The Decemberists at Brewery Ommegang

the decemberists 2015

Announced today: The Decemberists are set to play a show at Brewery Ommegang July 26. Tickets go on sale Friday (April 3) -- they're $35 ahead. (There's also a presale starting today for members of the mailing list for promoter Dan Smalls Presents.)

The Decemberists by themselves are a pretty big draw -- they've been playing a string of sold-out shows recently. (Here's a review of a show this week. A giant paper mache whale was involved.) But the show also includes a strong opener -- indie pop act Lucius will take the stage first. They played a sold out show at The Hollow in Albany this past December.

Can't wait for this! The Decemberists haven't been around in a long while (they were on hiatus for a few years), but they used to hit this area (well, western Mass) on every tour. Their shows are always so much fun - audience participation, banter, etc. And seeing them outside a nice summer night is especially great. And Lucius as the opener?! This will be this year's show to beat, IMHO.

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
