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. Hey Rhett, if you need some bootlegs of those Fez shows to get you in the mood, let me know! 😉

Also mentioned was plans for the 97’s to re-enter the studio this summer. Rhett’s got some writing to do.
