More big news from Mike Snider today--this time about an upcoming string of shows scheduled between Christmas and New Year's Eve at Sons of Hermann Hall.
In short: Longtime favorite local alt-country outfit the Old 97's has been booked to play four consecutive nights at the Deep Ellum ballroom, from December 27 through December 30. Like this past summer's tour from the band (although not the case here in Dallas), all four nights will be presented as an "An Evening With..." affair, with Murry Hammond and Rhett Miller both performing opening solo sets each night before 97's take the stage.
Should make for quite the event--especially, says Snider, considering that when the band did four nights in Hoboken earlier this year, it didn't repeat any of its songs except for the last one each night. Unfortunately, Snider says he can't just yet confirm that the same will be the case when the band holds its Sons residency. But you'd have to think the 97's would do something like that here, too, right? We'll let you know if we hear any confirmation on that front...
Regardless, $26 advance tickets go on sale tomorrow, available for purchase online via Front Gate Tickets and in person around town at both Good Records and Bill's Records. Meanwhile, tickets purchased at the door, if available, will cost $30.
