Okkervil River played Brooklyn’s newest bar The Bell House on Tuesday. Playing to a sold out crowd, they played most songs from their last two outstanding albums The Stage Names and The Stage Ins.
Will Sheff and band were in fine form this night. Songs such as “Black Sheep Boy and “For Real” are blistering live. I love the pairing of these two songs which is how it also appears on their album Black Sheep Boy. “Black Sheep Boy” starts off with just Will and guitar, but then it goes into “For Real” which is dark, loud, and wonderful.
The scariest moment might have been a drunken fan that barreled through the front of the stage and started dancing wildly. Thankfully, he was taken away by security after one song. It was a bit of a frightening moment in otherwise a fantastic show.
