97′s record and Wheels Off update – Ed Helms! Maria Bamford!

Howdy folks,

I hope this finds you all well.
I’m checking in on a rare day off.
The 97′s just wrapped the basic tracking for our new record. The rough mixes sound insanely terrific.
This is guaranteed to be our most rockin’ record ever.
Spoiler alert…
Lots of adult themes. And cursing!

On Monday the 28th of October, my next installment of Wheels Off will take place at Largo in Hollywood.
My comedy guests will be the great Maria Bamford and the fantastic Ed Helms!
I wish I could tell you the name of my musical guest. But the secret of her identity will be revealed during the show.
Trust me, though, when I tell you that she is pretty rad.

I’ve been working out the kinks on this variety show concept and have come to the conclusion that simpler is better.
Moving forward, Wheels Off will be more like a standard Rhett Miller solo acoustic show, during which I’ll bring two or three guests out for a few minutes each, often joining them after their short performance for a little collaboration.
The guests will spice up what is otherwise a straight up gig.

Check out the tour dates also, as the Old 97′s have a bunch of shows coming in November.
Can’t wait to see all of y’all.
