~ Gearing up for next month's SXSW reminded us we never posted the audio from Will's solo SXSW set in 2009 at Halcyon Coffee|Bar|Lounge.

April 20, 2010

~ In celebration of today's album release, we've added a few things to the site: Roky and Okkervil videos of "Forever" from sxsw 2009; "True Love Cast Out All Evil," "Be And Bring Me Home," and "Bring Back The Past" from sxsw 2010; Will covering "Ain't Blues Too Sad" from sxsw 2009; and audio from the Roky/Okkervil 2009 sxsw show. Look for audio from the sxsw 2009 Will solo set in the next few days.

The articles page now contains a link to an article where Will gives a brief commentary for each track on True Love Cast Out All Evil.

~ A few weeks back, Will and Beth Wawerna (Bird of Youth) covered Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" at the Bell House in Brooklyn.

To thank our readers for your support over these last two years, we've been saving this special video clip from the band "The Crystal Snifters" filmed on some mysterious day in 2008. Sight and sound may be familiar.

May 21, 2009

~ FasterLouder loves their Okkervil. In addition to the feature they gave us in advance of the recent tour, they also presented show reports from both Brisbane and Perth. Even better, to us, is this fan report of the Brisbane show.

May 16, 2009

~ MP3s from the Sydney shows are now iTunes friendly.

Over the last several weeks, we have been slowly fixing the broken links on DTO. If you discover more, please let us know!

March 19, 2009

~ OR flips into festival fervor today with their SXSW set at the Ice Cream Social. DTO is taking this occasion to announce the next DTO prize drawing: a copy of the out-of-print Julie Doiron/Okkervil River split. The winner of this CD will be announced the day of OR's last festival appearance of 2009. Small print details forthcoming.

March 10, 2009

~ At their recent St. Edward's University show Okkervil performed a Roky Erickson song. A fan was nice enough to share with DTO her video of "Think Of As One".

While we were at it, we also uploaded "For Real" from their New Orleans show last fall.

February 27, 2009

~ DTO is crawling out of the dark ages and experimenting with modern technology. You can now subscribe to a DTO rss feed.

You just never know what you're going to find when you roam around the internet. We've added a link to an interview Travis did with SomaFM last September over on our interviews page.

And since we're updating, you can also now find on DTO one of Okkervil's phenomenal Fall 2006 shows: Columbia, MO.

February 21, 2009

February 12, 2009

~ Listen and watch Beth Wawerna (Bird of Youth) open for Will with the lending of Justin and Lauren at the December Café du Nord show.

DTO hopes BoY finds the need for stray Okkervils in the future so that we can have an excuse to post more of their shows.

January 19, 2009

~ While things have been quiet, we've been taking this opportunity to do some catching up on the site.

You may have noticed a lot of new photos up. We've also added Okkervil videos from the recent Bell House show and audio from Göteborg, Glasgow, and Munich and Sheff audio from Los Angeles.

Look for more audio to come as we go through our vaults during this lull in the band's public presence.

January 12, 2009

~ The FACTS page renovation is finished.

January 1, 2009

~ DTO would like to wish everyone in the Okkervil community (and beyond) a very happy new year.

~ To celebrate the new digit, we were aiming to have a site update completed for you by today. Alas, too many candy canes intervened and only the Home and the Will solo pages get to enter into the new year with a new look (and by new look, I mean new pictures).

When taking a peek at the home page, be sure to scroll down to the bottom and click on the Photo Credits link. It now not only lists the photographer for each picture, but also its date and location.

Once again, we are very grateful to the photographers for letting us use their work and to everyone who writes to us. We urge you to do more of that too!

Over the next couple of weeks (and hopefully not months) we will add new photos and make minor tweaks to the other pages, as well as unroll two new features.

December 27, 2008

~ An injured audio recording from the Rock Café in Prague has come out of hiding.
