Did you miss the Old 97’s on Kilborn? Not to worry, CBS reruns the Old 97’s July 30 appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn TONIGHT. Also we got a nifty new review of Drag It Up from the August issue of SoCal’s Mean Streets.

Also, did you happen to catch the story of the scuffle turned tragic at the Old 97’s July 25 show at Dallas’ Gypsy Tea Room? Well now you can do something to help, as a benefit fund has been set up in the victim’s name. Please send donations to Northridge Presbyterian Church, attn: Brent Barry, 6920 Bob O Link, Dallas, TX 75214.

Also, you can begin to pre-order your tickets for most Old 97’s October shows, beginning tomorrow. Tickets for the 10/14 El Lay date are already on sale! In additon, the Old 97’s Image Archive page is also back up and walking, if not running. Check it out.

Finally, two notes on the Old 97’s Merchandise page. First up, the supplier is already out of Drag It Up CD’s, and until they get restocked, you won’t see a button to order the CD on-line. Second, I just received this note from our friends at amplifier.com, who operate the Old 97’s on-line store:

“Apparently, Yahoo! is having some rare technical problems today which has caused some of their stores to go down. Unfortunately, www.amplifierstores.com is being affected by this.”

“We have a trouble ticket in with Yahoo!, but they said it could take up to 24 hrs for the issue to be resolved (typical). In the mean time, we have moved the affected online stores to another location (our old store). Please change the Merchandise link on Old 97s.com to: http://store.yahoo.com/copernica/old97s.html This will resolve the problem until www.amplifierstores.com is back up.”

So now you know.
