Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Mabye

Yesterday’s mid-afternoon announcement of interesting late-night television content seemed to go pretty well, so here’s another.

The mighty Okkervil River will make what I believe is their network TV appearance tonight on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, performing “Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe” from The Stage Names. The same song, incidentally, for which there’s now a video that you can grok below – it starts about 40 seconds in. Conan is on tonight at 12:35 AM EDT and the band will be on towards the end, so say 1:20 AM EDT. Also appearing on tonight’s show are Jeff Goldblum and Devon Aoki, aka The Fly and that samurai girl from Sin City.

AZCentral.com has a talk with Will Sheff about the new album and Pollstar mentions that there are a couple bonus tracks kicking around – “(Shannon Wilsey on the) Starry Stairs” is available at iTunes and a new recording of “Love To A Monster”, which appeared on the Australia-only Overboard And Down EP, is available at eMusic. Actually, I’d double-check that it is different from the Overboard & Down version…

Update: Okay, that was pretty damned awesome. Will post a link when NBC puts the show online…
Update 2: YouTube-d.

    As best I can tell the "Love to a Monster" is the same as the album–they both are 4:54 but I didn’t buy it to find out. Thanks for the heads up on the iTunes purchase.

    In San Francisco they did an alternate version of the song that thought of playing on Conan (with Jeff Goldblum movie-themed lyrics)
