treat from one of my favorite bands. Doors open at 6, the show starts at 7.

At times, the Truckers have felt like strangers in their own hometown. Previous local performances have been few and far between, and crowd response has been spotty at best.

"We're determined to change that," vows H.L. Noah, principal of Muscle Shoals High School. "Muscle Shoals is known all over the world for its music, and we're trying to promote and celebrate that in our school system as much as we can. These guys are as good as it gets, and we want the local people to experience one of their shows."
