Revved up

Posted By on Sat, Dec 4, 2010 at 1:29 PM

The Old 97's put on one hell of a show last night at the Rev Room. The foursome ripped through a solid set of material from their latest record and all the old stand-bys as well ("Barrier Reef" and "Question" to name a couple). After about an hour and a half the band took a break and Rhett Miller treated the packed house to a couple of songs on his own. The band closed things out with a rollicking, head-banging, crowd-pleasing version of "Timebomb," easily one of the group's most recognizable tunes. Long-time alt-country fans got to pay homage to one of the genre's stalwarts. The uninitiated got to bob their heads and stamp their feet to a slick, well-oiled country rock band.
