Drivin N Cryin Saturday, October 29. The Varsity. 9PM. $15. Tenacious Georgia rockers who would’ve become big instead of countrymen R.E.M. on an alternate timeline. 1991 single “Fly Me Courageous” remains one of the illest (sickest) songs ever, like a cross between Hendrix, Led Zep, & the Smithereens. The album of the same name has a striking art nouveau cover design. Overall, a Southern rock band with indie rock roots & tendencies.
