Okkervil River in concert. Propelled by the cryptic songwriting of frontman Will Sheff, the Austin band Okkervil River makes dark, literate rock that's as explosive as it is thoughtful and intimate. Now on tour in support of one of the year's best albums, 'The Stage Names,' Okkervil River visits Washington, D.C. for a full concert. The performance from the Rock and Roll Hotel was originally webcast live on NPR.org Sept. 30. A set list for this show is available at NPR.org.
