T5 is too big for Okkervil River. Not really digging the new album either. Even with Titus opening this looks like a PASS.

New album is real good dude.

Too bad that show is at T5. Not going to that hellhole.

I like the new album, but I agree with 11:42 about the venue size. The last time around, with Levon Helm, that place couldn't have been more than 60% full. Titus (and Future Islands) are both great, but play the city pretty often. I'd rather pay an extra ten bucks, but catch it at Webster or Wellmont (not that Bowery gave us the option).

Trocadero in Philly is such a better venue for them. Hopping on the train for a weekend away.

Saw them at Webster a few years back. Good show. Once again T5 is a deal-breaker.
