This is the 3rd year for the Cystic Fibrosis Concert Series at the Granada Theater. Raising money and awareness were Rhett Miller, Salim Nourallah and the O's. A special VIP performance with Shibboleth and then Rhett started the evening. Rhett had just returned from a month in Europe touring with Steve Earle, and it was great to see him stateside again, making time for an important cause. A spectacular event in a lovely venue. This might become an annual tradition for me.
Local media personality and event emcee Gordon Keith joined Rhett for a delightful version of the theme song from WKRP in Cincinnati
I Need to Know Where I Stand
The O's are a talented, multi-instrumental Dallas duo. It definitely sounds like there are more than two of them.
Salim Nourallah, Dallas super-producer and musician was the first to perform the regular show. Salim produced Rhett's recent solo CD as well as the Old 97's last, Blame It on Gravity. Coming soon: my interview with Salim at his Pleasantry Lane Studio.
