Smart Bets: Patterson Hood

Patterson Hood (of the Drive-By Truckers) says, in his bio, that he likes writing on the road, though it's hard to finish songs amid the distractions. So, he decided to write a book (which was to be called Slam Dancing in the Pews). But, in the process of writing that, he ended up writing an album (last fall's Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance). The album features Hood's dad, David (a session player for the likes of Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon and Willie Nelson). Hood plays a two-night stand at The Grey Eagle, Thursday and Friday, Feb. 14 and 15. 9 p.m., $15. Dylan LeBlanc opens.
