Roots-rocker Will Hoge will stop by WTTS' Studio 92 on Monday, November 29 to play an acoustic set before he heads to the Murat for a show with the band Shinedown.

It will almost a year to the day of his Hoge's last appearance in Indy, for his 2009 tour-ending show at Radio Radio. (read review of show)

Last month, he released an EP titled The Living Room Sessions, a quickie album recorded in two days in Hoge's living room. It includes songs from his recent full-band effort The Wreckage, including alternate versions of "Even If It Breaks Your Heart" and "Favorite Waste of Time".

"I like acoustic recordings that try to be different from the album versions," Hoge told a reporter from the Charleston City Paper. "We didn't try 50 different arrangements or anything. It was really fun. It was a step closer to the 'you get what you get' mentality."


It has been less than a year since the Drive-By Truckers released The Big To-Do, and already have announced a February 15, 2011 release for their next record, titled Go-Go Boots. It will feature songs recorded during the same session.

"We recorded nearly 40 songs last year and into this year, and fairly early on divided it into two separate albums," said DBT frontman Patterson Hood in a news release. "The Big To-Do was the more straightforward rock album (and) Go-Go Boots is what I refer to as our country, soul and murder ballad album."
