Upcoming: Okkervil River and Sea WolfSeptember 14, 2008
There’s a lit-inspired-band-name double bill this week – Okkervil River (from a short story by Tatyana Tolstaya) and Sea Wolf (which I presume has some relation to the Jack London novel by the same name). They’re playing together at the Showbox, here in Seattle, this Wednesday, September 17th. Okkervil River are supporting their new album The Stand Ins, and I imagine that Sea Wolf will show off some new music since their last tour, which followed the release of 2007’s Leaves in the River.
Coincidentally, even as I write this, Okkervil River’s brilliant new track, “Lost Coastlines,” just came on over the speakers at my beloved local coffee shop, Fuel. I predict some serious audience participation at the concert when it comes to the ‘la la la’s towards the end of the song.
