Okkervil River - Tonight!

Posted by Rob Simonsen on Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 10:05 AM

Oh god oh god oh god. I can't even begin to hide my excitement for tonight's Okkervil River show, even though I'm pretty sure it's not going to live up to their set last year at Berbati's, which, for my money, was one of the greatest shows I think I've ever seen.

No matter, though. Tonight is going to be EPIC. I'm a bit of a nerd for the band (so much so I've been scouring the interwebs for their current setlists, trying to deduce what they'll be playing tonight), and even though it looks to be a pretty heavy on material off of The Stage Names and The Stand-Ins, it doesn't matter: as long as they play "Westfall," it's cool with me.

Above is a video for Will playing "Love to a Monster" solo for La Blogotheque. Hey Will, if you happen to read this here blog today, please please please please play this song tonight. Like, for reals. Oh, maybe you can play "For Real," too? And "No Key, No Plan." And......

Oh god oh god oh god.
