It's always a beautiful day in Austin when the Old 97's show up. The show at La Zona Rosa was their first one there in a while, and it was a rockin', sweaty night due to some weak air conditioning and a strong crowd. The 97's didn't let the heat slow them down a bit, playing a 2 hour set of classics and a few from the forthcoming Grand Theatre Vol. 2, due in early July.
They were joined on the bill by Salim Nourallah and his talented band of Joe Reyes and John Dufilho, some of my favorite people on the planet. And this was the first time I was able to check out Sarah Jaffe. She's incredibly talented.
Check out my post on the media the 97's did during the day. Can't wait 'til my next chance to see 'em!
