Old 97's

The Old 97’s have too much fun together to ever call it quits, even when frontman Rhett Miller went solo in a not-so-fun adult-contemporary way. Still, there’s a comeback/reunion vibe to the Dallas twang-rockers’ first record in four years, “Most Messed Up,” full of the barn-burning, barroom-dazed story songs that defined the quartet’s early albums. The guest appearance by Tommy Stinson fits in perfect with the album’s bleary eyes and bleeding fingers. Bluesy St. Louis band Kentucky Knife Fight and Dallas singer/songwriter Madison King open.
