BREAKING NEWS: The Decemberists' Spring Tour On Sale This Weekend
O Colin! O Valencia! O Joy!
The incomparable Decemberists have announced that they'll head back out on the road to tour behind their recent release, The Crane Wife -- one of the best albums of 2006, hands down. And I must say, their performance at NY's Hammerstein Ballroom during CMJ was probably one of the 3 best shows I saw in 2006. And that's saying something, considering the competition.
So if you're even remotely on the fence about whether or not you should catch Colin Meloy and Co., banish all doubt, and dive in. This is one tour you will seriously regret missing. I mean it. There, you've been warned. I've done everything I can. Now it's on you.
Presale begins 1/23 and shows go on sale to the general public starting 1/26-27.
