Drive-By Truckers set for two-night stint in Asheville (8/17/2012)

DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS It’s a bit of a drive, but with residency comes variety. Drive-By Truckers are checking in for a two-night stint at Asheville’s Orange Peel that’s sure to showcase the Southern rock/alt-country of the band’s nine studio albums, including recent releases The Big To-Do and Go-Go Boots. Though based out of Athens, Ga., singer, guitarist and master Southern storyteller Patterson Hood hasn’t forgotten any of his Muscle Shoals roots, working in bits of gritty soul wherever he can. The lineup has withstood plenty of speed bumps — the latest was the departure of long-time bassist Shonna Tucker — but the band soldiers on without hindrance (though probably without her songs). I’d say the new arrangement is only now starting to settle in, but the Truckers’ music has been settling in for quite a while now. $25-$30. Aug. 17, 9 p.m. Orange Peel, 101 Biltmore Ave., Asheville. (828) 225-5851.
