Thanks to Cathy M. and Hitchhiking for this: Rhett’s solo record has been bumped to 9/24, with “This Is What I Do” pegged as the album’s first single. Also, the Old 97’s have confirmed their first (!) date of 2002: August 2 at Dallas’ Gypsy Tea Room. Alejandro Escovedo opens. And July 25 will see a unique bill at Dallas’ Sons Of Hermann Hall: The Scrap Hotel will be sharing the stage with Grey DeLisle and Murry Hammond who will likely be joining the Hotel for a number or two. So buy that and be there!
