Roky Erickson & Okkervil River @ Webster Hall – pics & setlist
“From the very first chords — wisely not something from the new album, but a scorching version of Roky‘s classic “Night of the Vampire” — it was evident that it was going to be a show to remember. And it just got better from there. Okkervil’s frontman, Will Sheff, who with his beard and spectacles looked every bit like a long-lost son of John Lennon, spent the 90-minute set grinning from ear to ear as he played out his guitar fantasies onstage with Roky.
This was clearly a labor of love for Sheff and his band. Okkervil River was definitely not a backup band, but a true collaborator with Roky.” [WYMMWIG]
