Ah, September. A chill is in the air, and like salmon, the Old 97’s now make their way upstream back to Texas to molt and spawn.
OK, bad analogy. The only salmon that show up in Texas do so rolled in seaweed and rice, or packed in a can. And I’m pretty sure no molting is in the offing, and the spawning’s in the Spring. Oh well. BUT, 97’s-related shows are filling in the calendar nicely, thank you. The latest? Murry Mr. Hammond and his lovely and talented bride, Grey DeLisle, take the stage at Dallas’ All Good Cafe, TONIGHT, September 18, while the Old 97’s themselves take the stage at Antone’s, ACL Fest, and Sons of Hermann Hall on September 19, 20, and 21, respectively; and with the Ranchero Brothers and Murry & Grey joining the bill at the SOHH gig.
Writes Murry of the 9/18 show, and other tidbits:
So there you have it, and check back soon!
