Drive-By Truckers | Fox Theater | 3/10/12 | Review & Photos

The Drive-By Truckers don’t play mediocre live shows. It’s pretty much a guarantee that any given audience in any given city is set to have their collective mind blown as they sit in a jam-packed theater, watching the techs set up the mics and guitars and set out the signature bottles of Jack Daniels and Patron on their respective stations on the stage. It’s a sure bet on ticket-money well spent—assuming you’re a fan of ass-kicking southern rock and roll.

WhiteWater Ramble | Fox Theatre | 2/21/12

The night is young around midnight; the music loud, beads and balloons reflect the Mardi Gras aura at Fox Theatre with WhiteWater Ramble. The show, much like their music, is unpredictable to say the least. The evening consists of staple WhiteWater tunes, a few Mardi Gras classics, an always-packed stage of welcome accompaniments, and a crowd as wild as the performers.

Poor Man's Whiskey Shine on the Fox with their Dark Side of the Moonshine

Opening up the show, the band Onward, Soldiers, fresh off recording their sophomore LP, Monsters, started us off with a tight performance that sourced heavily from their new album.  Rapidly collecting fans and critical attention, this young band from North Carolina gave concertgoers reason to jump on the bandwagon.  According to lead singer Sean Thomas Gerard, “We’ve been a band for three years, but only two years with the current members.”  Despite that fact,
