Okkervil River – The Silver Gynasium out on 9/2

by Woody on August 6, 2013


I have been smitten with Okkervil River and Will Sheff for so long I can’t remember them not being a part of my fabric. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Sheff a few times during SXSW. I imagine it played out as if my daughter met Taylor Swift. For Okkervil’s new album, The Silver Gymnasium – Sheff is feeling all nostalgic about his upbringing in New Hampshire. He’s been playing at open mics in New Hampshire, his old school cafeteria, basically anywhere they’ll let him play with his old pal Aaron Johnson.

I was out on Friday night with a couple of other long time Okkervil devotees and to a man, we are all chomping at the bit for this one. Based on the videos below, The Silver Gymnasium is going to be special.
