Austin's Okkervil River are in the midst of a tour that brings them to NYC to play two shows at Webster Hall this coming Monday and Tuesday with Crooked Fingers (Eric Bachmann) and Austin's Black Joe Lewis & The Honey Bears...
Black Joe Lewis & The Honey Bears were one of the really fun, live suprises of SXSW 2008 for me. I had heard mention of this band when they were out opening for Spoon last year, but had yet to hear the recorded work or see a live show. The Club DeVille set was full of big, bold soulful grooves that had everyone dancing. With his soul revival sound, James Brown-esque yells, a fresh face and a big smile, Black Joe Lewis was very easy to love. [My Old Kentucky Blog]Tickets are still on sale for both shows. This past weekend Okkervil played a show at the Austin City Limits Festival. More pictures from that below...
