Seems Miller, who is on tour to support his upcoming, Salim Nourallah-produced, self-titled, third post-97's solo disc (due out June 9), won't even be able to watch his TV turn--he's going to be performing a show in Boston during it's airing.
And Miller superfans wanting to catch a sneak peak of his record are likely out of luck, too: Old 97's fan page Hit By A Train will be hosting an online listening party to the new disc on Thursday night, as well--also at 8:30 p.m. CDT, the same time 30 Rock is scheduled to air. Great planning there.
Anyway, thank God for TiVo and DVR, huh?
Update: Just got an email from Hit By A Train's Frank Early, who says he hadn't noticed the scheduling conflict until this post went up--an oversight he calls "an embarrassment". (Hey, easy, Frank! We were just having fun!) Anyway, Early now says fans can now expect the online listening party to happen at 9 p.m. on Thursday, as opposed to 8:30--or, basically, right after the 30 Rock episode ends: "You heard it here first," Early writes. "The listening party will now kick off at 9pm CT." And people say we don't get any scoops on DC9... Ha!
