OLD 97'S, LANGHORNE SLIM

(Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) Bouncing at the intersection of country, punk, and power pop, Old 97's just keep getting better with age. They swoop through town on the back of their latest, The Grand Theatre, Volume One, and don't miss opener (and new Portland resident) Langhorne Slim, whose raucous country soul is also becoming the stuff of legend.
