"It was hilarious to hear a man as gorgeous as Rhett Miller sing about losing at love to a better-looking man. Who could that have been?" - Jason Crane

Rhett Miller (Old 97's) @ BVSXSW 2011
Old 97's

Old 97's played two shows at The Bell House on Wednesday (7/13) and Thursday (7/14) with fellow Texan Robert Ellis as part of an ongoing tour. A video from the first show is below. A picture of the setlist from that same show can be viewed HERE.

Frontman Rhett Miller, who is not frustrated with Manhattan, will play in NYC again this month on July 30 on the Oval at Stuyvesant Town with Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, and Hayes Carll as part of Peter Cooper VIllage/Stuyvesant Town's "Summer on the Oval series. The show runs from 4 PM to 8 PM and is free to the public. More dates for all of these artists are listed below.

Hayes Carll meanwhile plays Summerstage tonight (7/18) with Emmylou Harris and Levon Helm. We're giving away two tickets on facebook.

A belated and second set of pictures of the Old 97's playing the BrooklynVegan party at Barbarella during SXSW (where Robert Ellis can be seen in the crowd), with that video from the Bell House show, and all tour dates for everyone mentioned above, below...

Their shows aren't as crazy as they were in the mid 90's, and now Rhett has a lot of middle aged women for fans, but the 97's are still one of the best live bands around.
