Note: Dallas' alt-country heavyweights the Old 97's are doing a victory lap around Texas this month, performing their 1994 debut LP Hitchhike to Rhome front to back alongside with selections from this year's Most Messed Up -- now reaping its fair share of year-end accolades -- and the rest of the group's 20-year catalogue. Although Rocks Off's reviewer had to back out last-minute due to a family emergency, photographer Violeta Alvarez and a few of the 97's Houston faithful in the packed-out Fitzgerald's stepped in to pinch-hit at what turned out to be a perfect gig for their hometown bash at Dallas' Majestic Theater the next tight.
