Old 97s, Teddy Thompson 

When: Wed., April 13, 8:45 p.m. 2011
Price: $18-20

Not too long ago, the Old 97s appeared headed for a ditch. Bandleader Rhett Miller had already leapt into a solo career, and the vehicle was faltering behind two middling-to-weak albums since leaving the majors after 2001's Satellite Rides. It seemed like Miller was saving his best material for his solo discs. But 2007's unpleasant sessions for (the disappointing) Blame It on Gravity gave the band CPR, and they returned last year with the first of two albums recorded at the Grande Theatre. The first album showcases a revitalized crew bringing more purpose and skill to bear than anything they've done in more than a decade. With Teddy Thompson. —Chris Parker
