DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS

Anthens, Georgia-based band Drive-by Truckers is back out on the road, and will perform at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in  Lafayette on Nov. 21.

The Acadiana Center for the Arts has landed Drive-By Truckers.

The southern rock/alternative country band will make its Lafayette stop on Sunday, Nov. 21, for a 7:30 p.m. standing-room concert in AcA's Moncus Theater, 101 W. Vermilion St.

Special guest is folk/blues guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Carl “Buffalo” Nichols. Tickets are on sale and start at $45 at acadianacenterforthearts.org

Based in Athens, Georgia, the group formed in 1996. "The Unraveling," Truckers' 12th studio album, was released Jan. 31, 2020. Just eight months later, the band dropped its 13th record, "The New OK."

"As we prepare to head back out on the road, the health and safety of the DBT band, crew, and our fans is of the utmost importance to us," a note on the Truckers' website says. "Our band and crew are all vaccinated and will be adhering to strict protocols to ensure that we are doing our best to keep everyone healthy and safe— including ourselves, the venue staff, our fans and their extended communities.

"We strongly encourage everyone coming to our shows to be vaccinated and be masked as much as possible," the note continues. "We are very excited to be playing shows again and thank you all in advance for doing your part to make shows safe and sustainable for our industry."
