Adam Raised Some Cains: Drive-By Truckers at the 9:30 Club

The best show I’ve seen in double-aught-eight thus far, and not by a little. So, so much better than shivering in front of Radiohead, the World’s Chilliest Band. (TM) That cover of “Adam Raised a Cain”? Just nuts. I only wish Shonna had sung one of her three fine tunes on the new record.
