OKKERVIL RIVER w/ Hundred Visions
"Down by Okkervil River slow silent thick and black, I stared into the water, and the water it stared back..."

Okkervil River is an American indie rock band from Austin, Texas. Formed in 1998, the band takes its name from a short story by Russian author Tatyana Tolstaya. Theirs is a wonderfully literate and emotional brand of indie rock - the song writing is beautifully idiosyncratic and the music alternates between dark introspection and peppy nostalgia. It's folk, it's indie pop, it's occasionally '80s but thoroughly modern.

The band has garnered much positive critical reception. Rolling Stone magazine described the band as "a gripping cross of drowsy understatement and lightning bolts of anxiety, like Pavement bursting through the middle of R.E.M's "Country Feedback."  Pitchfork called their 2005 album Black Sheep Boy "one of the best rock biographies of the decade."

They have been featured on all of the late night shows including David Letterman, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon and have performed with high profile bands such as Wilco, The Decemberists, The National, Roky Erickson and the late Lou Reed who pronounced Okkervil River one of his favorite contemporary bands.

Austin's Hundred Visions, hot off of a tour with White Denim and last year's SXSW appearance, open.

Doors at 7:00, Music at 8:00
