- Drive-By Truckers singer-guitarist Patterson Hood will visit the Knitting Factory on Jan. 10, 2014. It’s a Friday night, so much beer will be consumed. Tickets go on sale Friday at TicketWeb. It’s been a while since the Truckers have visited Boise, but Hood, who is touring in support of a new album, “Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance,” says he’s digging the solo tour thing. Something tells me that Hood will not be driving around with me in Boise this time around.
- Despite its long-running relationship with Warner Bros. Records, indie-rock band Built To Spill has never been in much of a hurry to release albums. That doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. Frontman Doug Martsch says he thinks that the release of the Boise group’s next album “may be a couple of years down the road.” Built To Spill’s last album came out in 2009, so that would make it six years between records. Seems fine — even if it does jack up the “worth the wait” pressure a smidge. Or not.
- Also announced today: Los Angeles-based folk-rockers Dawes are headed to the Knit on Dec. 1. Tickets to that one go on sale Friday at TicketWeb.
