Too Far to Care, the Old 97’s’ 1997 big-label debut, is one of alt-country’s hookiest and best albums — a perfect bookend to 2008’s Blame It on Gravity. The band is back on the road this summer playing songs from its 15-plus-year career. The Old 97’s have kept the same four members ever since they formed in Dallas at the top of the ’90s, so they’ve had plenty of time to become a great live band during that time (for further proof, check out their 2005 concert album Alive and Wired). The band is putting the finishing touches on a new record that’s due this fall, so you’ll probably hear some of those songs at the show. But since they’re not really promoting anything at this point, you’ll also hear plenty of classics. The Old 97’s. play the Beachland Ballroom at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $22, $20 in advance. —Chris Drabick
