Southern rockers Drivin N Cryin screeched out of Atlanta in the mid-1980s but always had a rough ride with labels, in spite of being tapped to tour with R.E.M. and building a solid fan base. Its 2009 release Great American Bubble Factory had its own long road to travel: the band started recording in 2001. Tickets $15.
