No one wants a tune about the 100th luftballoon

Just sharing a couple of photos from last week's Okkervil River concert at Mr. Small's. I opted against writing a full review since I've done that twice already this year, but I will say they weren't as good as when they played at Lollapalooza and when they opened for the New Pornographers. I'm thinking that has to do with the length of the set - it's easier to have a high-quality show when you're playing for only 40 or 60 minutes, but when you have to fill 90 minutes, that's more of a challenge. (That's another reason why I love festivals: Shorter sets = higher quality!)

This show didn't really pick up steam until near the end, with "Lost Coastlines" and "Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe." It was good, but nothing to write home about.
