Rhett Miller

RhettSo we didn’t go to Austin but luck was with us in Amagansett.  Rhett Miller was playing at Stephen Talkhouse.  For any of you familiar with Stephen Talkhouse, we were beyond lucky.  At this point of the year, I’ve never even heard of the bands playing there.  Most you probably don’t want to hear either.  Sorry guys. 

Rhett Miller is the lead singer of the Old ’97s.  I believe since he was 15.  His only solo album, The Instigator, had some serious playtime in our house for awhile.  My sister turned me on to him.  He is a combo of Ben Lee, Jonathan Richman and Ben Kweller.  His lyrics are great and he really rocks.  I was impressed.  He played a few songs on his new album coming out in February.  That will definitely be in my pre-order box with Amazon.
