The Drive-By Truckers sold out the Pageant on Saturday night, on tour with their twelfth album "English Oceans."

Hailing from Athens, Ga., cofounders and longtime friends Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley played together in several bands, including the duo “Virgil Kane." In 1998, the Drive-By Truckers debuted with the release of the album “Gangstabilly.”

Current band mates include drummer Brad Morgan, the always-grinning bassist Matt Patton and multi-instrumental Jay Gonzalez, who has been with the band since 2008.

A jagged melancholy seeps out of this album, as it did from the stage, with the band digging deeper into their muddied roots.  There is a doggedness to Drive By Truckers, a band that has attained authority in the raucous world of southern alternative rock.

Experimental country and folk band Blitzen Trapper opened the show.
