In what is possibly Athens’ most popular homespun tradition, the 40 Watt Club will once again be ceded for four nights to the raucous crowds of fans of the Drive-By Truckers. As is customary, the Truckers will share the stage with various locally affiliated acts. Mar. 29 kicks off with Model Citizen, the songwriting project of Truckers member Matt Patton. The next night will feature local hard rock band Hayride, Mar. 31 will be a special double feature with members of Nuçi’s Space’s Camp Amped and Mercyland, and the final night will open with up-and-coming indie rockers Wednesday. The band is called Wednesday; the show is a Saturday. Of course, each night will be bookended with hours of your DBT favorites.
