Three nights of DBT has left a lot of people in Athens with bags under their eyes and hoarse voices. All three shows were very different, each incredible in their own way. Everyone at Nuçi’s Space had a great time - our pre-party/auction went really well over at Cine on Thursday. Then right before the Truckers went on Rebecca Hood, Alyssa Bernstein and I auctioned off Shonna's (quite badass) First Act bass, Patterson's Epiphone acoustic guitar and an amazing Wes Freed original painting. The Truckers are so good to us ... and we love them for it.
Here's some various accounts of the night:
* SPIN magazine: It happened Last Night.
