Especially if that involves a lot of money to travel to see him.

I went to Manchester on thursday to see Okkervil River. I *heart* them.

The gig was brilliant. I was at the Academy Three, which is teeny tiny. I was right at the front, which meant leaning on the stage :)

The support act Stars and Sons were good, and very sweet ('this is our new single out on...not in shops or anything'). Being right at the front meant that it'd be rude not to have taken lots of photos, and afterwards the bass player asked if I can send them to the band :)

My chosen standing spot wasn't quite so great for Okkervil though. The keyboard was right in front of me, which meant I couldn't really see my happy drummer all night :( On the plus side though while putting his beer on the side of the stage he noticed me and smiled.

As usual with Okkervil the music was lovely, and the only downside was that it all ended too quickly.

Afterwards I ended up chatting to Patrick, the bass player (still no Travis, woe :( ). And finding out that he is trying to get them to play over here. He has a Manx cat hehe.

I can go see 'em again now?

(I need an Okkervil icon)
