The Old 97’s is a Dallas-original who made it somewhat big in the mid-'90s and have since become a long-touring alternative folk band. The band released their brand-new album, Graveyard Whistling, in February and have mapped out a North American tour that includes a stop back home in Dallas itself. That concert will take place at The Bomb Factory on Sept. 16. Tickets are on sale now right here through AXS (tickets).
Dallas music fans of a certain age should remember the Old 97’s as a regular club band around the DFW area through the early ‘90s. While the band was dropped from their major label deal when AOL and Time Warner merged and purged much of their catalog, the Old 97’s remain known for a number of TV shows that featured their songs, including “Veronica Mars” and “Scrubs.”
In 2013, the Old 97’s teamed with fellow Texas music legend Waylon Jennings for a music EP. Their most recent album, Graveyard Whistling, is the band’s 19th album but only the fifth one to chart on the Billboard 200. Despite their Dallas roots, the concert at The Bomb Factory is only one of two Texas stops, with the second at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center in Midland.
Tickets for the Old 97’s Dallas concert are on sale right now through AXS. Prices for the Sept. 16 concert at The Bomb Factory range from $43.50 up to $55. The concert kicks off at 8 p.m. CT.
