Old 97's TOO FAR TO CARE Tour w/Salim Nourallah & Rhett Miller (solo)
October 29, 2012
From late August through October, the Old 97′s will be on tour in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the release of Too Far To Care. Each show will feature the album performed live, start to finish, with a second set of even more old favorites. Openers will vary, but will include Those Darlins on some dates and Salim Nourallah on others, with a special solo opening set by Rhett himself.
Rumor has it that fall might bring a vinyl release of the album as well. Stay tuned for details, and a wealth of new merch coming to old97s.com very soon.
“Serving as the ideal apex between the Old 97′s’ Texas twang and smart pop fascinations, Too Far to Care is instantly catchy and endearing, channeling heartbreaking desert soul and punk-fueled swagger all at the same time. Chief songwriter Rhett Miller turns a phrase like a doorknob and opens doors to dusty barrooms and tattered bedrooms, both containing the same boozy characters in various states of emotional undress. …”
