The Run Down - 2-4-08 & New Pornographers Announce Tour

There's one show worth mentioning tonight in Virginia. IOTA plays host to a stellar folk line up (perfect vibe for a Monday if you ask me) in Peter And The Wolf (not to be confused with Peanut Butter Wolf---same amount of syllables---way different sound), Nat Baldwin, and the ver touring These United States. Go have a listen.

Looks like the pre-sale tickets are already sold out for Okkervil River and the New Pornographers at the 9:30. I really want to go to this show - any word on where or when the rest of the tickets will go up for sale?

I'm not sure when they actually go on sale. The show is not even listed on 9:30's site. My suggestion is just keep your ears and eyes open on their myspace, matador records site, and 9:30's site. If I hear anything I'll try to throw something up.
