Okkervil River on Conan

Conan O’Brien and Will Sheff, frontman for Austin rockers Okkervil River, are two men with New England roots who seem like they’ve read a few books in their lives. So maybe it was a meeting of the minds when Okkervil River served as musical guests on last night’s episode of Conan. Or maybe it was just part of the album-release cycle for Okkervil River’s The Silver Gymnasium. Either way, the band put in a spirited rendition of “Down Down The Deep River” on TV, and you can watch it below.



The Silver Gymnasium
is out now on ATO.

  1. well. that was excellent. would love to see an interview between conan and sheff at some point. two of the more well-spoken figures in their respective fields of entertainment.

  2. This band is tighter than they’ve ever been. I’m really excited to see them in November.
