Dawn Landes to support Okkervil River
Critically acclaimed folk-rockers Okkervil River are one of the bands on this year’s Electric Picnic bill, but for those unwilling to shell out for a weekend in Stradbally, they’ll also be playing a show in Galway’s Roisin Dubh the following Monday. As if that wasn’t mouth-watering enough, Dawn Landes has been added as support; the Kentucky-born singer-songwriter is one of the finest purveyors of Americana/alt-country around at the moment. She’ll be playing tracks from her fourth album, Sweetheart Rodeo, which will be released that very day. The first single from the album, the delightful ‘Romeo’, can currently be heard on her MySpace.
