Per the on-stage banter at the phenomenal show at La Zona Rosa in Austin tonight, Rhett is going into the studio in Dallas in two weeks with BIOG producer Salim Nourallah. Plans are to record a "quiet" solo album for the 97's front man. One can only hope that it's a solo acoustic deal in the tradition of the sublime Largo and Fez shows from a few years back.

Its alive


Howdy y'all! Illness, stock market crashes, a move to a new home,a new web hosting home for HBAT, and a slower couple of news months for the Old 97's have all conspired to keep posting to a minimum here at Hit By A Train. Jefe and Michael were working to keep the lights on, but their recent posts below, didn't show up until now, after I updated the new FTP and publishing settings to Blogger.But anyhow, there'll be more next week when I get back to Texas. Why? Because Turkey makes me post. Cheers - frank

Seattle times on satellite riders


FYI for all y'all Bumbershooters from today's Seattle Times: Satellite Riders, an Old 97's tribute band out of Mineral Wells, Texas, plays the Tractor on Sunday, Aug. 31 at 9 p.m. Those who have seen both bands have said that the Riders sound exactly like the Old 97's, and even resemble them to an astonishing degree. A really, truly astonishing degree.If you're not up to braving the crowds that will surely throng the Old 97's Bumbershoot appearance this Monday, the Satellite Riders have got your number. (Hint: It's three short of a hundred.) Acclaimed local band Downpilot opens.So there you
