Start with old-fashioned rock, mix in a dash of garage band funk and a heaping spoonful of honky tonk, and you get a band that has withstood two decades in alt-rock/country scene. The Old 97's storytelling and honest tunes are equally at home in a boot-stomping saloon or a hip theater. In April, the band released its new album, Most Messed Up, a reflection on its 21-year ride. Grab a glass of whiskey—you know the band will enjoying some onstage—and hear the group's ramblin' in person. Sat 9 p.m.
