The Southern rock band Drive By Truckers put out one of the most important and most politically pointed records of 2016. It was called simply American Band. There was nothing simple about the songwriting, which wrestled with issues like racism and inequality, and the fine line between honoring tradition – especially in the South – and using that tradition as an excuse to avoid confronting those issues. The progressive southern rock band plays tonight on Long Island at the Space in Westbury, and tomorrow night in NY at Webster Hall.
