Okkervil River coming to San Diego

But don’t get too excited – it’s not until September 3rd. Damien Jurado will be opening, and they’ll be playing at the Casbah for $14.

I’m a big fan of their older work (although I’m most familiar with Black Sheep Boy), and their fifth LP, entitled The Stage Names, will be released on August 7th, 2007. Oh, yeah, and if you haven’t heard, Lou Reed is a huge fan.
