Old 97’s

To say that music has been good to the Old 97’s would be an understatement. There aren’t more than a handful of bands in history who can claim to have an intact, unchanged line-up as they approach 25 years together. The band emerged from Dallas at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery.

Touring in support of their 11th studio album, Graveyard Whistling, Old 97’s has earned the respect and veneration as one of the pioneers of the alt-country movement, while still retaining the raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit that first distinguished them from the pack.
