Will Sheff of Okkervil River at Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by Tim Griffin)
Will Sheff

Okkervil River have released a new covers EP Golden Opportunities 2, the follow-up to 2007's Golden Opportunities EP. Much like that 2007 release, part deux is FREE, but features songs from Ted Lucas, Jim Sullivan, David McComb, Bill Fay, and others. Get your copy at their site.

Okkervil River have no US dates at the moment, but you can catch frontman Will Sheff at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 12/2 with Sondre Lerche and Bird of Youth. Tickets are still available. Note: though Sondre did just tour with them, Peter Wolf Crier are not also opening the Brooklyn show.

In somewhat related news, Will's old band Shearwater, who recently signed to Sub Pop, have dates coming up with Sharon Van Etten that bring them to Music Hall of Williamsburg too.

Will, I like that jacket. I was thinking it might be APC, but now I'm not so sure. When I get down chowin' down on my medium rare done Billybuger and fries with MIA's special truffle salt, I'm going to give you a ring-a-ding-ding, and you can fill me in on the threads.

In that picture he looks like he was expecting lemon hummus but instead got a healthy dollop of habanero hummus on his pita triangle. poor fellow.

Sheff so badly wants to be a poet-laureate of indie rock.
