Rhett’s okay y’all.


While "full-blown hemorrhaged vocal cords" is not a particularly pleasant turn of phrase, it's generated a good bit of buzz since Rhett used in it a tweet on April 11. Everyone from Rolling Stone to Billboard to the Huffington Post picked up the story, though the latter erroneously reported that some Old 97's shows were canceled. As always, the best source of info is Rhett himself: After blowing my voice out at the Barley House Anniversary party on Sunday, I have now got full-blown hemorrhaged vocal cords. Very painful. — Rhett Miller (@rhettmiller) April 11, 2013 Complete vocal rest for

The Curtain Falls On TFTC Anniversary Tour


Sadly, all good things must come to an end. And so February marked the third and final TFTC Anniversary tour which wound its way through the south, beginning at Mardi Gras in NOLA and ending on a very high note at the Blue Light Live in Lubbock, TX. I had the great fortune to see this show three times in three different cities, exhilarated by the exceptional setlist every night. My throat was sung raw, my thighs burned from dancing and my spirit soared from the first muscling chord of Time Bomb to the last lingering note of... Time Bomb.
