Ok here we go


Ok, here we go. After a two year hiatus thanks to server storage and bandwidth issues, and technical problems with RealAudio encoding software, we've got sound files back up. And this time, "Hit By A Train" is building a bridge to the... uhm... twentieth century, with... mp3's! That's right, no more RealAudio files! Now it's rip, mix, and burn, baby. First check out the "Audio" page of the Discography section, where for each Old 97's studio album we now have at least two of the tracks available for downloading in mp3 format. Maybe some of you fans of the band's

Hey im home for nine straight days


Hey I'm home for nine straight days, which will be my longest break in nearly two years, so stand by for some major site updates. In the meantime, check the Tour Dates page for two new Rhett solo shows and - get your party on - the Old 97's New Years Eve show is BACK! Also, shame if you missed the guys October 30 show in Dallas, celebrating the ten year anniversary of the release of Hitchhike To Rhome. I was sober enough for the first half of the show to rank it as one of my two favorite 97

Damn man sorry about long delay between


Damn, man, sorry about the long delay between posts, but the job's been running me all over the place and running me ragged. OK, so remember I promised a big pile-o-new Old 97's .mp3's? Well, they're not here yet but we've finally gotten all our sever and bandwidth issue addressed, so now all I have to do is upload these babies, including a nifty couple of rarities. Check back in the next few days. And I actually have a ton of news, but I'm so far behind let's just start with this nugget, shall we? From today's Dallas Observer: Miller

Some updates on upcoming shows: The Deathray Davies will now be joining the bill with the Old 97's for the Indianapolis, Columbus, Louisville, and Atlanta shows (October 26, 27, 28, 29), and the October 24 show at the Rave in Milwaukee will feature a pre-show party, on a side stage, where fans who get to the venue a bit early can enjoy a beverage and catch some live music. Also before the Old 97's October 18 show in Portland, you can catch them at an in-store performance at Music Millennium (801 NW 23rd. St.) at 6:30 pm. Finally, I'm sure

Hey you guys drag it up is gonna be


Hey you guys, Drag It Up is gonna be around for a good while yet, and we'd sure like to help keep up the buzz, on campus and around town, especially when the 97's head your way for live shows, and when they release new songs to radio. One of the best ways to do that is with a street team, which is nothing more than people who love the band, and who want to help spread the word. Well, Brenda Hall is coordinating the street team for the Old 97's, and she'd like our help. If you have suggestions

So how bout them live shows


So how 'bout them live shows. There was that great big photo of Murry, above the fold on the September 20 Austin American-Statesman. And did you guys catch the 97's on McEnroe last week? In addition to "New Kid," the guys let Johnny Mac sidle up on guitar while the boys just tore the hell out of the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated." If you missed the show, you can check it out, courtesy of Dr. David Welsh. He's not just a fan, a doctor, scholar, and a gentlemen, but he's also got a server that's about to crash. Sorry

After vowing never to do a tour diary - or at least not to blog on tour - Rhett gives in. For his hometown paper. But hey, we'll take it! More tomorrow. I promise.
