Okkervil River to tour with Wilco

After finishing up a successful Australian tour, Okkervil River are gearing up for a busy summer. First off is the band's first ever taping for the legendary Austin City Limits concert program on June 18. The band is also still touring behind last year's The Stand Ins, the companion to 2007's The Stage Names. Besides a bunch of dates supporting Wilco, Will Sheff and crew will be at Bonnaro on June 14, the Ottawa Bluesfest July 10, and the Winnepeg Folk Festival July 11. They have been on the road for a while now, and by all accounts (and despite the loss of Jonathon Meiburg to full time Shearwater duty) the band has really come into their own as live performers. Check the dates:

June 14 Manchester, TN Bonnaroo- The Other Tent
June 25 Los Angeles, CA Wiltern Theatre w/ Wilco
June 26 Saratoga, CA The Mountain Winery w/ Wilco
June 27 Berkeley, CA Greek Theatre w/ Wilco
June 28 Stateline, NV Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena w/Wilco
June 30 Jacksonville, OR Britt Pavilion w/ Wilco
July 03 Morrison, CO Red Rocks Amphitheatre w/ Wilco
July 10 Ottawa, ON Ottawa Bluesfest
