OKKERVIL RIVER Headline KEXP Holiday Fest; Return From Tour Downunder

With only 4 shows left on their tour of Australia, Okkervil River are almost due back in the States, which will find them headlining KEXP’s 3rd Annual Yule Benefit with THE WRENS, HARVEY DANGER, MARK GARDENER (of RIDE) and THE DIVORCE, in Seattle on Dec. 17. Will Sheff had this to report from downunder:
“The American “Against Doctors’ Orders” tour – which saw me get strep throat and bronchitis and Travis break his wrist – went by in a blur of hydrocodone and steroids and now we’re in Australia. So far it’s been going well. We’ve played packed shows in Melbourne and Brisbane, a two-night stand in Sydney, and an almost deserted stint at a rural casino and sports-bar. We’re ending the tour playing at Australia’s famous celebration of nature and drugs and public nudity, the Meredith Music Festival. After that, we return home and immediately fly to Seattle for KEXP’s two-night Christmas party, where we’re headlining with the Wrens. And then hopefully rest, recuperation, holiday cheer.”
