Okkervil River: Australian Tour – May 2009

Written by Toby Smith on February 18, 2009

Austin’s OKKERVIL RIVER return to Australia this May for appearances in regional Australia as part of the Groovin’ The Moo festivals, as well as club dates in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.

Renowned for their vivid lyrical imagery, their infectious and bittersweet melodies, as well as their intensely passionate live performances, this tour marks the band’s fourth trip to Australia, but the first since the release of their remarkable 2008 album, The Stand Ins.
