One of my favorite on-campus shows was when Okkervil River, just before the release of Black Sheep Boy, played a particularly spirit concert that ended in frontman Will Sheff taking the stage again and playing until his burnt-out bandmates finally joined him for a proper encore. I had friends from Texas visiting and I think they left the venue impressed. Black Sheep Boy would go on to be the first album I reviewed for Cokemachineglow; it’s still one of my favorite records of that year.
