Last night brought two of the best indie acts in the biz together for one special night of music at Madison’s Barrymore Theatre. The Walkmen’s return to form with the fantastic You & Me has proven to be one of my favorite records of the year. Who can argue with the continued greatness of Okkervil River, whose latest, The Stand Ins, is also amongst the year’s best. Having both acts under one roof was an indie rock fan’s dream bill.
Ed Oliver was on hand to capture some photos for you to check out below. As usual, please leave your thoughts/reviews in the comments. Who ruled the night? Did Okkervil River outdo their last time through the city?
