Patterson Hood, Jan. 10, Knitting Factory 

Books that became albums

With his black glasses, bushy beard, tousled hair and a propensity for suit jackets over button-up oxford shirts, Patterson Hood looks more like an author than a rockstar. But Hood, the Athens, Ga.-based co-founder of and primary songwriter for rock band Drive-By Truckers, is both. In fact, according to Pitchfork, Hood's 2012 release Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance (ATO Records), was originally intended to be a book. And although he's in the middle of a solo tour, Hood won't have a lot of time to unpack before he'll have to head back out on the road with Drive-By Truckers behind the band's upcoming 12th release, English Oceans (ATO Records, March 2014), making it impossible to forget Hood definitely rocks.
