Details of Okkervil River and the Ticket Luck value
Okkervil River is a folk and indie rock band hailing from the state of Texas. It was formed in 1998 and the name comes from a Russian short story written by Tatyana Tolstaya. The band self released “Stars Too Small to Use” and because of it, they were invited to the musical festival South by Southwest. After the recording of their album, which was done in their garage, the band signed to Jagjaguwar. Four more albums followed their debut album, which also included the one that brought them mainstream success. It was “Black Sheep Boy”. The band continues to perform and is currently on a tour for which Okkervil River tickets are available.
Okkervil River was formed by students of Kimball Union Academy in New Hampshire. After college, they decided to form their own band. Initially the band consisted of Zach Thomas, Seth Warren and Will Sheff. The band performed their very first gig in January of 1999 at Steamboat in Austin. After that they started to record “Bedroom” the EP. It was followed by the release of their album “Stars Are Too Small”. While performing at a gig, the band met Brian Beattie, the recording engineer who agreed to create a record with them.
Okkervil River was invited to the musical festival SXSW 2000 because of their album. They were later featured in an article in the Austin Chronicle. After meeting Beattie, they started working on the album “Don’t Fall in Love with Everyone You See”. After the release of the album the band joined Jagjugawar and a year later moved to San Francisco to record another album with Scott Solter of Tiny Telephone. The result was the release of their 2002 album “Down the River of Golden Dreams”. Over the course of time many members left the band and were replaced by new ones.
Okkervil River started to record with Beattie once again in the August of 2004. The recording of “Black Sheep Boy” finished in the November of the same year. Because of the success of the album, the band released an EP titled “Black Sheep Boy Appendix” later as well. This was followed by their fourth album titled “The Stage Names”. It was produced by Beattie yet again and was released in August of 2007. It debuted on the Billboard chart at number sixty two and managed to sell more than 10,000 copies, which was yet another success.
Okkervil River’s next album “The Stand Ins” debuted at Billboard 200 at number forty two and sold more than 11,000 copies. It was followed by a free mixtape named “Golden Opportunities Mixtape”. In 2009, they were invited to perform at the Late Show with David Letterman. Okkervil River’s latest album “I Am Very Far” was released in May of 2011 .In order to promote it, the band embarked on a tour along with Julianna Barwick, Titus Andronicus, New Villager and Future Islands. Like the album, the tour was a huge success as well.
Okkervil River continues to tour as well as record music. Apart from Okkervil River, the band members have worked on several other projects as well. In 2001, another band Shearwater was also founded by Sheff and Meiburg. It started off as a side band, however by the passage of time became a complete band. “Palo Santo” which was released in 2006, brought Meiberg immense fame and success. Since then Okkervil River and and Shearwater have toured together as separate bands as well. Now Okkervil River is once again hitting the road and bringing their music city to city and will shortly be arriving in your town. You can be there with the Okkervil River tickets.
