What time is Okkervil River going on? I have less than zero interest in this opener.

I bet Eartha Kitt had only nice things to say about Glasvegas.

highly recommend Black Swan Green at Merc tonight

Posted by EF Matt | January 6, 2009 2:43 PM

he's a singer songwriter based in brooklyn, although i think he got his start in chicago. the vocal delivery is very much like will sheff's. it's good, hopefully there will be a full band behind him.

Okkervil River tonight....best show of the year. Yes, it's only 6 days in. The bar has been set.

Okkervil kicked some serious ass, and that Chris Mills is a promising young fellow. Another great, great show at the Bell House.

Seriously, Okkervil River was great. The Bell House is my new favorite venue

Excellent venue, AMAZING performance by Okkervil River. Even the crowd wasn't annoying. And the bar wasn't too expensive! All in all, a great night.

Okkervil Setlist?

Posted by Anonymous | January 7, 2009 12:01 PM

I don't remember the whole setlist (I'm sure someone will post it, the girl standing next to me was writing it down), but they did play Bruce Wayne Campbell Interviewed etc. etc., the best song from their new album, for what was (as far as I can tell from their setlist site) the first time ever.
