Day 2 of TURF was rainy. Like, very rainy. It kept me away from the outdoor portion of the festival down at Fort York and allowed me to concentrate on the Club Series show at Lee's Palace. The club show featured The Deslondes, Lee Harvey Osmond (click through for those posts), and a band I'd been wanting to see for a long time, Okkervil River.

The band was formed in Austin Texas and tunes like "Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe" and "Unless It Kicks" have become essential listening for me. They put on a fun show and have tons of dedicated fans that keep the energy loop going. They were plagued by sound problems including the absence of monitors and acoustic guitar, but were totally professional and kept their energy levels up.

"Okkervil River R.I.P."

"A Girl in Port"

"The Industry"

"Unless It Kicks"

"Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe"


"So Come Back, I'm Waiting"

"For Real"
