Deathcab for Cutie

And all the (now somewhat older) indie kids went "Squee!"

Death Cab for Cutie
Death Cab for Cutie is playing at Brewery Ommegang July 21 (a Saturday). It's an outside, rain-or-shine show. Tickets go on sale May 4 (this Friday). They're $39.50.

As you know, Death Cab is a former indie fave now gone mainstream. Frontman Ben Gibbard also collaborated with Jimmy Tamborello on The Postal Service. (His collaboration with Zooey Deschanel was less successful). And Death Cab is Seth Cohen's favorite band.

Conor Oberst
Conor Oberst is playing The Egg July 25 (a Wednesday). Tickets go on sale May 4. They're $35 ahead / $40 day of.

Oberst has often created music under the name Bright Eyes, along with a bunch of other collaborations. The show at The Egg will be solo and acoustic.

Squee!

Another "squee" from this 35yo! And you mean "Postal Service". :)

Editors: Indeed we did. Thanks.

Seth Cohen really liked Bright Eyes too and often went to shows with that girl he dated who was the female version of him.

yes, you nailed it. total "squeeee!" reaction for Death Cab here.

Just saw DCFC in Buffalo...They put on a fantastic show.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
