Roky Erickson and Will Sheff of Okkervil River at Toy Joy, Austin TX from Roky Erickson w/ Okkervil River on Vimeo.

Roky Erickson plays tomorrow night at the Continental Club for the second time in about six months. The Texas Psychedelic Rock blog posted a video last week of Erickson and Okkervil River at Toy Joy in Austin, along with a track listing of Erickson's new album, but for some reason the post's been taken down. But! Through the magic of Google you can view the cache right here, and the video above. Yesterday Pitchfork also posted a link and download of one of the songs off the album, "Goodbye Sweet Dreams".

MCM has been all about the Houston Symphony lately. CultureMap has the deets on the Symphony's young new CEO, who takes the helm in May.
