Mad props to Drive-By Truckers for making an opera out of Southern-fried rock, and for backing up Booker T. Jones (playing at Triple Door two nights earlier). The Truckers’ latest album, American Band, finds the flag at what looks like, from the cover, half-mast. They love their country, but they don’t like what they see—and what they see is Big Orange dissolving into the amber waves of grain like toxic waste, until we just plain take him for granted and stop talking about the poison. Or at least take it for granted. And they’re American mad about that.
