Have you ever wondered what the Old 97's might sound like without Ken? Last night about thirty of us found out. They were playing the Grand Opening for the Hard Rock Cafe in Dallas. Everything got off to good start with Murry's "Hello Everybody" and they jumped into "Dance With Me". After nine or ten songs, Ken told Rhett he wasn't feeling well and left with his wife, not to be seen again. It seems he had some bad food for dinner. The band was a little confused at first but played "Question", "Miss Molly" and some Buck Owens songs,
Nice review of "an evening with the old 97's" from Ground Control magazine. Here's the link. Make sure to click "additional photos" to see them all.
We finally have at least one date for the boys in DFW. August 21, at the Bass Performance Hall. Yes, I said the Bass. No word on tickets yet. Look for another show in Dallas. ~michael
"An accomplished piece of work that grows richer with each listen." So says the Dallas Morning News of Rhett Miller. Nice! - frank
Howdy kids! Well, with just 10 days left until the June 9 drop date for Rhett Miller, the Old 97's last week announced a big bunch of new tour dates, most of them for July, and nearly all in "An Evening With The Old 97's" format, featuring opening solo sets from Rhett and Murry Hammond.BTW, Rhett's CD is already getting some great early buzz, with one early review saying, "the disc is worth repeated spins, and for those who may not be familiar with his other project, Rhett Miller should prove to be a smooth gateway for those fans who

UPDATE 5.12.09 5:46pm: Our Rhett Miller sneak-peek listening party has been reset for this Thursday 5/14 at 10pm ET, 9pm CT, right after Rhett's guest shot on 30 Rock. Just point your browsers here.BTW, I reckon the whole show will run 70 minutes or so, and a high-speed internet connection will be helpful, as will QuickTime (for the video interviews). But if you've got iTunes, you've got QuickTime, so don't sweat it. It's a good time either way. The wait'll be worth it, so we'll see you there! - frank

Rhett Miller.I'm free this Wednesday or Thursday evening, or even next week (5/18 - 5/22) and would love to hear what day works best for you guys.

Howdy gang:Just a quick note to hip everyone to a fine new interview, up just this week, between Rhett and author Ben "Superbad" Greenman, and to get y'all in on a pre-order of Rhett's new, self-titled CD. It's available for order today at Amazon.com, which also has up a nifty, solo-acoustic video of the album's catchy-like-a-cold first single, "In Need To Know Where I Stand." You can also pre-order from Newbury Comics, and that one comes complete with a signed CD booklet. It's all good!Pop Quiz: Did you know that Hit By A Train has an RSS feed? It's been
