I recently stumbled upon an interview and in-store performance the 97’s did back in July 2008 during their Blame It On Gravity tour.

Rhett and Philip sat down to chat with Joel Black of before taking the tiny store stage in Hollywood to perform their nine song set.

Both the interview and performance are here. Enjoy this blast from the past.

That year I had the great pleasure to see them perform under the stars at a thank-you show for WYEP in June on a warm Pittsburgh summer evening and then again in a small club in October. The legendary Charlie Louvin was the opener. Needless to say, both shows were phenomenal.

So where did you see the guys back in 2008?

    My first Old 97’s show was in 2008 at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland. It was the best show I have ever seen. I truly became a fan after that night. There are some great videos from this show on YouTube, check them out!

  1. I saw them at an in-store and a ballroom in Portland and then later that week at the Fillmore in SF. What a great week!
