So what if the members of the Old 97's decided to skip over their hometown region for their "An Evening With..." tour? We get this as a cool make-up: On Friday, August 21, the band will make its debut at Fort Worth's Bass Hall. And opening the show? DC9 favorite Telegraph Canyon, which just finished up recording its much-anticipated-around-the-region self-titled, sophomore release.
Tickets, which cost $25 to $39, go on sale on Saturday right here.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
