Tonight I decided last minute to head over to Castle Clinton in Battery Park to see Okkervil River as part of the River to River festival. I have to say, R2R is one of the best free festival events going on in the city right now. The shows always have such a great vibe and take place in really beautiful settings.
Anyway I was told before coming to the show that they were sorta alt.country meets emo (hence why I went) but that the band wasn’t super cute or anything.
So when life gives you lemons, make lemonade…Out of the band members on stage, which do you think I thought was the cutest?
But on the music side, I liked the encore songs the best, which I heard were all older songs. Especially the one about the President being dead.
