Rick's Picks of the Week, the front man and main songwriter of the hard-charging rock 'n' roll quartet the Old 97's, as well as an accomplished solo artist, Rhett Miller, will be performing live on Saturday, September 10th at 8pm on the Mainstage at The Triple Door.
In addition to his seven records with the 97's, Miller released two highly regarded solo albums, The Instigator (2002) and The Believer (2006). Rhett continues to balance his solo endeavors with his membership in the Old 97's. The still-active quartet released their full-length studio album, Blame it On Gravity, on May 13, 2008.
This week, in addition to the Mainstage act, Rick picked Hammond organist Joe Doria live on Friday, September 9th in the Musicquarium. Joe Doria has been making big waves on the music scene and is the most sought after organist in the area, dazzling audiences with his ability to tightly weave both the bass lines and the chordal structure of a song, yet, at the same time, adding depth and dimension to every song he performs.
