    Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi are bringing the Tedeschi Trucks Band to the Moore on Sasquatch! eve, Thursday, May 26.
    Once upon a time, the Tedeschi Trucks Band would have been something Sasquatch! brass foamed at the mouth over. In its infancy, Sasquatch! was more granola than Grizzly Bear, more String Cheese Incident than Cold War Kids. And this husband-wife duo--the slide-guitar wunderkind from the Allman Brothers and the blues-singing siren--would have fit in like mold on unpasteurized cheese.

    Yes, the line between hippies and hipsters continues to blur, but the Trucks/Tedeschi duo does not have the hipster cache/potential of, say, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings--necessary to get through the festival gates. But they have all the chops, all the appeal, and are even more interesting. Trucks is unquestionably one of the most melodic players working today, and Tedeschi's pipes, while not possessing the retro appeal of Jones', are just as powerful.

    If you can handle adding a fifth night to your Sasquatch! break, make it this one.

    Tickets to the Tedeschi Trucks Band's May 26 show at the Moore go on sale Friday, April 15 via Tickets.com.
