Okkervil River

Another day, another great gig courtesy of local promoters The Gilded Palace Of Sin.

Last night it was the turn of the wonderful Okkervil River from Austin, Texas. They look like software developers but they play like demons. Have a listen for yourself.

Support was provided by local band Hart Crane. I had a chat with them about whether Brighton was big enough for two bands with names ending with “ane”. Perhaps together, Salter Cane and Hart Crane could form a new musical genre like… anecore or americ-ane-a.
