Have seen Isbell and the 400 unit a bunch of times and last night at Whitewater here in central Texas was the most fun to date. Even though there was news of family tragedy the band was loose and isbell more animated than in past shows. If you like Rock n roll go see this band. Lots of guitar work to go along with the excellent song writing.

Been a loyal fan since the early 2000s when Jason was with the Truckers. Even coerced my wife into joining me as I've never had the opportunity to see him live in concert. Needless to say the show was amazing, deeply moving, and left us both wrung of emotion before we left the Performing Arts Center. The sound production and lightIng really added the the entire experience up front, but my pop music fan wife even purchased his album post- performance. It was a moving, soulful journey through the eyes and lyrical poetry of a man I can so very much relate with on a more personal level. The song choice and set list structure pefrctly mirrored an opera with movements and crescendo., Albeit, with the addition of new album tracks and lack of a handful of staples from yesteryear; Dress Blues, Goddamn Lonely Love and Decoration Day, Isbell gave an intimate and personal song choice closely resembling his life at present. Wonderful musicianship. Kindred fans. Americana. Perfection.

Wow! I have been a fan of Jason Isbell for years, since his days with the Drive- By Truckers. But, even continual listening of his last 3 records did not prepare me for how good he, and his band, are in concert. Clean, crisp sound. Sweet solos, lush violon. Great setlist. Warm rapport with the crowd. So glad my wife and daughter came along, and also enjoyed the show immensely.

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit have to be one of the best bands in the USA. Great musicians, everyone. Jason has done a good job of keeping this group together. Great variety of songs and moods in the set. Isbell continues to be one of the premier song writers of today. Killer rendition of Allman Brothers, "Whipping Post" closed the encore. Terrific stuff.

What a great voice. Excellent vocals and acoustic guitar. Put the electric guitar in the closet. Reverb was over the top in the theater, covering up instrumental and vocal.
