I know Dave and Everett are fans already, but for the rest of you: the Old 97's are playing at the Bluebird on Saturday June 28. Karen and I will be there; you should too. Always a great show. Rolling Stone says their new album, Most Messed Up, is full of "airtight songs celebrating life-as-sublime-train-wreck amid music that conjures the British Invasion landing in a Texas barroom." Paste says "the Old 97’s aren’t fucking around" and calls it "a cathartic, punk-rock stomper of a record." Peter Dinklage says "I am the Imp; I have certain standards to maintain."
Hope to see you there.
