We’re proud to announce a new recurring feature on old97s.com: New Music Mondays. The first Monday of every month, we’ll be adding new music to the site’s media page. Live shows, rare demos, you name it. So check back each month to see what kind of magic awaits.
This month, we’re kicking things off with a great bootleg of a Rhett Miller solo acoustic show at a little club called Fez under Time Cafe in New York City from 4/4/01. Rhett did a series of shows in this venue around this time period, back when he still lived in NYC. There’s probably a dozen of these bootlegs in circulation, each one offering the unique charm of a Rhett solo show, filled with old favorites and many new songs that went on to become favorites themselves. This particular show is unique in that a few songs in, Ken Bethea shows up to play along for several songs. If you’re a budding drummer, this is the show for you to practice along with. So head on over to the media page and enjoy.
