    1. In the front row, an older lady was reading Summer's End by Danielle Steele.

      That same woman attends the event every year and is known to bring along the SMH to read. Seems she's realised her choice had come down to two mostly-fictional items of content and chose to join the growing cohort of ex-readers. Sorry you had to find out this way.

      On a positive note, this woman is clearly a candidate for one of the SMH's super duper 80 per cent off subscription deals.

      You should go and personally save this reader so that you get a good mention from management at the upcoming staff retrenchment function.

    1. A Dream in the Dark is a collection of twelve digital live albums spanning two decades – from Okkervil River’s earliest shows up to the present day. It presents a comprehensive history of the band through the lens of concerts instead of studio albums, and it draws from a massive archive of recordings catalogued by Will Sheff and by fans throughout the years.

      This is utterly worth it. I've yet to see a collection so painstakingly collated, with so much extras in one single package - and that's only the first one, which is so far the sole release out there!

      This'll be like xmas, Summer holidaze, and Okkervil playing your living room, all at once!
