The Old 97’s

Saturday, June 10

The Old 97's are a Texan institution at this point. The rowdy folk/alt-country crew, based out of Dallas, has been active, plying dynamic Texicana with the aplomb of the cult heroes that they are, since 1993. Now, with opening support from celebrated local avant-pop-rock group Buttercup, The Old 97's will commemorate the release of its eleventh studio album Graveyard Whistling this weekend. The title of the album, for those who aren't familiar with The Old 97 gospel, is a fine approximation of the band's attitude and catalog of music: in turns crass, raucous, flippant, reverent, and emotive. All told, The Old 97's, throwbacks from an era when rock stars did more than just Instagram their latest purchases of hairstyles, put on one of the most energetic and earnest live shows you're ever likely to catch. $25.00-$150.00, 8:00pm, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E Grayson St, (210) 223-2830, samsburgerjoint.com. — JC
