Oh sweet mother of God. Two of my favorite bands of all time have come together and announced a tour so great that my head will explode at the mere thought of witnessing it live. Sorta like this.

The Drive-By Truckers are pleased to announce a 23-date co-headlining tour with their friends The Hold Steady. The bands will alternate who closes the shows throughout the tour, pre-sale begins Tuesday, August 19 and the public on-sale starts Friday, August 22.

The Rock and Roll Means Well tour will be at the Crystal Ballroom on the 22nd of November, but I think I'm just going to quit my job and follow it around the country. Who's with me? We can sell peanut and jelly sandwiches in the parking lot and play foot bag until our sandals fall off.
