If David Lynch were to ever remake Blue Velvet with muppets, I'm pretty sure that this scene would be in the first act. I found this severed teddy bear ear in the parking lot as I was walking up to school this afternoon.
Next up was a supergroup billed as "Patterson Hood & Friends," which in reality was 3/5 of Drive-By Truckers with Dave Schools from Widespread Panic on bass. Joined by co-Truckers Jason Isbell on guitar and Brad "the EZB" Morgan on drums, they tore through solid Southern rockers "Sink Hole" and "The Day John Henry Died" before being joined by Marty Stuart on mandolin for "Heathens." Ex-Black Crowes guitarist Audley Freed emerged with a blistering solo on "Decoration Day" that led into a mountainous closing jam. Haynes then joined the fun for the set-closing heavy thump of "Lookout Mountain," adding screeching howls of sliding guitar into the Grand Canyon of deep grooves.
Paterson Hood, Jason Isbell, EZB, Dave Schools, Audley Freed and Warren Haynes all on stage at the same time? How's that for a Southern Thing? I'll be scouring bt.etree.org for FLACs of this one shortly.
