Event Information
Patterson Hood & The Mystic Rumblers
with T. Hardy Morris
Saturday, Jun 8, 2013 8:00 PM
Doors open at 7:00 PM

Best known as leader of the Drive-By Truckers, songwriter Patterson Hood was born into a musical family, with his father David Hood, who will also be performing, serving as the longtime bassist for studio legends the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. Patterson began writing songs at the tender age of eight, and by the time he was 14 he was playing guitar in a local rock band. While attending college in 1985, he formed the band Adam's House Cat with his friend Mike Cooley, and the group won Musician Magazine's Best Unsigned Band competition three years later. However, the band's regional acclaim didn't translate into significant commercial success, and its sole full-length album was never released.

Throughout the bulk of the Drive-By Truckers' career, Hood also wrote music that didn't suit the band's muscular stomp. In 2004, Hood enlisted the help of producer David Barbe, who mastered the records before New West gave Killers and Stars a proper release. Hood returned to the solo game several years later with Murdering Oscar (And Other Love Songs), which found him partnering with his father for the first time on record. 2012 saw the release of Heat Lightning Rumbles In The Distance, a third solo album that enlisted the talents of all of his DBT bandmates. The album began as a novel about a particularly dark time in Hood's life, but when inspiration to write dried up, he shifted the themes of the book over to these songs.
