The Old 97′s played a sold out show at the Recher this past Saturday night. This show was a special night for those fans of Old 97′s because on this tour, Rhett Miller and Murry Hammond (both members of Old 97′s) opened with solo acoustic performances. The Recher filled early with fans eager to hear the openers as well as the main act. Murry started the evening playing either guitar or harmonium with his very quiet and haunting, old style country melodies. Rhett took the stage next playing many new songs from his latest release, Rhett Miller, as well as some great classics. Old 97′s played a lengthy set to close the evening. For Rhett Miller fans: he will be playing the Black Cat in DC on September 17th. Tickets for this go on sale THIS Friday (July 3rd).
Enjoy the photos from the evening.
