Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit will play Turkey Hangover at Buckhead Theatre on Friday, November 23 (with The Wigs, Lera Lynn, and District Attorneys) immediately following the November 20 release of Live From Alabama.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (keyboardist Derry deBorja, bassist Jimbo Hart and drummer Chad Gamble) perform favorites from Isbell’s entire body of work, as well as a few nuggets, including a no-holds-barred rendition of Neil Young’s “Like A Hurricane.”
