5. OLD 97'S @ BOULDER THEATER | MON, 9/10/12
It's virtually impossible to utter the words "alt-country" without mentioning Old 97's. It's hard to say who was first, but Old 97's were clearly at the forefront of the movement that managed to revive the rock-infused country of the '60s while imparting it with a DIY aesthetic. Nearly two decades later, the band is still trudging along with significant cult status.
