Drive-By Truckers
@ L' Album de la Semaine, Canal+
Paris April 28th 2010 8:00PM
Setlist & drummer

Back at the famous Canal+ tv show L' Album de la Semaine to see , completely unknown over here, American band from Alabama ( and based in Georgia) Drive-By truckers.
It's their first time ever show in France, they've just arrived this morning and went straight to the recording studios for the sounscheck, they didn't even had the time to sightseeing.
Yesterday's recording with Foals was a real torture, this band sucks so bad.
Now it's time for some REAL rock'n roll.
Keys & Guitar/Vocals

Before coming to the show I've listened to 30 seconds of a couple of songs from Drive-by Truckers so I knew a bit what to expect.
In fact they're different from what I expected and... they were GREAT.
That's what I call ROCK'N ROLL with a southern feel.
Had a quick talk with a member of the audience , yeah baby , they're a heavier version of Tom Petty even though I don't think the band would agree with that.
Some people have labelled them Alternative country or Southern Rock , that could do but not entirely.
Guitar & Bass/Vocals

The musicianship is high , sound is neat and with 3 guitars they cannot be wrong, and they know how to use it specially the guy on the bottleneck ( Mr Red shirt above on the Pic).
They have a main singer ( below on the pic) but the other guitar player (in blue) and the female bass player are also singing lead.
Some laid back tunes , some heavier and even one boogie with some coool piano and Hammond organ ( played on a normal keyboard) on most of the songs.

Vocals/Guitar & Intruder from England

Too bad they only played 7 songs, they will be back in Europe in November
Can't fucking wait !!!

I don't regret not being @ Zénith for John Butler Trio & Robert Francis who I saw this afternoon playing live @ Virgin Megastore on the Champs Elysées.

Then we went to the Truskel to sse Anto Dust
