Go-Go Boots Documentary Shows at Ciné During Athfest

The mini doc series, the Go-Go Boots Episodes, written and produced by Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers, directed by Jason Thrasher and edited by Eddie Whelan, follows the story of the making of the Truckers’ new record, Go-Go Boots (eight mini docs in all) as well as the musical history of Muscle Shoals and singer/songwriter Eddie Hinton. The Episodes will be screened twice this week at Ciné as part of the Athfest music festival in Athens, Georgia.

The screenings of the Go-Go Boots Episodes at Ciné are tonight at 730 and Sunday 6/26 at 530PM immediately followed by a Q and A by Jason Thrasher (Director) and Eddie Whelan (Editor) PLUS another Truckers rock doc, The Secret to a Happy Ending.

AND we have to throw this into today’s news… the Truckers played Letterman earlier this week and now fall into the extremely small number of bands EVER (maybe two?) asked to play a song twice on the same show because Letterman liked it so much– Eddie Hinton’s “Everybody Needs Love” as rocked by the Drive-By Truckers… check it OUT!
