First and foremost I want to say Thank you to The Blue Note for always running fun promotional contests via social media. Which is how I won these tickets to attend this awesome show. Do yourself a favor and go follow them, like them and LOVE them now and you can be the next winner.
I found out I won these about 6:30 day of show. Its a 90 mile drive to Columbia, well worth it. Columbia rocks.
We grabbed some beers at the upstairs bar and sat up in the balcony.
The Blue Note is awesome you can see the stage perfect from anywhere. Its a older style theather so the acoustics sound amazing too.
Something just makes you feel good when I listen to Drive By Truckers and its very contagious. Everyone was feeling pretty good from what I could see.
They rocked through song after song, with a few patron breaks in between. Only stopping for a brief intermission before coming back for a lengthy encore.
They came back refreshed and ready for round two. So was the crowd, gave us all time to hit the bar for one last drink.
They are on tour promoting ” English Oceans ” which came out March 04 2014 on ATO Records. Great record, you should check it out at your local independent music shop!
I am really happy I got to see this show, Thanks again Blue Note for picking me.
Thank you to Drive By Truckers for showing Columbia, MO love and playing The Blue Note on The English Oceans Tour 2014. It was a pleasure to come out and rock with you for a evening. Lets do this again next tour.
Till Next Time………
