About a month ago, after learning that my favourite band was coming to Vancouver, I banged out a YouTube-driven blog titled 10 good reasons to go see the Drive-By Truckers this spring.
I figured that was a good way to consolidate 10 of my fave DBT tunes, something to listen to at work while I was working on non-DBT-related stories.
Well, now that I've played the crap out of all those clips, I reckon it's time for 10 more reasons to go see the Drive-By Truckers this spring.
(Again, I can't guarantee they'll play any of these tunes, but we can always hope. And I'm still not including any Jason Isbell tunes, 'cause far as I know he hasn't rejoined the band since my last batch of reasons.)
