A politically conscious, unapologetically Southern rock and roll statement-piece in the vein of Drive-By Truckers’ Southern Rock Opera, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires’ 2014 Sub Pop debut, Dereconstructed, earned the fiery, hard-toiling Birmingham, AL band critical acclaim and a new legion of fans nationwide. The group, fronted by former Dexateens member Bains and featuring an all-star supporting cast, swings back through Athens Thursday to play the Caledonia with support from local act Five Eight, which will soon release a long-awaited double-LP, and T. Hardy Morris, who will perform a solo set of his twangy grunge-folk.
