The thing that stands out the most for me about Okkervil River is they formed in 1998, the year I graduated high school which makes me pretty fucking old. Jesus. Their new album is a bit of a departure, however, because frontman Will Sheff wanted to “push my brain to places it didn’t want to go.”
Consider it pushed. We’re pretty excited about their 930 Club show. Tickets are on sale now but we made sure to grab a free pair for you. To win tell us what pushing your brain to the brinks and beyond would look like. Most creative answer wins. The lucky bastard who gets ’em will be notified by COB September 4th. Good luck. Get weird.
