Patterson Hood creates rock albums with friends under the band name Drive-By Truckers. The albums are fashioned like low-budget films, filled with carefully told, fiercely rendered short subjects and cinematic songs. Friday, July 23. Doors at 8 p.m. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V St. NW. Tickets are $30. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com.
