The Old 97s visited Austin a day after the release of their newest, The Grand Theatre Vol. 1 to play not one, but two shows, making this a "best-day-ever" scenario for me. The first was an instore at Waterloo Records, where they played new and a few old to a big crowd. Then later, they hit the Ghost Room for a special KGSR Listeners Private Party. The room was full of fans who loved the new material and screamed the lyrics of the old. It was a lovely day!
So with ACL Fest and last minute access to The National taping on Monday, along with this fantastic day, I'm a little beat, but exceedingly happy :-)
