Old 97´s

Writing a recommendation for an Old 97's show is a little like coming out strong for oxygen. And if I know my hardcore 97's crowd, there's nothing I can tell you about the hip-shaking, sweat-flinging, beer-swilling singalong that will be the New Year's Eve show that you don't already know (besides maybe the fact that the openers include No. 1-local-artists-of-the-year Sorta and the Thrift-Store Cowboys). So go buy a ticket while you still can. Learn all the lyrics to this year's Drag It Up. Pop open a cold one and muscle your way to a good spot upfront. Ready? See you there.
