Summary

Established indie-folk band Okkervil River will perform two shows in July at Old Town School Of Folk Music.

What We Say

Fresh off their widely acclaimed 2016 record "Away," Okkervil River have announced a special limited run of acoustic trio shows which will feature fan requests and rarities. 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." Okkervil River's "Away" was named one of the best records of 2016 by media including Wall Street Journal and The Atlantic and hailed by NPR as "graceful and evocative.”
