Last year, Okkervil River released their newest album Away and did a good amount of touring in support of it. Now they're getting set to do a run of special shows, where they'll take fan requests and play rarities as an acoustic trio. Here's more:
These are the first trio shows the band has ever done, and will be limited to four intimate concerts in unusually small rooms. “We wanted to alternate the big rock band thing with something smaller and more songwriting-centered and spontaneous,” says the lead singer and songwriter Will Sheff. "After we had such a rewarding year with "Away" it seemed like a fun idea to play some up close and personal shows, and include requests and surprises."
The dates include early and late shows in NYC on July 27 at Joe's Pub (7:30 and 9:30 PM). Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (2/10) at 2 PM. All dates are listed below.
