Drive-By Truckers leaders Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley will play several shows without their trusty backing band in April and May. The Dimmer Twins, named in homage to Glimmer Twins Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, will have a wealth of solo material and Truckers favorites between them to flesh out their setlists.
Hood and Cooley’s trek begins with an April 11th performance at Savannah Music Festival in Georgia, with subsequent shows scheduled through May 18th. The pair will play back-to-back nights at Asheville, North Carolina’s Grey Eagle; Seattle’s Tractor Tavern; and Los Angeles’ famed Largo. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, January 18th.

This tour will follow the Drive-By Truckers’ current itinerary, co-headlining a handful of dates with Lucinda Williams and rocking aboard the Outlaw Country Cruise ahead of a four-night residency at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia in mid-February. One of those 40 Watt shows is billed as Adam’s House Cat, Hood and Cooley’s Eighties-era band from Athens that pre-dates the Truckers, and whose long lost album Town Burned Down was released in September 2018. The Truckers released their latest album American Band, a searing look at racism and privilege in the U.S., in September 2016.
