Between touring, backing up Booker T. on his Grammy-nominated album Potato Hole, releasing a live disc and a collection of b-sides and recording a new album, the Drive-By Truckers have been pretty damn busy.
Next week, the band releases its tenth album, its first on ATO Records, The Big To-Do, and after trekking across the country for the next few months, they'll hit the Boulder Theater on Thursday, May 13. General admission tickets are $30 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 13, the day after the band makes its debut on Late Show with David Letterman.
It's been a while since Henry Rollins has done much musically, as the former Black Flag frontman has been focusing more on spoken word tours. His Frequent Flyer tour hits the Boulder Theater Tuesday, May 18. General admission tickets, $31, go on sale Friday, March 12 at 10 a.m.
As the Red Rocks season continues to trickle in, three more shows were added this week: Crosby, Stills & Nash Wednesday, June 2; Gov't Mule with the Avett Brothers and Truth & Salvage Co,, Saturday, Sept. 4; and Styx, Foreigner and Kansas Sunday May 30.
