Description

On Thursday, July 18, the OLD 97s are making their Plano debut with a concert at Legacy Hall’s outdoor entertainment venue, the Box Garden.

Known for hit songs like Timebomb and Barrier Reef, the OLD 97s are leading the alt-country movement with their out of the ordinary sound. Fan favorite singer-songwriter Rhett Miller will be front and center with his unmistakable voice and furious rhythms.

OLD 97'S: Rock and roll’s been very very good to me,” Rhett Miller sings on “Longer Than You’ve Been Alive,” an epic six-minute stream-of-consciousness meditation on his life in music. It’s a rare moment of pulling back the curtain, on both the excesses and tedium of the world of a touring musician, and it’s the perfect way to open the Old 97’s new album, ‘Most Messed Up.’

“I wrote that song very quickly and didn’t rewrite one word of it,” Miller explains. “It’s sort of a thesis statement not just for this record, but for my life’s work.”

To say that rock and roll has been good to the Old 97’s (guitarist/vocalist Miller, bassist/vocalist Murry Hammond, guitarist Ken Bethea, and drummer Philip Peeples) would be an understatement. The band emerged from Dallas twenty years ago at the forefront of a musical movement blending rootsy, country-influenced songwriting with punk rock energy and delivery. The New York Times has described their major label debut, ‘Too Far To Care,’ as “a cornerstone of the ‘alternative country’ movement…[that] leaned more toward the Clash than the Carter Family.” They’ve released a slew of records since then, garnering praise from NPR and Billboard to SPIN and Rolling Stone, who hailed the band as “four Texans raised on the Beatles and Johnny Cash in equal measures, whose shiny melodies, and fatalistic character studies, do their forefathers proud.” The band performed on television from Letterman to Austin City Limits and had their music appear in countless film and TV soundtracks (they appeared as themselves in the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston movie ‘The Break Up’). Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told The Hollywood Reporter that he put the band on a continuous loop on his iPod while writing the show’s final scene.

DAVID BECK’S TEJANO WEEKEND: The Summer of 2017 found Texas native David Beck lost and looking for inspiration: an impromptu house party was where it all changed. There on the big screen TV, volume on full blast, was Selena and her band shaking the Astrodome with a sound that resonated and caused a chain reaction inside. He was instantly captivated and knew his next move. He began devouring Tejano music, one of the soundtracks of his birthplace San Marcos, Texas. He began writing and recording Tejano inspired music, and naturally began playing shows. Gathering up friends, he quickly had a band: blazing accordion, shimmering keys, cranked guitars, upright bass and drums. The sound he’s created is traditional Tejano sung in English. Every song is a dance track, every show is a party focused on friends, family, and bringing the two together. David is no stranger to the stage, he took his previous bands Sons of Fathers and Blue Healer from The Grand Ole Opry to Bonnaroo, from Gruene Hall to Austin City Limits, all while fronting the groups from the Upright Bass. This latest incarnation of his art will surely leave fans with limp legs and happy hearts.
