I figured this segment of Micro-News was a little over due, plus I have found myself with the time to type and didn't want to pass up the opportunity. This post contains news from Times New Viking, Death Cab For Cutie, and Okkervil River.
You can add Death Cab For Cutie to the onslaught of great shows that will be hitting the Boston area this fall. DCFC have announced a show at Agganis Arena on October 3rd. There will be a special fan club pre-sale on 8/20 with the general on sale set for 8/23. You can read up on all the details at deathcabforcutie.com.

On September 9th Okkervil River will be releasing The Stans Ins via Jagjaguwar. If you're a regular reader of this blog you know that I'm a big fan and I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel to The Stage Names. Thanks to Jagjaguwar we can hear the first track Lost Coastlines. Okkervil River will play Pearl Street in Northhampton, MA on October 8th. I'm still holding out a little hope for something a little closer to Boston. Keep those fingers crossed.
AGP favorites Times New Viking will release some new music this fall. Stay Awake a 5 song EP will drop in stores on October 21st via matador.
TMV will spend there late fall evenings on stage with Deerhunter, Pylon, and Sonic Youth. They play the Paradise with the aforementioned Deerhunter on November 10th.
