Hello everybody –

Murry from the band here – wanted to let y’all know about something pretty neat:

Our favorite little roots music venue in the world, the Sons of Hermann Hall in Dallas, is putting together a CD of local Dallas music to help pay for an elevator for the upstairs concert room. Those of you who have ever had to lug anything up their story-and-a-half fire-escape stairs will sympathize with this project, which is why the Old 97’s have donated a track. The song is called “Ivy’s Got A Boyfriend (Problem)” and is from the earliest live recording we’ve ever heard of ourselves, a live set at Chumley’s in Dallas in 1994. As soon as the Sons’ folks let me know how you can get the CD, I’ll get it posted on here, and you can also keep an eye on their website at www.sonsofhermann.com …

We’re good – itching to get back to it, but good. Hope y’all are good, too.
