Okkervil River, Chromeo and a Ton of Other Show Announcements

​Still fresh from the release of their new album I Am Very Far, Austin's Okkervil River seems to be working quite hard to let everyone know about it.

The album is quite solid, thanks in part to the production work of local producer John Congleton, who, just like Okkervil, seems to be getting around these days.

Last time Okkervil was in town, they were the support band for Arcade Fire. Now they've announced a headlining tour of their own. On Saturday, September 17, they'll be at the Granada Theater. Tickets can be purchased at the Granada's ticket website for $24.

In other, more dancey, show announcements news, it appears that Live Nation is launching a new concert series called LG Ones to Watch. The first band to appear on their list is electro-funk act Chromeo. We've had our eyes on them for a while: Just last year, DC9 spoke with Chromeo's Dave 1 last year regarding a potential collaboration between Chromeo and VEGA, among other things. Now, the band is scheduled to appear at House Of Blues on Wednesday, September 14, along with Mayor Hawthorne. Tickets for the show will go on sale for $22 this Friday at 10 a.m. at the aforementioned Live Nation website.

...and with that. Hit the jump for more show announcements.
