Drivin' N Cryin' return to town in advance of a new album at the Veranda Live


Back in Orlando for a tour supporting their upcoming album, Live the Love Beautiful, Drivin’ N Cryin’ – the self-proclaimed “DIY icons of American underground” – are still at it after more than 30 years of Southern rockin’. Though they’ve been a somewhat regular presence in the City Beautiful over the years, it’s the band’s first full-length album since 2009, when they released their “working-class rock opera” Whatever Happened to the Great American Bubble Factory. They’ve still got what it takes to throw a hell of a show – see for yourself when they roll through the Veranda Live this weekend.
