The Dimmer Twins

Decatur, AL – On Friday, January 8, 2021, The Dimmer Twins, consisting of Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley of the Drive-By Truckers, will bring their country/rock sound to the Princess Theatre stage in a stripped down duo setting.

The name “Dimmer Twins” is a nod to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who are sometimes known as the “Glimmer Twins.” Hood and Cooley, both from the Muscle Shoals area, began their musical collaboration in the 1980s. In 1996, they formed The Drive-By Truckers, an alternative Southern Rock band known for politically progressive lyrics. The Dimmer Twins Princess Theatre show will feature original solo and duo material penned by Hood and Cooley, in addition to a few Drive-By Truckers’ songs the two have written.

General ticket sales begin on Friday, November 20, 2020 at 10 am CST. Please note that tickets are limited due to social distancing and safety protocols. Masks are required for entry to the Princess Theatre. On January 8th, doors open at 6 pm and the show begins at 7.
