The Levon Helm Band will be departing from their weekly "Midnight Ramble" gig at Helm's Studio in Woodstock for a show at NYC's Terminal 5 on Thursday, January 7th, 2010. Joining them at this show be Okkervil River (currently their only scheduled show). Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 6th at noon.

Okkervil River's last full band show in NYC was January '09 at the then-new-venue Bell House. The band recently appeared on an episode of Austin City Limits with M. Ward. A clip of them performing the song "Unless It's Kicks" from that is posted below.

Even Levon is not immune to the cancer that is T5. What a travesty.

This is too incredible of a bill to be at such a shitty venue.

Levon is the man!
I only wish Will Sheff would drag him down to Austin for a proper show (NOT AN ACL FEST appearence, ugh)

I agree with 2:00PM. Insanely good show, deserves a venue where the sound is actually good. Why T5, guys? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

(what's with all the club groupies trashing the spot... all this free speech needs to be channeld into riots against THE MAN!)

The show was great, T5 is an awesome venue... I look forward to shows there because it still has the big concert feel but cozier- it's near street parkin- and easy to get to and leave.
My first time seeing Levon and it was front row on the side he was on and it was AWESOME.
