Don’t Miss Old 97’s on Saturday Night

April 6th, 2011

Some call the genre roots or alt. country or even country rock, but here at The House List we like to call this kind of music y’alternative. And Old 97’s have been doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well since forming in Dallas in the early ’90s. They’re known for their rousing live shows and an abundance of original material: The quartet has put out a bunch of EPs to go with eight LPs, the most recent of which, The Grand Theatre, Volume One, came out last fall. And now Old 97’s (above, doing “Time Bomb” for KEXP FM) play Webster Hall on Saturday night.
