The week’s best Madison show announcements.

The week’s best Madison show announcements.

Drive-By Truckers, fresh off a run of shows where they opened for Alabama Shakes for some reason, return to Madison on November 15 at the Majestic. Their ambitious catalog and Patterson Hood’s big sloppy grin still make them one of our favorite live bands. Info/tickets

Phox‘s next big hometown show is November 7 at the Capitol Theater, but it’s equally worth noting that Madison-formed instrumental rock band Cougar will be opening up. Cougar’s members are currently spread all over the country, though drummer David Henzie-Skogen (also of Youngblood Brass Band) is still in Madison. This will be the first time they’ve played live in a good while, and they’re working on a third album, which will be their first since 2009’s Ninja Tune release PatriotInfo/tickets
