CF Benefit in Dallas, Nov. 14, 2009 - Rhett Miller, Salim Nourallah and more...

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

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.
