This week on the Music that Matters, we're featuring multi-night stands from Northwest greats!
The Drive-By Truckers are best known as a Southern rock band, but Patterson Hood has relocated to Portland, Oregon, so we'll claim him as a Northwest artist. These solo shows will be a rare chance to catch him up close and personal.
The Seattle group have announced they are calling it quits and wrapping up their farewell tour with a three night stand at The Showbox on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. They put out six full length albums, and a bunch of EPs, including this year's final release Fair Enough.
These two local bands have been teaming up for the annual Maldoggies Family Christmas for years. The Moondoggies are from Everett, and released A Love Sleeps Deep, their fourth album, this spring. Seattle band The Maldives released their fifth album, Mad Lives, last year.
Stone is wrapping up a tour with these two Seattle shows before kicking off an extensive tour of Australia and the US next spring and summer. He's releasing new singles presumably in the lead up to a new album on the way.
