Jason Isbell Reunites with Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley for Benefit Show

Jason Isbell reunited with his former Drive-By Truckers bandmates Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley for a special show—billed as “One Night Only for Terry Pace”—at the Shoals Theater in Florence, AL on Sunday night. The gig was a benefit for their good friend, University of North Alabama professor Terry Pace, who suffered two strokes in March.

The trio worked through a 25-song, career-spanning acoustic set that featured tracks from 1998’s Gangstabilly, 2001’s Southern Rock Opera, 2003’s Decoration Day, 2004’s The Dirty South, 2006’s A Blessing and a Curse, 2008’s Brighter Than Creation’s Dark, 2010’s The Big To-Do and 2011’s Go-Go Boots. The show marked Isbell’s first performance with Hood and Cooley since he joined Drive-By Truckers on stage during 2011 show at Huntsville, AL’s now defunct Crossroads Cafe, though he parted ways with the band in 2007.

Fine by me it took them a week. I didn’t see your report on it.

old news, there were a lot of reports on it anyway. But, the last horse crosses the finish line as usual.

Exactly. The. Thing. That. Makes. This. Forum. So. Insipid. Yo peachfuzzface, it’s not like the DJ doesn’t have a life and can peruse the various wanksits looking for breaking news. If not for this post, never would have gotten the lowdown. Choke on your stopwatches and climb out of mommy’s basement (perhaps join D the S on a Juggalo roadtrip) and PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP.. DJ
