We’ve had a crush on Will Sheff since 2003 when Okkervil River’s album, Don’t Fall in Love with Everyone You See, made us question every band before them. Their songs are seductive and heart-wrenching, analytical and honest.  If you haven’t had a chance in the last 12 years to read about our coffee date with Will Sheff at the Crocodile, you should. It will give you a bunch more reasons to fall in love with Will and Okkervil River.

On Monday, December 14, 2015Will Sheff will be in Seattle performing as Okkervil River (solo), celebrating the 10th anniversary of the beautiful and critically acclaimed album, Black Sheep Boy. I’m not sure if that means that the album will be played in order with alternate versions and stories about the recording of the album (PLEASE!) or if he’ll just play “The Latest Toughs” on repeat for two hours as I’ve dreamed (probably not, I’m guessing) – but the show will be a heart-stopper in all the best ways.

And the show is already sold-out!

But don’t fear: We have a couple tickets to give away to the sold-out show!

To enter, email us at tiglovesyou {at} gmail {dot} com with the subject line “Black Sheep Boy” anytime between now and 1pm, Thursday (12/10). We will pick a winner and email them that afternoon.

Side note question to all my fellow Okkervil River superfans: 12 years later and I”m still searching for a copy of Okkervil River’s first ep (Bedroom EP) and/or album (Stars Too Small to Use). Have you heard it? TELL ME ALL ABOUT IT!
